ActiveVFP 6.03 is essentially the same as ActiveVFP 5.53 but adds the following features:
1.)Scriptmapping capability such as http://localhost/demo/sessionlist.avfp instead of http://localhost/demo/default.aspx?action=sessionlist. You can also use your own custom scriptmap instead of .avfp (simply edit Web.Config)
2.)AVFP Scripts are moved front and center to the root application directory.
3.)ASP.NET is still used but an HTTPhandler in the Integrated Pipeline mode is used instead of default.aspx.
4.)Extensionless URLs/MVC/RESTful API
5.)Performance should see a boost as well.

Reviews for this release

ActiveVFP 6.03 is already a brilliant and robust solution to preserve/unleash the power of Foxpro for future use. Really useful. Give it 4 stars. Needs more community effort to earn 5 stars. (Come on guys!)

I'm very impressed with the capabilities of ActiveVFP.

This is just a fantastic product. I was able to have it up and running on my server in no time. My data driven web site is just so fast sometimes I just can't believe how fast I get the server response. It's just so great to be able to develop VFP applications with a modern web-based client interface.

Restful part of the program is full of bugs. Unless I solve this and post that I've gotten through it, do not bother.

Finally, with this web tool foxpro is on equal footing with PHP and .NET. No more excuses - get out there and create great web sites/applications with foxpro and activevfp!!

This is a first rate way of using FoxPro skills to place a good looking secure website on the net. The use of multi-threading is nothing short of ingenious. Imagine, the power of the best db development platform delivered to the internet. Talk about speed! WOW! Congrats on the superb application, Claude. Grady
