 OpenEdge Installation & Deployment

  • expose each and every OpenEdge IP port as product installation parameter

  • provide an automatic installation configured by a parameter or configuration fil...

    Automatic installation by virtue of “silent install” and a “response” file is just a workaround for an automatic installation, that can be controlled by a configuration file (e. g. an xml file). Working with the response file syntax...
  • provide feature to create an .msi installer

    Provide the means to create a custom .msi file, which includes the AP’s 3 rd party products and OpenEdge products such as Client Networking. Being able to create your own .msi is preferred over providing a merge module.

  • Command line ABLDoc

    There should be a CLI command for generating ABLDoc. According to documentation it's currently limited to either Eclipse or ANT. Having a generic command line program that can do this makes it easier to integrate whatever build system you might...
