4. Guidelines for Using LANSA Open

A number of sample programs are provided with LANSA Open to assist you in understanding the use of the LANSA Open functions and also to help you develop your own applications.

This chapter contains some things you need to know when using specific PC application development tools.

This information is current at the time of printing.

Note that if you are programming using any language that targets the .NET runtime (e.g. C#, VB.NET), you should use LANSA Open for .NET instead of LANSA Open.
The use of LANSA Open from .NET languages is NOT recommended due to incompatibility with .NET strings – manual conversion is required when passing .NET strings.


Visit LANSA's website for some LANSA Open Application Examples which include declarations and sample applications.
