Stored methods were introduced with 4D v6. A stored method is a method that executes on 4D Server rather than on the client. There are two ways that this can improve performance:


  • The server is usually the most powerful computer on the network.
  • Since the procedure is running on the server there is no network traffic. Network traffic is always slower than accessing the local hard drive.
