.NET Open Clients
Preface : Purpose


The Open Client Toolkit (a component of OpenEdge® Studio) exposes AppServer™ functionality to Open Clients (non-ABL clients). As discussed in OpenEdge Development: Open Client Introduction and Programming, the ProxyGen tool allows you to generate proxy objects for .NET (and other) Open Clients. These proxy objects encapsulate remote 4GL procedures and functions supported on an AppServer. Your .NET Open Client application can then access these AppServer procedures and functions through methods of the generated proxy objects.
This book contains .NET-specific information about creating and using Open Clients. It describes how to develop .NET Open Clients and how to provide access to ABL business logic from .NET clients.
