Call_Server_Function equivalent for components

Post by Jiri » Fri Mar 10, 2017 11:20 pm

The basic suggestion is included in subject:
- It would be very helpful, if would be possible to establish component -to component communication over network.
Currently, from Windows client, we can invoke only server function (via Call_Server_Function BIF), which is typical procedural code.
From VL_WEB we can call Server routines (which is OO concept), but we cannot call it from other type of object.
For developers who have to work in mixed environments, it is confusing.
The ability to have non-visual reusable component with similar behaviour as Server routine routine which can be invoked from Windows client migt simplify it.
It could be limited, similar as is limited MTHROUTINE invocation from RDMLX function.
