Providing Progress OpenEdge Applications as REST Web Applications

This course is designed for Progress OpenEdge developers who want to provide their ABL applications as REST Web applications and publish them in a development environment.

Product Version: Progress OpenEdge 11.5     Duration: Equivalent to 4 hours of instructor-led training

Course Description

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