Advanced Business Language

 Advanced Business Language

The cornerstone of Progress® OpenEdge® is its powerful programming language: Advanced Business Language (ABL). ABL is the only language on the market specifically purposed to build end-to-end business applications, including business logic, user interfaces and complex data management.

 
 
Build better applications – Faster!
Unlike other languages, ABL empowers application developers to manage relational data in a way that models how the business operates.
 
Here are just a few examples of what makes ABL stand out from other languages:
 
       -Clarity: ABL makes it easy to leverage business terminology and statements to quickly express and understand rich business rules.
 
       -Productivity: Single programming statements in ABL can do the work of hundreds of lines of code in a general-purpose language such as Visual Basic or Java.
 
       -Flexibility: ABL includes all programming methodologies, enabling developers to combine and integrate classes with procedures and vice versa.
 
       -Power: ABL is the only mainstream development language thatprovides built-in capabilities to access, manipulate and store data from different data sources and formats (including relational databases, XML, structured and unstructured files, user-defined formats, etc.) combined with sophisticated business logic.
