The following is a list of some of the features of FoxWeb. For a full description of
these features and to find out what's new
in the latest version refer to the FoxWeb Documentation.
Code in your familiar FoxPro language. There is no need to learn Visual Basic or a third
party scripting language.
FoxWeb provides maximum flexibility by allowing the programmer to mix
server-side script code and HTML in a single FWX script. Older versions of FoxWeb
provided the MergeTxt function, which facilitated the inclusion of expressions within
HTML templates. The new FWX functionality is significantly more powerful than the old
merge templates, because it enables the use of structured programming -- not just
FoxWeb supports several password and domain-based authentication schemes to keep
unauthorized users away from your data and programs. The Auth object can be used to
easily control access to individual FoxWeb scripts.
Blazingly fast data access:
FoxWeb uses Visual FoxPro's native data access engine, which blows away the competition
when it comes to accessing local data. FoxWeb will even outperform SQL based server
products in most cases. Other Web data access solutions use ODBC, which is much slower
Being the first Web application development environment for FoxPro, and having been
tested on hundreds of servers word-wide since 1994, FoxWeb has evolved into an extremely
stable product that will function under the most adverse conditions. FoxWeb's unique
Channel Monitor technology ensures that your mission-critical application will
stay up even if your programs contain bugs that would cause other products to crash.
Full error logging:
All errors caused by FoxWeb scripts are logged in a table for debugging purposes. They
can be viewed using the FoxWeb Error Log Viewer.
Return Content to the Browser During Execution:
FoxWeb supports sending content to the browser during script execution. This feature can
improve the perceived execution speed of your scripts, by presenting partial output to
the user. This feature can be overridden on a script-by-script basis using
the FoxWeb API.
International character support:
FoxWeb supports accented and other international characters found at the upper part of
the ASCII table.
Compatible with all web servers:
FoxWeb is not dependent on proprietary protocols and can work with any Windows
based CGI or ISAPI server. This means that if in the future you wish to switch to
a different server your programs will run without modification.
FoxWeb Control Center provides easy administration:
The powerful FoxWeb Control Center provides easy access to all administrative functions
of FoxWeb, including configuration,
server control, and examination of the Error Log.
Easier Configuration of Virtual Servers:
FoxWeb supports separate program roots and global procedures for each virtual server,
making it a snap to configure on Web servers that host multiple sites. This feature is
particularly useful for ISPs wishing to provide FoxWeb services.
Multiple scripts files can be run at the same time by opening multiple FoxWeb channels.
