  • Simplify installation

    Silent install option is nice to have, but it has a few problems: sometimes you would like to change a value (e.g. the install directory) while keeping all the other values as defined in the ini file. I don't like the idea of editing the ini file...
  • No longer do full build job when adding files/directories to "exclude from build"...

    Title says it all. Currently, when adding a file or directory to the "exclude from build" list using the context menu, a full build job is triggered. This is unneeded, and cancelling takes a lot of time when dealing with large projects.
  • Samples for OE REST Adapter Security and Authentication

    Instead of having a truckload of pdf's on REST (Web applications, security, eclipse tools, ...) I would really appreciate some simple helloworld examples on how to set up security, especially when AppServer needs to deal with Security instead of the...
  • WEEKDAY tweak and WEEK-NUMBER function

    I would like a flag in the WEEKDAY function so we can choose to return 1-7 for MONDAY to SUNDAY instead of SUNDAY to SATURDAY. Another option could be a new built in function ISO-WEEKDAY or something like that. According to wikipedia weeks begin on...
  • Support .zip files as an alternative to .pl files.

    Procedure Libraries are nice to use, but cumbersome to work create and maintain while they supply no compression. Using zip files as an alternative on the propath will enable the use of an endless number of freely available tools to maintain the library...
  • Allow access to statically defined TEMP-TABLE and DATASET within the local scope...

    • Under Review
    • 1 Comments
    OO methods cannot currently access statically defined TEMP-TABLE's and DATASET's. There is no generic way to use them (TEMP-TABLE's and DATASET's) locally in a method or exchange them with OO clients via parameters. The only workaround...
  • Ignore STOP-AFTER when stepping in the debugger

    If a STOP-AFTER phrase is in effect, the STOP condition is raised when the time-out is reached while stepping with the debugger. This leads to difficulty in identifying where the problem is. For starters, the code initially seems to "crash"...
  • PDSOE - Enhancement for "Evaluate Preprocessing" Feature

    • Under Review
    • 0 Comments
    Currently PDSOE has a feature called "Evaluate Preprocessing". It seems to have two features. 1) If enabled, it will color "inactive" preprocessor regions different from active ones. Procedures/Functions in the outline view of inactive...
  • Catch or detect WARNINGS

    • Under Review
    • 2 Comments
    We would like to be able to detect warnings on execution of code (and treat the warning as error) We have code where programmers from time to time uses wrong handle and get warnings like: **FIND-FIRST is not a queryable attribute for TEMP-TABLE widget...
  • Ability to use unnamed array as parameter

    Currently you need to create a variable of type EXTENT to be able to pass an array to a method/procedure that expects an array. You should be able to do this without creating a variable first, by just passing in the array as a list of values between square...
