The release is another milestone demonstrating Data Access’ continuing commitment to provide professional application developers with advanced tools that deliver the unique combination of strength, openness, continuity and innovation.

“As the technology industry delivers the most far-reaching and rapid changes in its history, DataFlex 2014’s broad new capabilities convey that DataFlex is in motion, building a stronger marketplace presence and embracing change to pursue the opportunities of an era in which software and information are literally at everyone’s finger tips,” says Data Access’ president and CEO, Chip Casanave.

DataFlex 2014 advances the platform’s feature set for commercial Windows and web applications, and implements numerous enhancements and customer suggestions to drive developer productivity up and total application cost down.

Key improvements include enhancements to the DataFlex Web Framework, which makes it much easier to build complex business applications with less code, more re-use of code and components, better application structure, and robust scalability. Also included are product-wide optimizations for SQL servers, Studio enhancements that improve developer productivity, and new and expanded core product capabilities, including new Data Dictionary features and classes, improved Client Web Services and WSDL parser, and more.

“Our Windows framework is robust and mature. The DataFlex Web Framework provides Windows-like capabilities for browser-based business applications on a common technology core,” Chip says. “The new framework also forms the foundation for evolving mobile application capabilities to come.”

DataFlex web and Windows applications share a common technical platform so developers can reuse large portions of Windows application code and business logic to create new, browser based solutions in minimum time. The secure, high-performance DataFlex WebApp Server integrates seamlessly with the Windows application environment.

With DataFlex Studio and its Windows and web application frameworks, class library and rich set of pre-programmed, data-aware controls and components, the design and implementation of all applications is a structured, well managed process resulting in fast, reliable business solutions.
