Generating Proxies and Web Service Definitions : Getting started with ProxyGen : Starting and using ProxyGen

Starting and using ProxyGen

Start ProxyGen on Windows by opening the Proxy Generator icon in the OpenEdge program group. The ProxyGen main window then opens, as shown in the following figure.
The tree view in the figure shows a previously defined Open Client interface consisting of the OrderInfo AppObject and one SubAppObject, Customer. The OrderInfo AppObject is selected, with its definition showing on the AppObject tab.
The Procedures tab of the ProxyGen main window shows non-persistent procedures and procedure objects, which can be persistent, single-run, or singleton procedures, as shown in the following figure. You can change how a ProcObject will be instantiated using the pull-down menu next to each procedure name. For more information on adding procedure files and setting their types, see Addingand deleting procedure files .
Note: For the purposes of this book, OpenEdge Development: Java Open Clients, and OpenEdge Development: .NET Open Clients, the term "non-persistent procedures" does NOT include single-run or singleton procedures.
