What is Projectivity?

We define Projectivity as an Open Source Enterprise Management Platform.

You use Projectivity Platform to implement a Management Application in order to support your business.

Look Understanding Projectivity for a complete definition of Projectivity.

How can I use Projectivity Platform to address my needs?

You need to download, install Projectivity and install a Framework that suits your needs.

What is a Framework

In a few words a Framework is what turns Projectivity Platform in a specific application.

The Platform includes most of the features you need, such as document management, and resource management.

The Framework defines the business domain you are interested in, and allows you to manage the entities you are interested in.

For instance a Framework might define how projects are structured in your company, so that Projectivity adapts to your needs (and not - as usual - vice-versa).

I have a problem with Projectivity, how can I troubleshoot it?

First look at your Projectivity log file.

This is located under <PROJECTIVITY_DIR>/server/projectivity/log/projectivity.log

Most of the time you will find a Java Exception in the log that will help you identify the problem. You can also post the error on the forum if you don't know what to do.
