4D AJAX Toolkit Released

4D Web 2.0 Pack Brings Live Internet Data and Rich Internet Application Development to the 4D World

(SYS-CON Media) - 4D, maker of an integrated platform that simplifies the process of developing and deploying business applications, announced the availability of the 4D Web 2.0 Pack, an extensive developer toolset that lets 4D developers create rich Internet applications and harness the power of AJAX for both new and existing 4D applications.

At the heart of the 4D Web 2.0 Pack is the 4D AJAX Toolkit, an integrated AJAX framework that has been optimized to work in the 4D environment. The framework includes a CSS and JavaScript front-end as an application client, an AJAX object library, Data Services library and back-end Server Services.

Also included in the 4D Web 2.0 Pack is a plug-in called 4D Live Window. 4D Live Window delivers integrated programmable browser functionality into 4D applications. It allows developers to integrate 4D data and live Internet data into "mash-ups," and view a range of text, data, and media files, including JPEG, PDF, Flash, and QuickTime video.

"We're thrilled about the 4D Web 2.0 Pack," said Larry White, president of Pelican Engineering Corp. "By giving us tools that have already integrated 4D's application environment with AJAX, 4D lets us focus on finding new ways to integrate live data from all over the Internet and create truly cutting- edge business applications for our customers."

"Business users want more out of applications today," said Brendan Coveney, President and CEO of 4D, Inc. "They won't put up with stale data in cached web 1.0 applications, but they also want the lightweight, go-anywhere access that web 2.0 applications offer. We created the 4D Web 2.0 Pack to help our developers create these powerful integrated applications while maintaining the productivity the rich, powerful 4D development environment that they already know and love."
