Deployment Considerations : Choosing a Code Format : Encrypted source

Encrypted source

Encrypted source is source code that is encrypted with the XCODE utility (provided with OpenEdge). The user cannot make changes to encrypted source code because it is not readable by the user, so encrypting the source code protects your application.
The following sections provide information about the requirements for using encrypted source and discuss some advantages and possible disadvantages to deploying encrypted source.
More documentation for XCODE can be found in the XCODE utility on page 7.
