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.
Actian OpenROAD is a rapid application development and flexible deployment solution. With OpenROAD, developers can quickly build and deploy sophisticated high performance and high availability business applications on a variety of platforms, accessing a broad range of data sources. As a result, you can react to business changes faster and protect your investment in existing mainframe and client server data and applications.
