Request for Proposal: Backup based database replication system

A proposal to do the following:

On a Progress 10.1x database on a CentOS Linux system referred to in this proposal as system A, generate a set of incremental backup files every n seconds. It will need to be prepared to handle multi-volume back up files.

These files will then be automatically FTP'ed to another CentOS Linux system referred to in this proposal as B. System B will be watching for these files and will automatically apply them to a mirror database who's purpose is to act as a hot swap.

Calling out to a C++ class from the Progress ABL

On a programmer mailing list, there was a question about how to call out to a class in C++ from the Progress ABL. The following gives an example of doing so.

First, here is a bit of C++ code that hopefully illustrates a wrapper on how to call out to a class from the Progress interface (explanation follows):

------------ 2.cpp -----------

extern "C" {

int TestRoutine () ;


class A {

 private :

 int A1;

 public :

 int SetA1 (int V) {

   A1 = V;


 int GetA1 () {

   return A1;


}; // class A

int TestRoutine () {

Technologies and discussion for creating the Web Services videos

There were some questions about how I created the videos for consuming web services and providing web services. So this article will focus on the technologies I used to make them. Not all of these technologies are needed to create and consume web services with Progress - the technology described is for how to create videos showing how to do this.

Quick Training Video On Creating Web Services

There has been many requests in the progress development community as of late on how to provide web services to their ABL based applications. Scott Augé has been gracious enough to create a quick training video starting at the ABL code right through testing the web service.

The video can be seen here: Creating Web Services With The WSA.

The video is 30 and some minutes long and in English.

Please consider Amduus Information Works, Inc. for web service development work in your organization!

Please help with this Progress market survey

Dear Progress Developers, DBAs, and Architecture Administrators,

There has been some conversation of late in the community about the ABL and today's business environment. To help answer some questions, I have put together a quick survey to ask the marketplace some questions. At the end, I have an area where you can expand the survey with your own comments.

The results will be shared by collating the information and not including any specific information to any one company or person. Please include your contact information in the last question for me to send it along to.
