CA ADS Application Compiler (ADSA)

This section contains the following topics:
The CA ADS application compiler is an application design and prototyping tool. During an application compiler session, the application developer defines the components and structure of an application. When the definition is complete, the application developer compiles the application. The resulting load module is stored in the data dictionary for use at runtime.
When the load module for an application is compiled, the only definitions that must exist in the data dictionary are those global records specifically associated with the application. All other entities associated with the application can be created and added to the dictionary at any time before the application is executed. This feature allows the application developer to upgrade application components without having to recompile the application.
