Overview
WEBDEV allows you to create applications/sites that access HFSQL Client/Server databases.
A database in Client/Server mode is used to host the databases on a server (this server can differ from the one where the site is deployed).
This operating mode:
  • increases the security of data,
  • allows you to easily manage the multi-user mode,
  • simplifies the maintenance,
  • allows the connections from the outside (headquarters by back office for example).
WEBDEV allows you to:
  • create a site that is using a HFSQL Client/Server database.
  • modify a site that is using a HFSQL Classic database so that it can use a HFSQL Client/Server database.
Why switch a site to HFSQL Client/Server mode?
The main benefits of a site in HFSQL Client/Server mode compared to a site in HFSQL Classic mode are as follows:
  • The use of HFSQL Client/Server is more secure (use of a login and password and definition of rights granted to the users).
  • No management of directories: all the database files are grouped at the same location.
  • The databases in Client/Server mode can be used by an Internet connection.
  • Management of native multi-user mode: the performances are optimized in multi-user mode.
