  • Reorganize/rename OE Ideas areas

    Under Ideas, please rename "OpenEdge" to something more descriptive like "OpenEdge ABL/Tools" or the like. Several database-specific ideas have been placed under "OpenEdge" rather than "OpenEdge RDBMS", meaning...
  • Ideas about PDSOE or OOABL no longer welcome ?

    • Not Planned
    When creating a POST here you now have to choose between BPM, Corticon, ... There is no option for OOABL or PDSOE. Are those ideas no longer welcome ? The URL ( I have been using...
  • Enable notifications based on keywords

    Since there are now just a few (big!) forums and I really don't care about the forum, I would like to subscribe to keywords rather than forums. For example, I am currently interested in the topic of multi-tenancy. If you search on 'tenancy'...

  • How do I unsubscribe from all these irrelevant Group emails?

    I'd like to unsubscribe from all the Business and Technical group emails. I only need emails for my own post threads. It seems I have to join a group to post - does that mean I have to keep joining and unjoining groups just to be able to post...
  • Give some information about how the ABL Language works behind the screen.

    I always find it motivating to learn how a language is actually written behind the screens. These are some things I would really like to know and the idea is for OpenEdge/Progress to create some wiki entries explaining some techniques like: - The...
