Initial Programming Considerations : ABL issues : Compiling ABL procedures

Compiling ABL procedures

The COMPILE statement lets you compile ABL procedures and save the compilations to disk. This speeds up your application since ABL does not have to recompile it every time you want to run a procedure.
To compile procedures that access an Oracle database, start up the OpenEdge procedure editor and connect to the schema holder for your target Oracle database using the schema holder's logical database name. Then use the COMPILE statement. If you change the name of the schema holder after compiling a procedure, you must connect to the renamed schema holder and recompile the procedure. You do not have to connect to the target Oracle database to compile a procedure.
For more information, see the "COMPILE Statement" reference entry in OpenEdge Development: ABL Reference.
