Introduction to Progress OpenEdge Integration

This course is for application developers who create Progress OpenEdge ABL applications or integrate ABL applications in their enterprise applications.

Product Version: Progress OpenEdge 11.7     Duration: Equivalent to 1 hour of instructor-led training

Course Description

Software applications, in today’s enterprises, do not work in isolation. They integrate or communicate with other applications, which may be written in different programming languages and run on different platforms. OpenEdge provides tools that enable you to integrate your ABL applications with external non-ABL applications, using industry-standard protocols.

In this course, you will learn about different ways to integrate an ABL application with external non-ABL applications. First, you will learn about different ways of exposing an ABL application to external applications. Then, you will learn about the different ways in which your ABL application can access external applications. For each integration option, you will learn about its runtime architecture and the high-level steps that an application developer must perform to implement it.

This course is available as Instructor-Led Training and online with a subscription to the Progress Education Community.
