Structured Error Handling
 What if it was much easier to handle and
propagate error conditions?

Structured error handling:
• Allows a organized, simple and unified method
to handle all errors
• Works with existing 4GL/ABL error processing
• Lets programmers spend less time coding
error handling management routines

What reviewers are saying…
“The OpenEdge 10.1C structured error handling
feature allows us to finally address errors that we
could not properly address before such as those
arising from methods on built-in system handles...”

Static Class Members
 Support for static class members: data

members, methods, and properties.
Less coding
• No need to create object instances
• Automatically available
 Easier Coding
• No need to pass object references
16
© 2008 Progress Software Corporation
Class / method names as reserved keyword
 Problem: Certain .NET type- and method-names
are ABL reserved keywords
 Lifted restriction
• ABL reserved keywords can be type- or method-names

Benefits
• .NET™ friendly
17

NEW function
 Instantiate a class object in an expression
• Do not have to create and assign object reference to
an intermediate variable of class type
 Less coding
• Directly pass :
– Object parameter
– Return value of a new instance of a class
• Have a new object instance in an expression.
