property ServerMethod: string;
To create client applications that use no SQL with all of the business logic on the server, you can use a TAstaBusinessObjectsManager on any ASTA server. TAstaBusinessObjectManagers can define these server side "methods". AstaClientDataSets can choose which server side method to use, just by pulling down the ServerMethod property. When a server method is defined, paramaters can be defined also.
To invoke a server method at design time, pull down the ServerMethod property to see a list of methods available on the server. Any parameters defined on the server will be automatically created on the client. You can set these parameters at run time or at design time. When the Active property is set to True, the dataset will populate and any method "coded" on the server will be executed.
