Last week at the Exchange we learned that Rollbase allows to create external objects, that don't map to a database table using SQL, but instead map to CRUD methods in the Appserver (via REST-server). There is a whitepaper describing how this is done.
I am now assigned to do a POC/Prototype so I am searching for this whitepaper, really need it in a hurry. But can't find it. Please can someone point me to the location of that whitepaper?
I do not believe the specific white paper you mention exists, but there are ones that are similar or related. I know that at Exchange 2013, there were dozens of sessions with information on whitepapers, roadmaps, and features, so there could be some confusion. I hope this straightens this out -- I will say that I have not been involved with every white paper, but I have been a reviewer on many of them.
The specific question in this thread is about creating Rollbase Objects tied to OpenEdge data structures.
(and apologies to anyone who gets this response as an unwanted mail message ;-)
Sure - have a look here businessmaking.progress.com/.../wpr-AccessingOEAppServerfromRollbaseJSDO. If you are familiar with oemobile jsdo this will be very, very easy to do.
Thanks John, but no that's a different whitepaper, not the one I am waiting for. The whitepaper you point at is a couple of months old and describes how to fetch data from client-side JScript (the script executes in the HTML browser). The whitepaper I am searching is about defining external objects where the CRUD actions map to appserver calls. Mike Ormerod said during the Exchange that this whitepaper is new, less than a couple of weeks old, and "somewhere on a website".
Are you searching the Whitepaper "Accessing the Progress OpenEdge AppServer from Progress Rollbase Using the JSDO" on www.progress.com/.../white-papers
Hi Stefan, no not that whitepaper but a new one, about external objects. Thanks anyway
Not sure whether there is a distinct White Paper on External Tables in an OpenEdge RDBMS, however, there is Appendix C introducing the feature "external tables", see here:
Maybe that one gets you the answers?
Hi Stefan, external tables need to reside in the same database as the portal database and are not available on the hosted Rollbase.
Jurjen asked about a WP for accessing the AppServer. To my knowledge that WP is still under review.

sorry Jurjen, I can't say I've seen the white paper you mention. "somewhere on a website" good luck finding that..... Although Mike's comments above suggest it maybe not available yet.
Still under review, that could be it. Thanks.
Hi Jurjen, you might check out that jdbc driver we've talk about last year... didn't implemented 'select over stored procedures' but added some 'view' component that works with select but delegate fetch to a business logic routine - no support for update on views just yet though :(
Chriselst, your response is very off-topic to this thread, you should and could have created a new question. Manage your subscriptions at page community.progress.com/.../forumsubscriptions.aspx
Please people, I agree that the default "you are now subscribed to everything" is annoying but please use your anger energy not for disturbing a conversation, but for finding a solution. Like, unsubscribe here: community.progress.com/.../forumsubscriptions.aspx
Thanks for the detailed answer! I am afraid this will change our planning: wait for the December release.
This paper should get posted in the next day or so. I'll update the thread with the link once it's posted.
The White Paper: Accessing the OpenEdge AppsServer from Rollbase using Object Script, has been posted (Oct 18)
