what are spec in jde?

This is the simplest answer I can give but specs are what define an object and how it behaves on the E1 system.

How it looks, it's internal code, the number and order of table columns etc.

Different objects have different types of specs.

UBEs have RDA specs
Applications have FDA specs
Other objects will be stored in files called ddict/ddtext/gbltbl spec files

All these will be on your enterprise server so E1 knows how to perform the logic you request on the screen, they are also on FAT clients.

As I said, that's a brief explanation. It goes much deeper than that but in a nutshell they are just run time instructions for the servers to know what to do.
