  • Add ability to return custom object fields in SOAP faults returned from an OpenEdge...

    Currently, the Web Service Adapter, when generating a SOAP fault from a customised AppError object, will only return the standard AppError ReturnValue field. It would be useful for the fields in a serializable custom class based on the AppError class...
  • Support for CASE-SENSITIVE properties

    Currently the CASE-SENSITIVE option is not available for properties. You have to create a separate variable and make that one CASE-SENSITIVE to work around this. A direct solution would be more elegant...
  • HLC (Host Language Call) support for PASOE

  • Javac-style Command-Line Compiler

    I'd like to see a command-line compiler function in OpenEdge. For tooling purposes, it would be nice if there was a standard way of running a compile statement outside of having to write ABL code to it. Something like javac for java.

  • SUPPROMSGS for OEDK: Classroom Edition

    Non english language pack exists only in additional language pack and is not available for OEDK: Classroom Edition users. This is serious problem for newbie. Please add a language pack (SUPPROMSG) to the OEDK: Classroom Edition
  • 10 decimal limit.

    We need more decimals when doing math in Progress 4GL. We get round errors in amounts, and have to make different work-arounds to go around this limit. Is there a plan to solve this in Progress 4GL?
