Spice up your application with an object oriented design

Enter another dimension. A dimension where your database is used with an object-oriented approach. Where you don’t need to worry about its physical structure. A dimension where your code is cleaner, shorter and easier to understand.

The way you manage data will never be the same again. You’ve just crossed over into the ORDA world

Our users already have a crush on 4D v17!

4D v17 promises to deliver. And after completing our initial tests, everything looked great! This is 4D's biggest development since they introduced the client-server architecture in 1992. The stability, which continues to improve with each release, will probably allow us to go into the customer beta test with a ".0" version for the first time!

Wolfgang Grasberger CEO, TOPIX Business Software AG

I am impressed by what can be achieved with just a few lines of code, using ORDA and I admit that I've saved a lot of time compared to what I've already achieved in pure 4D. I am by no means blocked by the notion of pointers. I even managed to make "generics" using Form, objects or collections. The valuable information provided during the Summit is also available on the 4D Blog. It helps developers to take advantage of v17, which promises to be a revolution.

Patrick Emanuel Director, Quality Association

All of the new features in 4D v17 are attractive to system designers. ORDA will allow you to implement reasonable data structures. SDI and Write Pro: I immediately implemented and delivered the prototype to the customers. They are satisfied with our prototype. High value-added version. This version added increased value to 4D's integrated development and operational environment and is greatly appreciated. I am deeply moved. Using v17 at this time, I am looking forward to v18 as well.

Akihiko Aoki President, Sampoh Corporation

4D v17 has been a great bridge connecting our senior procedural-style programmers with the younger team members graduating with object skills. Cross-teaching between the team and the two styles has elevated the skill sets of both generations of programmers and we are creating much more complex applications today using the skills of both generations.
