Progress OpenEdge sender

Progress OpenEdge sender

The Progress OpenEdge sender can be used to call an OpenEdge procedure. The called procedure has no output parameter, but does have one or more LONGCHAR input parameters. If you use more than one input parameter, separate them with a ,

If a procedure has to be called with an input parameter and an output parameter, the Progress OpenEdge Gateway Service must be used.

The input parameters are filled with the String content of the MessagePart-In on the ConnectMessage. If you use more than 1 parameter, use ALL at the messagePart-in to make use of multipart messages (one per parameter).

In the table below, you will find an explanation of these properties. All attributes with a ‘*’ are mandatory.




By default, we fill this out with the technical ‘tag’, followed by a serial number. Changing the name is optional.
