  • Add LDAP into the core OpenEdge product

    • Under Review
    • 0 Comments
    There has been talk on this subject and as I understand it was close to being added to OpenEdge at one point but since was taken off the table. Why? MIS / I.T. managers demand that applications that are installed in their domain support LDAP/AD so as...
  • OE Explorer - UI Refresh

    • Under Review
    • 3 Comments
    The current OE Explorer UI is clunky and harder to use than it needs to be given current UI functionality out there, and it needs to be updated so it's easier to use.
  • Default area assignments for objects

    As we know, an object added to a DB without an area assignment will go into the schema area. As we also know, no application objects should go there. So the price of keeping the Schema Area clean is eternal vigilance. There is no way to prevent future...
  • VST field for date/time of last AI extent switch

    There is no field in _DbStatus or in _ActAILog to show the time stamp of the last AI extent switch. I would like to be able to monitor this as there are situations where the AIMD may stop switching extents, e.g. when it runs out of space in the last...

  • Copy DB and schema

    No idea if this is something that others would want, but currently I need to copy a database and its schema and it would be a lot easier if I could do this with a simple procopy style command.

    To make it easier to troubleshoot what has caused a LockTable overflow, would it be possible to add the feature of dumping the lock table and the associated PID’s when there is a lock table overflow. This would allow to pin-point what is causing...
  • Virtualisation best practices

    I'm missing documentation, whitepapers and best practices around virtualisation. Like it or not but big parts of large systems are running in virtual environments and VMWare, OpenStack, NetApp, 3PAR, SAN-solutions etc is very common in everything...
  • Support for RIGHT OUTER-JOIN

    Hi, RIGHT OUTER-JOIN is currently not a part of the ABL syntax. The knowledge base states: "In the 4GL, you can also implement a RIGHT-OUTER-JOIN by using a LEFT-OUTER-JOIN with the tables in reverse order..." This will however result...

    It is currently possible to change the data-type of a field from int to int64 without dropping the field. Please add support for date -> datetime / datetime-tz int / int64 -> decimal anything -> character see also PugChallenge database...
