Web Services: Architecture and Tools : Benefits of producing Web services using OpenEdge : Language and platform independence

Language and platform independence

Web services built with OpenEdge permit language and platform-independent access to ABL business logic from non-ABL clients. Thus, the passing of data between the client and OpenEdge Web service application is largely transparent to the client language or platform.
Note: The exchange of certain dynamic parameters requires additional information about the data definitions that can be conveyed, in a language-independent fashion, to the client using standard XML schema type definitions.
