Actian- OpenROAD – 4GL App Development



What is OpenROAD?

OpenROAD is a database-centric, object-oriented, 4GL rapid application development (RAD) tool that lets you develop and deploy mission-critical, n-tier business applications against databases such as Ingres, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and DB2 UDB.

Developers using the newest release, OpenROAD 6.2, will find a much improved platform that can easily restyle existing applications, extend and customize business objects, field types and frame types and add new behaviors that previously either required a lot of code or simply weren’t possible.
