Published: 26 July, 2008
4D, Inc., maker of an integrated software platform that simplifies the process of developing and deploying business applications, announced today the release of 4D Web 2.0 Pack v11 Release 2. The new version, a combination of two products -- 4D Ajax Framework and 4D for Flex -- brings a powerful set of tools, plug-ins, and components that allow 4D developers to easily harness the power of Web 2.0 technologies, and deliver live web and rich internet applications to browsers, desktops, and portable devices such as the iPhone.

"With the advent of technologies like Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) both Flex-powered and Ajax-driven, the iPhone, Adobe AIR, HTML 5, and Google Gears, web applications are making their way to more mobile devices, desktops and, yes, browsers than ever before," said Laurent Ribardiere, President and founder of 4D.

4D for Flex provides the world's first Flex-to-database direct connectivity. All other Flex-to-database solutions require complicated, overweight middleware solutions. 4D for Flex offers a simple, integrated Flex-to-SQL database direct connection. With zero overhead, 4D for Flex not only provides a revolutionarily simple, integrated architecture, but also high-performance connectivity to 4D Server v11 SQL and other industry standard SQL databases.

4D Ajax Framework is an integrated Ajax framework and application server that combines the power of Ajax and 4D databases, bringing 4D application data to your browser, RIA, iPhone, and more. Using the power of HTML 5 and Google Gears, users can now access their web applications even when they are offline. Fully data-interactive iPhone 2.0 applications can be built with zero coding, or completely enhanced for 100% customized data applications.

"4D's commitment to working with its Web 2.0 Pack customers (in providing timely and responsive solutions) is clearly evident in the 11.2 release," said Steve Orth, President and CEO of Aquila Group. "This feature packed release provides the necessary tools for Developers to quickly -- and professionally - - bring their applications to the web. It's a required product/upgrade if you are serious about harnessing the power of 4D and Web 2.0!"
