ABL clients

The ABL clients include any OpenEdge application, with or without its own user interface:
*GUI or Character clients, including the WebClient
*Batch clients
*WebSpeed agents as clients
*Other AppServer agents as clients
All ABL clients, except the WebClient, are supported on the appropriate platforms (Windows for GUI clients) supported by OpenEdge. The WebClient is supported on the following Windows platforms: NT, ME, 2000, and XP.
