Lycia II Beta Development package includes a Beta version of LyciaWeb Client. Unlike LyciaDesktop, LyciaWeb does not require any additional software to be installed on the client machine to launch the applications. It is a web client based on the HTML5 and Ajax technologies which makes your 4GL applications available for a larger number of users, since any system which utilizes a web browser can run your applications via LyciaWeb. The universality of the web client makes it possible to run applications on any portable device that supports a web browser.
This winter, we introduced XML interface for Lycia. This innovation makes data processing simpler and significantly decreases the developer's hand writing job. XML is a mark-up language for manage structured data in documents or data stores. This structured information usually contains both, the actual data headings which describe the meaning and role of the data. The mark-up language identifies the structure of the data store and the new Lycia 4GL extensions aid you in working with them.
In the past, 4GL applications could only interoperate directly (without the use of SOAP) with C sources. The latest enhancement to the Lycia 4GL development language is the integration of the Java Language Interoperation. This exciting new interface provides 4GL application vendors with the ability to implement diverse software development projects by inter-operating with Java programs and modules. Java is currently the most used development platform and it is therefore no surprise, that Lycia can now fully utilize Java classes to conform with this standardization.
The new generation of Lycia Graphical Clients come with a fully featured embedded Theme Designer to apply visual themes to match your personal tastes or organization's identity. This allows even for a novice to create fully fledged graphical themes for any 4gl application. It's usuage is fully graphical, simple and intuitive. No script or configuration syntax/statements must be learned or remembered.
LyciaBI is an enterprise Business Intelligence suite, supporting the development of innovative and flexible Business Intelligence solutions. Thanks to it‘s wide offering of analytical tools and to ist new and intuitive user interface, LyciaBI supports day-to-day and strategic business, both at the decision-making and operational levels.
Lycia WebServcices (Client and Provider) now support passing and returning of complex multidimensional data types.
In the past, WebServices did not support array handling in either direction. With the latest version, this limitation has been removed. This allows i.e. to utilize or provide a service to retrieve multi-dimensional lists of comlex data.
An example would be to send a web service request to a book ware house server to receive the...
Compare to traditional / classic 4GL languages, Querix allows the developer to have much greater control over event handling with the extended behaviour of the WHENEVER ERROR statement.

Hydra4GL allows you to create a front end application
launcher menu with pull down menus.
The menu structure, contents and actions can be defined using a tool
(MakeMenu) which stores the data in the database or dynamically within
your 4GL application code.
Hydra4GL allows you to define your own data types.
Variables can then be defined based on these data types. This means
that a desired data structure that does not already exist as a preset
data type can be created and reused, saving the developer defining it
repeatedly throughout the program.
Dynamic Combo-Listbox, fully controlled (i.e. populated) within the 4GL code and optional field validation (Combo behaviour).

Querix 4GL tutorial is a document developed to introduce Querix 4GL step by step in a way that is clear to both those who are experienced in programming, but want to learn 4GL and to those who have no programming experience. Unlike most of the programming language references which usually contain dry descriptions of statements, functions, and operators in alphabetic order, Querix 4GL tutorial introduces the information in logical blocks represented by chapters.
The main objective of all Querix products has always been compatibility and suitability for any development environment. In order to understand which features are of the outmost importance and should be implemented first, Querix decided to conduct a survey. In this survey the participants are free to select four languages or technologies, which functionality they would like to be included into Querix 4GL.
