Coming to the contents of the file -
Application Program Interface (JDE API’s)
This set is a collection of functions or routines that perform predefined tasks. The API set allows third party applications to interface with OneWorld applications. The published API set makes it easy for you to develop solutions for customers without learning the complexities of OneWorld
API’s comprises of all the Database related activities (C code), those for the JDE Cache functions, media objects and general functions used for Dates/Numbers/Currencies etc
System Functions performs generalized control functions. They are not application specific and perform a variety of general tasks, such as disabling or enabling a control or sending a message.
This section consists of documentation of many system Functions used for UBE’s, Interactive applications, Table Conversions, for specific controls like Tree object, Edit Control, etc.
As the name suggests, if consists of the functions used for XML parsing, Inbound and Outbound parsers, create real time events etc.
This is one of the major part where developers mess up. Correct code in correct event, helps optimized code. Many Technical people do not even know why some of the Events exist in an application.
The events documentation helps a person understand the processing of UBE, Interactive App, Table Conversions, Table events, Constant events etc.
