WinDev to WebDev

Startbeitrag von Ian Cordingley am 10.07.2013 16:08

Hi Folks I am once again reviewing WinDev as a replacement for our current development environments. I did so some time back but decided to stick with our current models.

However I'd like to trial some development in Express and since I need to actually deploy the app as a web interface I was wondering how difficult it is to take a WinDev app and port it to WebDev - including the forms etc.

For example Servoy is supposed to be same source code for both desktop and web apps but its not really as simple as that and many features are not cross compatible.

Feedback would be appreciated!

Hi Ian

it's not easy... You can reuse some code (backoffice logic, classes, etc) but the whole UI is completely different (the logic of the UI HAS to be, it's on the web) and has to be rebuilt from scratch...

Just a very simple thing: most windows application use MODAL windows... And therefore the whole application workflow is "MODALly"... There is no such thing as modal windows on the web (only pale approximations, at a very small level)...

Best regards

To my mind, PageDisplayDialogue() allows a good approximation of modal windows.
I think it's a main asset for WB.

Hi Arnaud

it is a very "shallow" approximation... First, in Windev, you'll see often a window opening a window opening a window opning a window (to create sublevel of records, by example), all of them modal... You can't do that with pageDisplayDialog

Furthermore, PageDisplayDialog is available ONLY in webdev classic mode, NOT in AWP... So for an intranet, yes, for a big WWW site, nope...

And finally, trying to emulate a windows application behavior on the web is most of the time an error, as web users are used to and waiting for web behavior...

Best regards
