How to write an application in Genero BDL

This tutorial is designed for developers new to Genero and the Genero Business Development Language (BDL).

This tutorial explains concepts and provides code examples for common business-related tasks. The only prerequisite knowledge is familiarity with relational databases and SQL.

The chapters contain a series of programs that range in complexity from displaying a database row to more advanced topics, such as handling arrays and master/detail relationships. Each chapter has a general discussion of the features and programming techniques used in the example programs, with annotated code samples. The examples in later chapters build on concepts and functions explained in earlier chapters.

These programs have the BDL keywords in uppercase letters; this is a convention only. The line numbers in the programs are for reference only; they are not a part of the BDL code.

For an overview of Genero BDL, refer to the section Overview of Genero BDL in the Genero Business Development Language User Guide.
