Supporting OpenEdge Servers, Messengers, DataServers, and Adapters : Overview : AppServer


The AppServer is an OpenEdge application that allows you to build and deploy complex distributed applications using ABL. Each AppServer consists of an Application broker (also known as an AppServer broker, or broker) and one or more Application servers. AppServers work with the AdminServer and an optional, integrated OpenEdge NameServer. OpenEdge Management supports configuring, discovering, and monitoring AppServer brokers and managing activities associated with their respective servers from the OpenEdge Management console.
