Deployment and Configuration

OpenEdge supplies a number of configuration files—specifically, initialization files, message files, parameter files, and property files—that are especially useful for localizing applications. Some of these files you modify directly, and others you modify by using Progress Explorer. Also, many OpenEdge products provide parameters that let you localize the output.
Many of the files and parameters described in this chapter depend on the CONVMAP file, which contains character attribute tables, case conversion tables, and code page conversion tables, all for a particular code page. For more information on the CONVMAP file, these tables, and code pages, see Understanding Character Processing Tables and Understanding Code Pages.
