Extend Your 4D Solution to the Web and Beyond

What if you could have a tablet, smartphone and desktop Web browser of your 4D solution with minimal effort? YES you can, thanks to 4D Mobile, which will put your application right in your users' hands.

For years, you've had the ability to host Web pages directly from 4D. With 4D Mobile, you can now extend your 4D solution into a full-featured Web application carrying all of your data and business logic logic to tablets, smartphones or any Web browsers.

 

State of the Art Business Applications

4D's tools are used upon by thousands of developers creating solutions for the largest and smallest businesses, with millions of end-users relying on them daily. 4D v15 delivers, with power, stability, extensibility and improvements that make everyday use better for everyone from developer to end-user.

 

From productivity to mobility, the best 4D ever

Thanks to 4D's R-release program, 4D v15's myriad new features have already been tested and put into production by some of 4D's most intensive users. This means that from the gate, this is the most solid, stable new release of 4D ever. We think you'll agree.

 

Beyond PC vs. Mac

4D’s cross-platform compatibility and consistency is legendary. But now, there's more than just two main platforms. Each browser, each smartphone, and each tablet is a new platform. What they have in common are standards – and 4D is glad to support them.

Out of the box

4D has a built-in Web server. It has a built-in Web services server. And more features to help you get your application online right away, accessing your data directly from the Web.
