Programming question for PALM
Posted on 2003-12-08
<<Background & Problem>>
I am a project planner who working on Insurance company. And I am planning an PALM application.
Currently, our company agent check their client's information and policy information through our company's intranet. And I am propose to my boss let agent download the information to their PALM, but my boss concern if the agent terminate, they will hold the data on their PALM.
<<My high level idea>>
Since the agent need the user id and password to access our company intranet, I want to plan there are time setting on the palm application, say when agent download all the data and then convert to the PALM application, they can see such information within 1 days. After the day, they cannot see the data, they need access to Intranet to generate the activation key, then input to the Palm application, then they can see the data again.
So, if the agent's termination, our company will block their Intranet accout, they cannot generate the activation key and cannot see the data on PALM application.
<<There are Problem>>
But in my experience, programmer will using the date to generate activation key, say if today (12.9.2003), the activation key is 0998877, the agent's termination on next day (13.9.2003), Although he or she cannot generate the up-to-date activation key, but he or she can set their palm date back to 12.9.2003, and input the old activation key.....then, he or she can see the data again.....so, how can I do??
