Quick Disclaimer

There will be more info on this site soon. ie: Documentation on how to utilize the components and/or plugins and all of their features. Just wanted to get the demos I presented today (3/13/2019) up on the site.

The mdWebSocket component is included in the downloads of the following 3 databases. This component will always be free to download but will be limited to only 3 concurrent web socket connections per server. License price and procedure will follow soon!

The mdWebSocket component does not touch any data or affect the host database in any tangible way. If you install the component, it will give you some component methods and expect some “Hook” project methods that are shared between “Host and Components.” (You can see 4 hook project methods in the demo databases below.) If you remove the component from a database, you just lose the functionality and nothing is changed in the host database.

Starting today 3/13/2019 is the public beta version that anyone can try and please give me feedback on how it works. If you are having trouble, let me know. I am passionate about this and would love to help.
