OpenEdge 11.2 incorporates Mobile App Builder
Progress, a software house specialising in databases and business application software, has added a new Mobile App Builder feature to version 11.2 of its OpenEdge development platform. Mobile App Builder, which runs in the cloud, should enable developers to simply and collaboratively produce mobile applications using OpenEdge. Mobile support will initially extend to iOS and Android devices, but other operating systems should be available in later releases, depending on demand.
Other new features in OpenEdge improve user productivity and the software's performance, including when calling application servers, use of SQL offset/fetch statements and support for the sub-second PAUSE feature in ABL (Advanced Business Language) processes. OpenEdge users can also now use Windows 8, Eclipse 3.7 and SQL Server 2012 to run the development platform.
