The Sonic Native Invocation client type generates a script file (.esboe file) for each specified procedure or function that can be imported directly into Sonic Workbench for deployment to a Sonic ESB container. When a Sonic ESB process is created using the Sonic Native Invocation methodology, ABL procedures are called directly through an OpenAPI call to an OpenEdge AppServer. For more information on the Sonic Native Invocation methodology, see OpenEdge Development: Messaging and ESB.
Note: You can also change the deployment settings for this client type during deployment to a Sonic ESB container.
