Hi Barry,

That looks really good.

Will Visual FoxPro Server Pages also run on MACs ? I notice there is no mention of Mac in the article.

If not can I develop apps that can use the cloud server from a MAC ?

Lianja Cloud Server will initially be available for Windows and Linux. We *may* make it available on the Mac, but its more of a client operating system.

Hi Barry,

I understand that the cloud server itself will be installed on a windows of Linux box, but will apps running on a MAC be able to connect to it to get the data etc? or have I understood how this work wrongly.

I understand it to be a server installed on a box somewhere that the apps connect to via the internet connection so all the data is stored off of the machine running the app.

Absolutely. Visual FoxPro server pages and JavaScript Server Pages can be used in WebViews.

So when using the cloud server does the user have to install anything on the computer, or do they just fire up a browser and the apps from the cloud server itself run in the browser itself, so everything is installed on the cloud server ?

Just the browser (except for phonegap apps for mobile devices).

Thanks Hank.

As usual I got it wrong. I thought it just served up the data via the cloud.

So my apps can run on clients MACS hit my a windows or preferably a Linux box with my server installed. Brilliant.

To Say I am excited about this would be a huge understatement.
