Introducing OpenEdge Platform : OpenEdge client-server process architecture

OpenEdge client-server process architecture

During runtime, applications deployed in an OpenEdge process architecture always include one or more client processes, and one or more server processes. This makes it very important for all developers to understand what OpenEdge processes are, and how the code uses these processes.
While developing applications, you must ensure that certain OpenEdge processes are running. For example, to test application code for the business logic, a server process must be running.
