Whether you need to develop an application for desktop, web or mobile touch, you have options with DataFlex. The framework offers powerful structures that allow you to separate your business logic from the presentation layer, making it easier and less costly to switch between desktop and web applications.
The dataflex programmer environment – Visual DataFlex* revision 14.1 – is designed for optimal design and productivity with a language and a complete business application framework that delivers a robust set of resources including database connectivity, a business rule repository and data-aware user interface controls. The language has a natural syntax that is easy to learn and allows developers to build web, mobile and Windows applications faster than many other solutions. Business rules are centrally managed in “Data Dictionaries,” which define table relationships, validate database operations and enforce user interface consistency across all devices. Changes to a single data dictionary are automatically applied to all web, mobile and Windows applications.
