is it possible to use a progress/openedge database with eclipselink?
There is no DatabasePlatform (like
org.eclipse.persistence.platform.database.MySQLPlatform for example) for
progress/openedge. But does another Platform work? Or is there a workaround?
As long as Progress is JDBC and SQL compliant you can use the default DatabasePlatform.
You could also use one of the other platforms if Progress is similar to one of them.
A custom platform should only be required to extended support, such as DDL generation, sequencing, pagination, etc.
If you find you need extended support, you could create your own DatabasePlatform subclass using the other available platforms as a reference.
You may also consider contributing it back if it would be useful to other users.
