WebClient improvements

OpenEdge Release 11.7 provides a new option in the WebClient Application Assembler to continue application execution when the WebClient cannot update its application configuration.
In previous releases when first executing a WebClient application, the software checks the Web server that is hosting the application configuration (prowcapp) file to determine if an application update is available. If the Web server is not available, an error is generated and the WebClient terminates. There are situations where it is appropriate for the WebClient to continue execution, even if it is not able to contact the hosting Web server.
In this release, you can set an option in the WebClient Application Assembler to continue WebClient execution even if it cannot access an updated application configuration. This is the new Continue Offline check-box on the General tab. When selected, the WebClient application that you generate will continue execution if the WebClient cannot access an updated application configuration on the Web server.
