Builder sample database application, the first database-driven Keynote
presentation generating application on Mac(R) OS X. Designed as an example
of how to integrate with Keynote to build dynamic presentations, 4D Keynote
Builder creates a Keynote presentation based on information stored in a 4th
Dimension 2003 database. 4D Keynote Builder available today uses real
estate data and can be modified to addresses any number of markets. 4D

“4th Dimension 2003 is an extremely rapid development environment and
exceptional for application integration,” said Brendan Coveney, president
and CEO of 4D, Inc. “When Steve Jobs first showed Keynote, he pointed out
its dynamic presentation generation capabilities when integrated with a
database and issued a challenge to database developers. We are the first
database vendor to answer that call with a sample application which can be
easily modified by our community of developers for their unique solutions.”
