Prolint/proparse support for OE 11 keywords


I try to use prolint/proparse for newer OpenEdge 11 files that use new Syntax (like XML-NODE-TYPE on temp-tables).

I get the following error:

org.prorefactor.refactor.RefactorException: modules\posi\futura4\getarticles.p:42:3: unexpected token: XML-NODE-TYPE

I installed and downloaded current versions of prolint (release 74) and proparse ( version

Is this supposed to work?
Am I doing something wrong?
Syntax XML-NODE-TYPE should be supported for many years already?
Is prolint/proparse project dead?

Connect to Windows SQL Server from QAD

I'm supporting a QAD application. Over the past 4 years, I've taught myself Open Edge. I'm not expert by any means but I've written some solid maintenance / label printing programs.

I would like to connect to a Windows SQL database, so I can interface it to UPS / FedEx, etc.

What would I need on the Unix side? Do you have recommendations for a Unix ODBC driver?

Also I need some sample code of how I connect to SQL and send SQL commands / invoke stored procedures from a Progress program on Unix.

I would appreciate any guidance.

Database file size - db BI lg Before-Image Cluster Size etc.... 10.2B05

Starting new with a company and working performance issue. Been awhile since I did any DBA stuff. Anyway just some existing db spec:

db size in 12GB on disk
BI size is 13GB on disk
lg size is 7GB on disk - lg born Oct 18 2011
Before-Image Cluster Size: 524288
Before-Image Block Size: 8192

I don't see any BI Truncate lg entries

Online backup only - with the history of the BI file should I expect backup performance issues due to: BI size, BI Cluster size, BI never truncated, all of the above or more?
