4D – No Wires Attached

ACI US, Inc., publishers of the 4th Dimension (4D) RAD/RDBMS Environment,
announced today their support for the latest in Wireless Markup Language
(WML) technology with the release of 4D v6.5.3. The addition of WML to 4D
will give developers the ability to create web sites that can be accessed
from anywhere at anytime using cellular phones and personal digital
assistants. Important and personal information, such as email, calendars,
and corporate databases are just a dial tone away.

“The release of 4D v6.5.3 will give birth to a new era in 4D
communications,” shares Brendan Coveney, President ACI US. “We recognize
that developers need to be able to offer clients quick and easy access to
their databases which is why we are including WML in 4D v6.5.3.”

4D v6.5.3 will allow dynamic data to be inserted into WML pages using 4DVAR
and 4DACTION tags. In addition, 4D v6.5.3 can also generate WML pages.

WML is an emerging standard used to transform the text portion of a web
page into a form that can be viewed via wireless technology, such as
cellular phones and personal digital assistants.

4D v6.5.3 is a free update for all current 4D v6.5 owners. The update can
be downloaded from the ACI US web site:
