What is 4D for Mac

The 4D product line offers a full range of products that can be used individually as components, or together as a fully integrated, Web and Web service enabled database development solution. Every 4D product includes a cross-platform RDBMS and integrated Web development and data publishing tool.

From the enterprise/IT world to custom development to end-user solutions, the 4D family of tools addresses the needs of any business or organization.

What's new in 4D

Version 18.5.0:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.12 or later

The Form editor. Enhanced to ease your work:

New enhancements per your requests:

  • Preview the final CSS rendering in the form editor without running your dialog. Thanks to this feature, you not only save time and effort, but you might actually enjoy the process!
  • Speaking of saving time, macros are available in the form editor to help you get more done in less time, providing you with an ideal way to reduce time spent on repetitive tasks.
4D View Pro. A multilingual product:

Increase your customer base with Six languages:

  • Considering how important it is for both you and your customers to have 4D View Pro spreadsheets in your native language, 4D now provides a set of six supported languages! In addition to English, we’ve added support for French, German, Japanese, Spanish, and Portuguese!
4D for iOS. There's always something new:

Speed and enhanced UX are the order of the day:

  • Inform salespeople about a new quote or insurance agents about a new case thanks to deep linking that allows, with a single click, to directly open the app and display the appropriate record.
  • Plus, the data synchronization process has been optimized to give you up to 25 times faster data sync! This means thousands of records can be pulled instantaneously!
4D language and beyond. Better with every release:

A set of features for mighty 4D applications:

  • Write understandable, more readable code thanks to a coder-friendly syntax for class functions and methods and build usable and intuitive interfaces as a result of the enhancements we've made to help implement type-ahead!
  • And that's not all! If you need to retrieve a list of messages based on criteria such as all emails from a specific person within the last 4 weeks, then a mail feature is available to help you do so.
  • As for ORDA, you can define the scope and execution contexts for functions, which not only helps with client/server optimization but also provides an additional level of security to your code. In addition, shareable entity selections are here for your future applications where performance and scalability are a must!
4D Write Pro. Subtle improvements, big impact:

Build A UI that meets your requirements:

  • With many UI enhancements, developers are now able to subtly fine-tune their documents. For starters, if you're using 4D Write Pro to format your emails, you can display just the desired widget pages to simplify the interface and make the user’s work easier.
  • And if you have documents from various sources and numbers are not correctly formatted, we've got a solution for that too! You can specify the correct setting for each document with the option that fits your needs.
  • One last thing, the insertion of soft-hyphens has been simplified by providing new standard actions, as well as new buttons in the 4D Write Pro Interface widgets (both the toolbar widget and sidebar widgets).

Interesting that for such a mature and well established product, the last review is about a decade old!

Regarding 2004.4 and 10.4.8 on Intel: BE CERTAIN you run the "Precision Patch" or you will have serious rounding errors. ALSO note that 4D's patch logic is flawed and there is at least one case where the patch will not install properly-leaving you thinking it installed. Finally, note that apparently 4D will not have a universal binary for approx. a year.

4D 2004 rocks. You can have a true client/server database up and running in a day. And with a little more effort, you can give it exactly the interface you want. Even a web interface. The database engine is rock-solid. You're not going to lose any data here. It also includes great automated backup features and a separate repair utility that can usually resurrect your data if it gets clobbered by system or hardware glitches. Check out www.Mere-Mortal-Software.com for an example of a shareware product I created with 4D 2003.

4D 2004 is a good product ... but with now only 200 project méthods in standard edition (299 Euro), the good name should be "4D Test Edition" and not "4D standard Edition" !!!

4D is an awesome product. The company that creates/distributes it is not. The upgrade costs are very high. 4D advertises this product as an 'internet' database, however, you have to pay an additional $899 in order to use the product on the internet. Try finding that info easily at the 4D web site.

On the first view this database has only pro points. But on the other hands are the upgrade licences. If you have, for instance, 15 users using a 4D server and you HAVE TO upgrade to a new version because 4D stops working on the previous version, and does not support Mac OS X, you have to pay like $9.000-$12.000 to JUST UPGRADE the server - probably without getting any more features you could use.

4D is the best mid-range database on the market. It's unbelievable. If you're the IT Manager of an SME business, this is the database to use.

4D is a fantastic product. If you can imagine it, you can most likely do it with 4D. It is fast to develop with, and has an extrememly helpful developer community.
