When you are working in an OpenEdge project, Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge often creates data files that contain configuration information for the project or for project resources. You often include these data files when you are importing, exporting, or sharing projects or project resources.
Most project data files are visible in a project's Resources view. Some files (.resx, for example) are hidden by default. The Resources view has a Filters option on its drop-down display menu where you can choose which file types to display or hide.
Some of the OpenEdge project data files are:
A list of the assemblies where .NET classes are stored that is referenced at compile time and run time.
A list of the database connections used by a project.
A .NET resource file that can contain localized values for controls, as well as binary graphic files.
A list of the Sonic Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) annotations in ABL code that can be exported to a Sonic environment.
General project information, such as the name and the nature of the project.
A list of the directories in the project's PROPATH.
A list of the changes to the Visual Designer Toolbox.
