Defining PAS for OpenEdge
PAS for OpenEdge is a web application server that lets you deploy all OpenEdge services on a single server. With the ABL AppServer and OE Web server, you had to deploy business logic on the AppServer broker (restbroker1), and the Data Object service on the OE Web server.

1. From the Servers view in the OpenEdge Server perspective, right-click and select New > Server from the context menu. The Define a New Server box appears.
2. To select PAS for OpenEdge as the server type, do one of the following:
*Type Progress Application Server in the Select the server type field. This setting filters the results to display only the PAS for OpenEdge's list.
*Select Progress Software Corporation > Progress Application Server as the server type from the list in the box.

10. To configure an available project module, select the module in the Available list and click Add or double-click the module in the Available list. To configure all the available project modules, click Add All.
Note: You can remove a project module from the Configured list by selecting the module and by clicking Remove or double-clicking the module in the Configured list. You can also select more than one project module and click Remove All.
