  • Dump CLOB/BLOB with same file-names

    Every time a table containing a CLOB and/or BLOB field is dumped, the file of the dumped LOB field has a different name. For source-control this changes all the files with every dump. It makes it almost impossible to track the real changes. See LOB...
  • buffer-field:position isn't necessarily correct

    Consider the code below: do i = 1 to bh:num-fields: message i bh:buffer-field(i):position - 1 view-as alert-box info buttons yes-no update ok as log. if not ok then return. end. In a situation where a field has been deleted from the table...

    It would be great to make ABL socket to support client-side certificate authentication also known as mutual authentication ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutual_authentication ). This would add possibility to use Progress http client (OE.Net library...

    Right now delete all records from an OE table is big pain. specially if table contains huge number of record, say 10 million. So support of Truncate table or Empty table programmatically, will be useful.

    I'm reviewing the ABL Ref Doc for stuff on WIDGET-POOLs, and I noted that each case where NO-ERROR is part of the doc, there's a whole dissertation on NO-ERROR relating to CATCH, ERROR-STATUS, etc. In the case of the DELETE WIDGET-POOL statement...
