The smartDataPump was developed with Progress® 9.1D under Win2k, fat clients with connections to a couple of enterprise databases and AppServers on a Win2k machine. The ADM2 framework was a modified and patched 9.1C version. It should run fine with higher versions, because I've used only ADM2 functionality documented in 9.1D/F, especially no pseudo syntax relying on include files which may disappear or change in later versions.

To make use of the smartDataPump, the clients need a current version of a web browser and optional MS-Excel®. So far the technical stuff.

The implementation of generic solutions can become a PITA, when the business application was designed with blurred standards and/or the underlying model lacks a strong naming convention. The smartDataPump partly relies on consistent naming rules, since all information it uses internally as well as on the surface is extracted from the database schema and SDO definitions. Read my article Do's and Don'ts of Progress® Database Design to understand the importance of strong naming and design rules.

With a legacy database you'll get mad on filter definitions and similar stuff, or you'll live with crappy reports ;)
