Thin@ is a professional Smart Client Solution for Clarion which transforms Clarion applications into SaaS Business Internet Applications.
Thin@ 3.0 Asteria has been released and is available for purchase and download.
Asteria or star-stone is a name applied to varieties of ruby and sapphire which exibit a luminous star when cut. Also, in Greek mythology, Asteria („of the stars“) was a titan goddess of the oracles and prophecies of night that transformed herself into the quail island of Delos. It is also the name given to the upcoming major release of Thin@.
When applied to a Clarion application, Asteria can perform a few powerful transformations that enhance the application in several aspects.
Other powerful transformations include automatically changing the user interface from a standard Clarion MDI application to an MS Outlook-looking application and/or automatically changing the application skin to make it web/mobile/custom-looking.
The deployment of the application is simplified and all the end-user has to do is open the browser, enter the URL of the application and the application appears. No installation.
The server can hold up to 300 concurrent connections by default.
The first Thin@ Case Studies ClarionLive! webinar featured Ton Van Den Broek, Russ Eggen and Andy Karzmacky from ClarionTools!
Ton and Russ demoed their Thin@ applications in production and after that Andy K. and Daniel showed ClarionTools demo apps running with Thin@ in the GoDaddy Cloud.
You can download the webinar recording.
Note: We had some technical difficulties during the Thin@-ClarionTools support section of the webinar, which were solved after the webinar. This is a short description of the problems and their cause:
1st Issue: Printing in the Thin@-ClarionTools demo app did not work as expected. Cause: Too many WMF files have been generated in the temp folder on the server. Solution: Clearing out the temp files and turning on the Auto-Cleanup feature solved the problem.
2nd Issue: A window in the Thin@-ClarionTool app did not appear as expected. Cause: Window position saving bug in Clarion that puts the window off the display. Solution: Turning off saving of the window position in Clarion.
