Having worked in the IT with C++ and PHP, I'm currently using 4D for almost one year now. I choose 4D because I needed something to develop a back office application on Mac OS X and this software seemed to be a nice solution do rapidly what I needed to do.

Now, having a good expertise with 4D I think I can made an educated comment about it : this is the worst piece of software I've seen. Ever. I'm sorry to tell that, but I'm sincere.

Working with 4D bring you back 20 years in the past.

I believe that if you have absolutely no experience in programming and if you start with 4D you would perhaps tell : "wow, I can do amazing stuff with 4D!". Yeah, if you never saw a car and if someone gives you a good ole East German "Traban", the people's car, you will find it an amazing experience wile learning to drive on it.

If later you try a modern, high standard BMW car, you will probably wonder how one can even drive that piece c*** named "Traban".

With 4D it's the same :-)

A software version of the Traban ...

TrabanT.. ;)
And regarding 4D.. "to build custom applications that look great". Great? GREAT? 4D produces the worst looking database clients I know of.


So what do you think is a better product than 4D????

What database on Mac OS X is better????

Filemaker Pro - too limited, too slow.

Provue Panorama 6 - too quirky, difficult to do relations and track them, 20 y.o. interface.

There aren't many other choices in Mac OS X where you don't have to do heavy-duty programming.

4D is a fantastic product- a lot more powerful than Filemaker.
A lot of the new functionality makes it great for working with SQL and it isn't a bad backend for ExtJS or Flex either.
