Web Applications - Fast & Easy

The DataFlex WebApp Server is a high performance, fully integrated application server for deploying browser-based applications, Web Services and service oriented architecture (SOA) solutions.

The Visual DataFlex Web Application Server features load balancing and process pooling for superior scalability and performance.Since WebApp Server is an integrated component of Visual DataFlex, it utilizes and leverages the complete resources of the environment. VDF Studio is the integrated development environment for web applications building; Data Dictionary Objects and Business Process Objects can be shared among Windows client-server and web applications and web services.

A single development-deployment architcture that uses shared components and common code means faster development, less code, easier maintenance and, overall, less complexity to build and deploy solutions.

Technically, the DataFlex WebApp Server is a compact, highly-efficient, C++ based application and transaction processing engine that connects to users and/or services via Microsoft IIS and to a variety of database options using Visual DataFlex’s standard connectivity architecture.

The WebApp Server’s design provides a fundamentally secure environment. An HTML interface defines visual properties for web pages and a messaging protocol for communication with the application server.  Server-side applications are driven entirely by messages. Applications code and database access and manipulation code are compiled and run in the server.
