Why shouldn't I use a free Ajax framework like Dojo or YUI?

There's no reason you can't. However, there are some things that 4DAF does that those other frameworks simply do not offer. For example, we've focused 4D Ajax Framework on providing powerful query handling and data organizing, such as our data tree and calendar controls.

Is a web application built with 4D Ajax Framework meant to replace 4D Client?

Not at all. We've introduced 4D Ajax Framework to give you more choices, not less. Using a web browser as a 4D client is meant to be an additional option to go alongside of using the existing 4D Client.

I have a large, complex 4D structure and I don't want to add any new tables or forms to it. What will 4D Ajax Framework do to my structure?

Nothing. You need to add one component to the application, but the rest of your data structure doesn't need to be touched.

How exactly does the SQL Unlimited license work?

The SQL Unlimited expansion is installed on 4D Server, allowing it to accept multiple SQL connections from third-party applications, without using up your 4D Client licenses.

 

The only limit is the physical capacity of your machine to effectively handle multiple SQL processes, based on the number and power of its processors.

 

The SQL Unlimited Expansion license is sold for servers with up to two processor cores. For more powerful servers, you can buy additional licenses corresponding to the number of processor cores on your machine.

Where can I find 4D Interpreted Desktop?

4D Interpreted Desktop is no longer provided as a separate executable.

 

However, the free deployment license for 4D Interpreted Desktop is still provided with all our development products.

 

To freely distribute your application in interpreted mode, distribute your 4D application (the same one that you use for development) along with your 4D database. Your end-users can use the application without a 4D product number.

Can I attach a 4D Client license to 4D Team Developer Professional?

No. 4D Team Developer Professional, as a server-based development license, only accepts 4D Team Developer Expansion licenses to increase the number of concurrent users, in addition to the two clients provided by default.

 

If you have 4D Server Developer 2004 as well as 4D Client Expansion 2004, and would like to upgrade to 4D Team Developer Professional v11 SQL, please contact your 4D representative.

Do 4D Client licenses still exist?

Yes. Even though 4D Client isn't a physical product anymore, the means of selling and licensing 4D Client expansions has not changed. You still have two client licenses included with 4D Server or 4D Team Developer Professional. You can purchase 1-, 5-, or 10- user 4D Client expansions for 4D Server v11 SQL to increase your number of concurrent users. 4D Client licenses reside on and are counted from the server.

Where is 4D Client?

With the release of 4D Server v11 SQL, "4D Client" is included in the 4D application. 4D Client, as an executable, is no longer installed on your machine.


To connect to 4D Server, launch 4D and follow the instructions in the new Wizard, or simply choose Open Remote Database... from the File menu.

4D Ajax for Dreamweaver Demos

A simple but rich demo application and example HTML pages to run in Adobe Dreamweaver™ CS3 (or higher) with the 4D Ajax for Dreamweaver plug-in.


It will show you just how easy it is to integrate 4D Ajax objects into web sites using Dreamweaver.

 

Tech Support

Originally a Windows MDI application, this demo uses the 4D Ajax Framework Client to connect to the application for immediate use as a Web app.


No custom code was necessary for the Web portion of this demo - all customization was performed via 4D Ajax Framework's Admin tools.
