Resource Explorer

Manage your image and text resources for localization. Add, and distribute your resources to all your clients - live - without restarting the server.

The resource explorer allows you to manage from any node - client or server - resources whose implementation previously required the application be stopped. Whether they're files from your image library or, for example, XLIFF files for localization, you can simply manage all of your resources by dragging and dropping them on the resource explorer.

  

4D ODBC Driver

Access your database from other applications via the ODBC protocol.

Thanks to the 4D ODBC driver, any application able to “speak” ODBC can access the data in your 4D databases.


This makes it easy to produce graphs and reports using your data with Crystal Reports or Microsoft Excel, or even to create a Microsoft Word report, merge it with a set of contacts, and e-mail everyone the resulting documents.

 

More openness
With ODBC is supported in both Windows and Mac OS, you can run fully cross-platform applications using these functions.

 

Server-side Code Execution

The method parameter "Execute on server" allows a method to be executed on the server, considerably reducing the number of requests exchanged with the client.

SQL Pass-through

Communicate natively with external data sources.

Build an enduring classic

The standalone, single-user desktop application. It's been around as long as the graphical user interface. And it will be around for a long time to come.

As trends and fashions come and go, standalone applications continue to make up the majority of software out there. 4D gives you an integrated suite of tools to create the most useful, powerful, and elegant apps around… And what it takes to run them.

 

Grow, change, adapt.

Businesses grow, change and adapt. Solutions built on 4D do the same.
Growth
Everything we offer is designed with your
business and your solution's growth in mind.

At 4D, we often talk about what users can do with a new feature and end it by saying, “…with minimal code changes!”  

 

We say this because it’s true.

 

Truly cross-platform

4D has long been known for its cross-platform capabilities. But to us, cross-platform is more than about compatibility. It’s about seamless integration.
A world of compatibility
A single development effort can span a

Speaking your language

In programming and spoken languages, 4D is fully multi-lingual.

 

A huge benefit of 4D’s longevity in the database and application development sector is its highly-evolved programming language. It’s powerful enough to create some of the most complex, high performance solutions in the world, but so easy that it’s used at numerous universities to teach programming to budding young developers. 

 

Set the standard

It's our mission to enable you to quickly develop business solutions that are intelligent, powerful, and ready for the future.

 

Numerous standards

We talk a lot about cross-platform and inter-system compatibility as a way for your 4D-based solutions to integrate well with others and to stay up-to-date with the latest technology.
