silly cuestión about rest clients

  • Sorry Julian, but I can't find in the documentation.

    Where is it explained?

  • Is the following link what you're looking for?

    http://documentation.progress.com/output/OpenEdge115/openedge115/#page/dvwsv/rest-services-in-openedge.html#

  • Probably not ...

    The requested URL /output/OpenEdge115/openedge115/dvwsv/rest-applications.html# was not found on this server.

    In any event, I think what he needs at this point is guidance on setting up WebClient or a conventional ABL client across the internet, securely.

  • Just updated the link in my previous post... Sorry

  • Same result

  • I was trying to point at "Overview of REST Web services in OpenEdge"

    Page 33 at the following link:

    documentation.progress.com/.../dvwsv.pdf

  • That link works ... but I think is not what he needs now.  Now he needs simple ABL Client, possibly WebClient, and connecting securely over the internet.

  • REST is not a standard not even a protocol, all you have to do is HTTP requests and that can be done over sockets... however as Thomas said if your both ends are 4GL then why bother with REST or SOAP? Just go with the standard appsrv calls over a VPN or use the HTTP connection to appsrv from WebClient (really there is no need for standard client as you don't connect to the database anymore). You'll have to pay more attention on how much data is sent over the wire in an internet setup but that is the same for REST/SOAP approach.

  • Jean, this is only in order to publish REST Services.

    What I'm looking for is to connect from ABL to REST WebService for others sources that are not based in OpenEdge.

    I think that as Thomas and Marian says, is to make a socket connection (secure or not -depends of the source's information-) and work with this.

    Thanks to all.

  • mcs-com,
     
    The code Julian mentioned is an HTTP client that was added into 11.5 as a technology preview (so not yet formally doc'ed/supported).
