Introducing Tools for Business Logic

Tools for Business Logic in Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge let you build models that represent ABL application modules as logical components. 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 in a component model file or in a database.
An OpenEdge view called the Application Schema Explorer simplifies the process of finding and reusing existing code and model elements. This view lets you browse your code base and your existing model database for available elements.
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 OpenEdge editor to modify it as necessary. You can also reverse this process, creating model components by extracting them from existing ABL source code.
