Clarion Development

Rapid Application Development

RADventure is distributor of Clarion Software for the Benelux since 1988. Over 28 years we are building database oriented applications for several large companies like NedTrain, Dutch Railways (NS), Mercedes Benz, ESA-ESTEC. Our Clarion developers are using hundreds of templates that are developed by the RADventure Group so we are prototyping an application fast and of a high quality.

Whenever we ask our customer what’s so specific about the RADventure Clarion applications we always hear that our applications are very robust and user-friendly and they are adapted easily by users.

About Clarion

Clarion is a 4GL programming language and Integrated Development Environment used to program database applications. It is compatible with several database formats including all SQL, Oracle, ADO, and XML, ODBC and can output to HTML, XML, plaintext, and PDF, among others. As of the time of writing (2014), Clarion is on version 9.1.

Database access is simple to implement, and list box formatting can be handled with easy to use WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) formatting windows.

One of Clarion's many strong points is its use of "templates" which are used in conjunction with a code generator to produce much of the repetitive, yet time consuming code that is typically required when producing an application. An "embeditor" shows the developer the code that will be generated and embed points where the developer can enter his/her own hand-code in the context of the template generated code.
