Developing AppServer Applications
Connecting to AppServers Using a URL : Internet and intranet connections

Internet and intranet connections

An ABL client or Open Client can connect to an AppServer or application service using a URL that specifies a private network (intranet) connection or a Web (Internet) connection. In an ABL client, you specify this URL using the -URL connection parameter of the server handle CONNECT( ) method. For more information, see Programming ABL Client Applications. In an Open Client, you specify this URL using the appropriate AppObject connect method for your Open Client type. For more information, see OpenEdge Development: Open Client Introduction and Programming.
You can also use the same URL syntax described in this appendix to connect an ABL client to an OpenEdge Adapter for SonicMQ BrokerConnect using one of the ABL-JMS API message service connection procedures. In the following sections, wherever "AppServer" is mentioned, you can substitute "OpenEdge Adapter for SonicMQ BrokerConnect (BrokerConnect)," except in the actual protocol specification of the URL syntax or where otherwise indicated. For more information on connecting to message services using the OpenEdge Adapter for SonicMQ, see OpenEdge Development: Messaging and ESB.
