OpenEdge continuously evolves so your business can continue to meet the demands for application performance, availability, security and data management.
The OpenEdge 12 series supports the latest trends in application development and deployment and is the foundation for business and application evolution as you focus on new market demands. Here is some of what you can expect:
Support your business continuity and service-level availability promises with new auto-recovery enhancements that get you back up and running within seconds of a critical failure or outage.
Gain new levels of DevOps and deployment agility through enhanced capabilities for setting up Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipelines, including the Gradle-based ABL compilation tasks and the availability of the OpenEdge database as Docker containers.
Proactively address downtime concerns in development or production with improved performance and availability monitoring through new DevOps tooling.
Strengthen security for multitenant user permissions and keystore cryptography, as well as OpenSSL library upgrade, and more.
With built in HashMap collection support in ABL, application developers can optimize their current applications aside from using it for new capabilities in their applications.
TLSv1.3 is now the default security protocol for OpenEdge, further enhancing security and performance. In addition, the use of OAuth2 and SAML authentication is greatly simplified by a Security Token Service that automatically transforms these industry standard tokens into the Client-Principal internal OpenEdge security token.
Database administrators can now remove and return a data storage area back to the OS without any downtime, especially useful for databases hosted in the cloud.
For those ready to migrate their applications to .NET 6, the successor to the .NET framework and a long term supported release from Microsoft, OpenEdge is ready.
OpenEdge 12.2 is a Long Term Supported (LTS) release. This enables customers to realize the benefits of OpenEdge while continuing to receive technical support for several years. This gives greater operational stability and longevity on a release while allowing informed, confident decisions.
OpenEdge 12.7 is an Innovation release. This release supports continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) to those who benefit from a faster release cadence. An Innovation release also provides customers an opportunity to use and test features that will appear in upcoming Long-Term Supported (LTS) releases.
