Overview
WEBDEV allows you to create applications/sites that access HFSQL Client/Server databases.
The Client/Server mode allows you to host databases on a server (it can be different from the server where the site is deployed).
This operating mode:
  • increases data security,
  • allows you to easily manage the multi-user mode,
  • simplifies maintenance,
  • allows for remote connections (for back-office operations, for example).
Principle of Client/Server
WEBDEV allows you to:
  • create a site that uses an HFSQL Client/Server database.
  • modify a site that uses an HFSQL Classic database so that it can use an HFSQL Client/Server database.
Why switch a site to HFSQL Client/Server?
The main advantages of a site in HFSQL Client/Server mode compared to a site in HFSQL Classic mode are as follows:
  • HFSQL Client/Server is more secure (you can create a username and password and grant rights to the users).
  • No need to manage directories: all database files are in the same folder.
  • Client/Server databases can be used with an Internet connection.
  • Management of native multi-user mode: performance is optimized in multi-user mode.
