Tools for Business Logic

Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge Tools for Business Logic allows you to build logical models that are coded as ABL data objects (temp tables and ProDataSets). Using a graphical editor called the Component Designer, you diagram components, adding elements such as tables, columns, indexes, and relationships. As you build your components, OpenEdge stores them either in a component model file or in a database.
After defining the logical structure of a component, you can generate the corresponding ABL source code. You can include this in an existing application, using the ABL Editor to modify it as necessary. You can also reverse this process, creating model components by extracting them from existing ABL source code.
Tools for Business Logic is a perspective that you can launch from the Open Perspective menu. You can access the Open Perspective menu by clicking on the top left of the Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge workbench.
