Overview
WINDEV allows you to create applications accessing HFSQL Client/Server databases.
A database in Client/Server mode allows you to host the databases on a server.
This operating mode:
  • increases the security of data,
  • allows you to easily manage the multi-user mode,
  • simplifies the maintenance, ...
Diagram representing the Client/Server mode
WINDEV allows you to:
  • create an entire application using a HFSQL Client/Server database.
  • modify an application that is using a HFSQL Classic database so that it can use a HFSQL Client/Server database
Why switch an application to HFSQL Client/Server mode?
The main benefits of an application in HFSQL Client/Server mode compared to an application 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 end users do not see the data files in the explorer and they cannot access them directly.
  • The databases in Client/Server mode can be used via an Internet connection.
  • Management of native multi-user mode: the performances are optimized in multi-user mode.
