Enhanced protection

Developers who rely on the DataFlex WebApp Server’s Security, Performance, Load Balancing and Fail-over protection capabilities will also appreciate the new SPLF Encryption delivered in this latest release. DataFlex 2024’s WebApp Server now encrypts the connection between the SPLF master and the application nodes. An encryption token can be configured per node to improve the strength of the encryption.

Improved Grid Layouts

Designing grid layouts is also improved in DataFlex 2024 with the enhanced Web Designer in the Studio. A new popup for editing grid rows and columns is included which also supports inserting and removing rows / columns. The context menu on the designer now has an option to convert from the flow layout to the grid layout.
