English Transforming Non-XML Documents

Although XSLT and XQuery are adept at handling XML documents, much of the information in an enterprise is not in XML format. During the Progress Exchange 2005 session Transforming Non-XML Documents with XML Tools Tony Lavinio demonstrated some of the tools in Stylus Studio® that can be used to build adapters for transforming non-XML documents to use both within Stylus Studio and in external applications, especially ones built with Progress OpenEdge®. All slides, audio portion, and samples of code of this session are provided on this page.

English What Are Web Services?

This is an extract taken from the Progress Web Services Toolkit Guide and Reference, chapter 1.1: 'The key words in defining Web services are industry standards. Web services represent a widely accepted set of industry standards that allow distributed applications to communicate and exchange data without concern for each other's specific platform requirements.' This introduction explains these standards (HTTP/S, XML, SOAP, WSDL ...), and describes how they are implemented by Progress® for use in standard Web service architectures. Progress® currently supports 4GL client access to Web services by using Progress® socket programming or by using the Progress SonicMQ® Adapter and an ActiveX control to exchange SOAP messages over HTTP. Here you get all the basics you need to understand Web service development with Progress®.

English Using XML And Sockets To Do Real Work

Two of the most powerful features of the newest versions of Progress are the ability to directly manipulate sockets and the built-in XML parser. These tools allow users to manipulate a wide variety of environments and truly open the world of application-to-application development as well as business-to-business processes. Steven Lichtenberg's article explains the handling of sockets and XML with Progress® 4GL on a real world use case: sending and receiving fax information using the XML-F portion of the VsiFax server.

English Using XML with the Progress 4GL

This white paper by Gus Bjorklund describes a set of Progress 4GL capabilities, introduced in Version 9.1A, that enables Progress applications to use Extensible Markup Language (XML) as a means of data exchange. Local PDF.
