As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Hi Folks,

I stumbled across some WebFOCUS resources that I think many of you know about already.
Here is the link. Have many of folks used these?

I'm only about two years into WebFOCUS and I know I have plenty to learn. And I really like the idea of having a resource to look through.

There are a few books/chapters there. Are they any that you folks would particularly recommend or discourage from getting?

Thank you,

That is a great book to have. Another one you can get via Amazon is 1001 Ways to Work with DATES in WebFOCUS. It was written when version 7 was out but it still applies to version 8.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Thanks for the reply... there are few books on that site:

WebFOCUS Keysheet
FOCUS Keysheet
FOCUS for Windows Keysheet
The Dates book
FastReport.Net Keysheet

I'm in a Windows shop so I guess I'll get the FOCUS for Windows Keysheet book (I guess that means I won't need the FOCUS Keysheet book). I'm not sure what the difference is with the FOCUS vs WebFOCUS book. I'll get the Dates book, 'cause I've heard alot about it. I've got no idea what the FastReport.Net book is about.

Anyway, the site itself doesn't really give an explanation of what are in these books so I was hoping some of you folks knew.

You only need the WebFOCUS keysheet and the dates books. Forget about the FOCUS and FOCUS for Windows ones. I have not heard of FastReport.Net I don't think it has anything to do with WebFOCUS and looks pretty pricey for not knowing what it is really about.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

The WebFOCUS Keysheet is the most up to date (through version 8.02).
FOCUS for Windows is for the discontinued Windows version (ended at version 6.4e – 2011).
FOCUS Keysheet is for Mainframe/ Midframe versions (CMS, MVS, TSO, UNIX, VAX, Wang etc.).
The Dates book covers all platforms and versions of FOCUS/WebFOCUS.
At it’s core FOCUS is compatible in all versions. Features may vary based on version.
FastReport is a low cost reporting tool that has nothing to do with FOCUS.

Thanks for the reply John. I did purchase the eBooks for The WF Keysheet and Dates book, but there seems to be a problem. I got a receipt, but I did not get an email with a link to the eBooks. I checked my junk mail too. I tried contacting Aviter a few ways but I haven't gotten anything back. Could you help me out? I can PM you the receipt number is that helps.

Thank you,
Shingles
