Kendo UI widgets use the Kendo UI DataSource to access local and remote data. The Kendo UI DataSource is an abstraction on top of both local data (arrays) and remote data (HTTP endpoints) that makes it much easier to request data, fill widgets with data, and then make and track changes to that data. The transport property in the Kendo UI DataSource configures how to perform the CRUD operations for the DataSource by defining the corresponding properties: create, read, update, and destroy.
Kendo UI has been enhanced to support JSDO as a DataSource as of May 2015. The OpenEdge backend can be accessed through the Kendo UI DataSource using the same architecture used for Mobile app development in OpenEdge 11.2 and greater, the JSDO.
This whitepaper describes how to use the new JSDO dialect of the Kendo UI DataSource with Kendo UI to access data and business logic on an OpenEdge AppServer.
