FoxPro all the way
Use the tools you already know: Write FoxPro code for your Web application logic and use the Visual FoxPro IDE to edit, run and debug your code. Set breakpoints, break on errors, and use your existing FoxPro business logic code.
HTML5 and Mobile Ready
HTML the way you want
Choose from different approaches to create HTML content in your apps. Choose from MVC style coding, pure HTML/Fox scripting, the ASP.NET style Web Control Framework or use raw code to generate HTML and HTTP output.
Create JSON REST Services
Easily create JSON REST services for building REST APIs or AJAX backends. Simply create classes that automatically convert JSON POST data to FoxPro objects and turn FoxPro return values and objects into JSON.
Use any HTML Editor
We ship a number of HTML templates for use with Visual Studio, but you can use any HTML editor that suits your needs. Choose an editor like the ultra-lightweight and free Visual Studio Code, Sublime Text, NotePad++ or any text editor to build your Web content.
Deploy with ease
Web Connection 6.0 includes automatically generated and customizable deployment scripts that can configure the Web server for you. One terminal command can configure your new Web site in seconds with a deployed server.
The Source is yours
Web Connection comes with complete source code for all the FoxPro components. There's no blackbox code - you can step through all of the framework and modify it as needed. Fix it, change it, own it - no built-in obsolence in this framework.
Remotely administer your server: Start and stop running servers, upload and hotswap new binaries, review log files and see server activity in real time. Servers auto-recover from crashes and you can run in single server mode for Admin tasks.
Don't take our Word for it: Try it out
There's so much more to Web Connection and the best way to find out about it all is to try it out for yourself. Web Connection is available in a fully functional shareware version that contains the full Web Connection framework, but doesn't include source code. With it you can build and test your Web applications to check out Web Connection's features and functionality. Get started today!
