Database Adapter features

Business Process Server applications need to access a database to retrieve and save information. For this purpose, Application Developers design an adapter workstep and use JDBC programming in the adapter class. However, writing JDBC code from scratch is required every time, which can be streamlined using the Database Adapter.
The Database Adapter includes the following features:
*An easy-to-use adapter which is seamlessly integrated with the Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge.
*A pre-built adapter class that loads information dynamically from XML and carries out the execution and mapping automatically, without any additional coding.
*Sequential execution of multiple SQL statements and connecting to multiple databases.
*The DB Adapter uses the default MapConfigurator GUI as described in Understanding the Managed Adapter framework
