SqlWindows: OLE Automation Server or Client

Question:
Is SqlWindows an OLE Automation Server or is it only an OLE client?

Answer:
SQLWindows (and Centura Team Developer), in its current incarnation, is an OLE automation CLIENT. That is, it supports

  • In-place activation of OLE objects (like Excel, Word, etc.)
  • Capability to merge its user-interface with that of the server application
  • Invoke and manipulate methods and properties of the OLE server, hence acting as an OLE automation CONTROLLER.

Later this year, a major new release of Centura Team Developer will provide support for, among several other new features, creating OLE Automation servers, a.k.a. ActiveX servers. You may want to visit www.centurasoft.com for more information on coming attractions.
