Alpha Five Update Builds Better Apps
Alpha Five Version 6 gives companies a great alternative for a workgroup-based database application.While it is certainly easy to just accept and run the database application that is sitting on most Windows-based PCs, Alpha Softwares Alpha Five Version 6 gives companies a great alternative for a workgroup-based database application. Version 6 of Alpha Five began shipping at the end of last month for $1,499 for a five-user license. I liked the way this new version extends programming capabilities for building more complex, automated applications using Xbasic, Active Scripting and ActiveX.
Its also easier to share these applications over the Web via the optional new $699 Alpha Web application server. With the application server added, this version is more akin to FileMakers FileMaker 7 and Server 7only more extensible.
