ORDA/REST performance is a strategic matter; that’s why we shipped many features related to this topic, such as the ORDA/REST request optimization in Client/Server and when working with a remote datastore. Lately, we also gave you complete control over the ORDA/REST request optimization.
This blog post gives you the plan to follow in order to ace your ORDA/REST performance game. It includes other blog posts to read, videos to watch, and a demo to play with to increase performance in your applications quickly and easily.
What to read?
First of all, we advise you to read this blog post, in which we explain how the use of ORDA to access large tables (especially those with relations) in Client/Server mode has been greatly enhanced. You’ll see that LAN performance is two to three times better and that WAN performance has increased up to 30 times. And best of all – there’s no need to change anything in your code; it’s all automatic.
What to watch?
If you want more details and concrete examples, there’s a breakout session on the ORDA/REST request optimization where I will show you how it works internally in 4D.
Watching this video will guide you through the REST request optimization with simple examples. And that’s not all… the good news is that the demo used during this video is now available ?
Get your hands dirty.
Since the tools used in the demo are now available in v19R5, you can download the demo to play with the code and discover the ORDA/REST request optimization mechanisms by yourself.
Once you are comfortable with all of the above, you’ll enjoy reading this blog post and the power that comes with knowing how to take complete control of ORDA/REST request optimization to improve the performance of your applications.
