One of the most interesting features delivered with 4D v18 was remote datastores. They opened a whole world of possibilities and in this blog post we’ll show you a practical use case:
A healthcare application provides permanent access to local data containing only the patients’ last tests. All of the history data is hosted on a REST server.
Because not all of the employees are allowed to access historical data, there is an authentication system. Of course, the two data sources are managed with the same client code. Whether the remote database is exposed or not on the REST server, the local data is always accessible.
