silly cuestión about rest clients

  • (posted on peg, but still down). Greetings to all!!!. Having good times? Hope so. I have this naive question, but haven' give it a deep thought. I'm starting to learn to publish rest services from appserver. And when did try to test it, I found that i wanted to test with a 4gl client, but haven't found if it's possible to call rest services from the abl? Is it a bad dream I had some days ago? Or there is somehow to call rest services from openedge abl? how is it named in manuals, or handbooks? never figured it before Have great days! Jorge Olguin
  • ABL is not supported as a rest client. You can use any third party HTTP client.

  • not true. 11.4 and 11.5 have a rest 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?)

    Thanks Julian.

  • 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.

    appserver unused.

  • So, DSL implies that this connection is across the internet?

  • Yes, indeed...
