The website demonstration of Application Designer (formerly Composite Application Integrator) shows code snippets of a Natural subprogram. Am I correct in understanding that the only interface between AD and Natural is via a web service? That is, AD is in control, calling Natural-generated services (subprograms).
As a Natural developer, I would prefer to see Natural in control. That is, using the XML Toolkit, I would like to replace INPUT statements with REQUEST DOCUMENT and PARSE to process AD-generated XML pages.
It seems to me that AD is for generating new applications, not for modernizing user interfaces of existing applications. Correct?
(It seemed appropriate to post here, rather than on the CAI Developer’s Forum.)
