Providing Progress OpenEdge Applications as REST Web Applications

On-Demand Training


Course Description

This course is available via a subscription to the OpenEdge 11 Developer learning path at $1500 USD per user per year. See How to Subscribe below. 

Representation State Transfer (REST) uses unified resource identifiers (URIs) to identify resources and uses HTTP protocols to act upon resources. In Progress OpenEdge, you can develop your own OpenEdge application using ABL and you can provide select methods, procedures, classes, or even the entire application as a REST Web application. In this course, you will learn how you can expose your OpenEdge ABL application using REST and then publish the application on Pacific Application Server for OpenEdge (PAS for OpenEdge) in a development environment.

This course is also available as Instructor-Led Training.


Equivalent to 4 hours of instructor-led training
