Downloading executables for heterogeneous environments
The distributed architecture of OpenEdge allows you to optimize your hardware and network resources by installing components across networked machines, specifically when you are installing an OpenEdge Application Server component. Although some of these products' components must reside together on the same machine, you can, in some cases, distribute components to different machines, even if the machines run on different platforms. For example, you can install a WebSpeed Messenger or the NameServer in Windows and install a WebSpeed Transaction Server on UNIX.
The following list identifies executables that you can download for a platform other than Windows:
*WebSpeed Messenger
*Secure AppServer Internet Adapter (AIA)
*Web Services Adapter
*OpenEdge Adapter for Sonic ESB
*Promsgs (OpenEdge Messages)
*REST Adapter
*Business Process Modeler
The executables can be downloaded free of charge from Progress Software's Download Center at
