Introducing OpenEdge Platform : A comprehensive view of the components in OpenEdge : OpenEdge DataServers

OpenEdge DataServers

OpenEdge DataServers provide Advanced Business Language (ABL) applications with a flexible, transparent interface that enables simultaneous access to multiple data sources. This enables organizations to allow access to diverse data sources throughout the enterprise. These applications use ABL specifically designed to translate knowledge about business operations into software.
OpenEdge DataServers combine the rapid application development benefits of the OpenEdge component-based development environment with the high performance of today's powerful database engines, such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and ODBC.
