RE: Is anybody left viewing this trhread RoyLatham (MIS) 24 Jan 09 17:16 Yes.Do you have a question? Or are you just lonely? RE: Is anybody left viewing this trhread howmnsk (Programmer) (OP) 24 Jan 09 22:52 I was just wondering if anybody else is still working with MAPPER/BIS & CoolICE. I have been working with it for over 25 years.I wish that there were more users of MAPPER/BIS. RE: Is anybody left viewing this trhread IHHE (Programmer) 25 Feb 09 10:45 There are still a small number of programmers in the Netherlands as well. I have been programming for 25 years as well. BIS/Mapper programmer seems to be a dying profession. RE: Is anybody left viewing this trhread MarkHorvath (MIS) 25 Feb 09 14:44 I'm still supporting a legacy Mapper system although we are probably migrating away from the platform in the next few years. I'm also interested in how many Mapper sites are still out there. RE: Is anybody left viewing this trhread Robbbert (Programmer) 14 May 09 21:11 We got rid of our production Mapper system last year, but I have a small database which I use to interface to various systems to control security.For example, it uses ODBC extract to pull data from HR.It uses a script to pull data from Active Directory.When payroll terminates someone, then I can see that the AD account needs to be closed.In similar fashion it interfaces to other systems that require logons.Since AD has phone numbers, email addreeses etc, Mapper can do an automatic update of our Intranet phone book.This all works quite well. Mapper is running on its own 2003 VM server with 3GHZ processor, and is very fast. RE: Is anybody left viewing this trhread PurpleT (Programmer) 29 Jul 09 17:09 I work at an insurance company in Iowa and there are close to two hundred mapper programmers here, so a veritable hotbed. So far, no talk of migrating to anything else. RE: Is anybody left viewing this trhread mountainweb (Programmer) 6 Aug 09 09:00 Hey, good to find you guys out here on the net. In reality, quite a few Mapper mainframe sites and lots of Windows and Unix site running. I am still working with Mapper, supporting customers across the whole US. Still working for "the company".
