Course Details

This course is intended for application developers who want to incorporate modern,
efficient data-handling in their applications. Students should have experience working
with Advanced Business Language (ABL). This course guides students through the
design and development of applications using ABL datasets (ProDataSets).
In this course, the student will learn how to identify when and where to use datasets
and then practice incorporating datasets into applications during hands-on exercises
using Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge. The course emphasizes defining,
populating, and performing data operations using datasets and sharing data with
other applications. The course includes an overview how datasets are used in a
distributed architecture, how to control the behavior of datasets, and how read or write
dataset data as JSON data.
