This Technical Note analyzes the 4D Web Server's performance when using different methods to serve static documents. The sample database included uses 4D's Web Server to serve content without code and uses various tactics within the On Web Connection database method to serve the same pages via 4D code. The performance testing is done using third party software and all results are included in the Technical Note. The goal of this document is not to say which method of serving content is functionally best, as there are more considerations at play than just performance when serving static content. Rather, the goal is to give 4D developers information on how to move their databases to the web and achieve the fastest performance.

This Tech Note is especially helpful if you are able to serve some of your documents from the root web folder without going through On Web Connection. The analysis in this Tech Note shows that is much faster in some situations.
