Hello,
Webster+ seems to be a good toolkit to develop full cloud application using PxPlus.
What is the licence policy ? If we have 80 PxPlus licence, is 80 the maximum number of surfer able to run pxplus program simultaneously ?
Regards

If you have an 80 user Web license then up to 80 simultaneous host tasks can be servicing your web site.  Since these tasks only exist for the fractions of a second that most requests require, your 80 user license would likely support hundreds of users on your web site.

Webster uses a lot of HTML 5 local processing to validate and process the application UI locally. Things like resizing, changing folders, tabbing, input validation is handled locally.  List box and grid sorting and column sizing along with grid row removal and changing row orders is also done locally.

It also provides a framework for web development with user management, security, layout, along with access to many Nomads components.

Great release!  How many users (using Webster+) for example a 2-3 license support comfortably?   Is this similar to the pvxplus web server task handler in terms of capability?  I'd imagine the pvxweb server is slightly more responsive but I am interested.  Thanks.

Part of what governs what 2-3 users will handle depends on your code and the application design.  For example a typical application I would anticipate you can comfortably handle 5 live users per licensed user.

Generally an interaction between the browser and host will take less than 1 second and also typically the panels won't actually need a host interaction more than once every 5-10 seconds.  This will vary between screens, but most inputs won't need host involvement so as data is being entered browsed, etc nothing is actually running on the host.

Of course some tasks might take longer but the requests are spread out between tasks so performance remains pretty consistent.
