ABL is not supported as a rest client. You can use any third party HTTP client.
then the way to go it's web services, then.... If I want a 4gl client to Access some appserver routines...
where can I find info about it?
How it is called in the handbooks?
(english is not my mother language, that's why I can´t find it?)
If you have an ABL client and an AppServer, why are you talking REST or Webservices at all instead of just a plain old AppServer connection? Or, if you want to run it from a browser, WebClient?

I need to have a computer attached to a little walmart cart-kind of, and want to move to several different sites (slouther houses) and register records from there. The thing is I have Little time to acomplish, and it's Little late to learn webspeed, or anything else,all I now is 4gl... ;)
I've read twice your post Tom, and just seen: WebClient.... Thats the way to go, didn't?
Well, depends on the rest of the configuration. If you have a computer on a cart with a wireless ethernet connection to your server, then you could do either Webclient or a regular ABL client as you prefer. If the connection is remote, i.e., internet, I think there are some tunneling techniques you could use to still do either, but WebClient would minimize the install and licensing on the cart.
Mmmhhh.... Tunneling ... very,very interesting....
Perhaps I didn't need to develop nothing at this point and got the turn key solution at hand and didn't noticed. That would give me more time to develop the mobile apps I owe....
Could you mention some, to have a solid point of start?
Thanks in advance.
Not my area of expertise ...
Which said, if you want someone to offer clear advice, you would be well advised to provide a clear description of the setup ... the client, the connection, the speeds, the server location, etc.
Yes, you are right...
Floating cpu (cart-cpu): plain vanilla windows amd 4 gb ram
normally, the connection is throug a dsl 4 Mb (telco: Telmex)
in site the entrance is by a 20 Mb cable copper. (the site has load-balanced 6 telcos 4 Mb dsl's and 2 - 20 Mb cable modem) managed by a pfSense router.
Database is 11.2 on unix, 16 ram, workgroup database has 100% cache hits.
internal client-server clients: 10 to 15.
So, DSL implies that this connection is across the internet?
