With the Metadata Open Standard for RPG OA, RPG developers can substitute DDS UI description in XML, enabling development for modern applications and devices. It allows developers to extend existing RPG code and develop new applications, using exiting RPG programming skills.The open standard provides cross-solution compatibility, providing more flexibility when using RPG OA.
Version 2 of the standard leverages the interactivity between OA handlers and the user interface. It also allows for inclusion of support for device-specific formats such as JSON, HTML5 or Office Open XML, WSDL etc. For more information on the standard: http://yips.idevcloud.com/oasite/wiki
This standard not only opens any user interface description for Display files, but also for Physical or Printer files. From desktop, browser, mobile, SOA or office documents, any UI can natively be described with a common standard that RPG can control with Open Access.
You will see examples of how a handler can take advantage of the multi tier architecture of Open Access to address many aspects of customization or globalization for modern interfaces and devices.
Anyone involved in RPG development or interested in the future of RPG should attend this session.
