Civica Local Government Solutions initially chose Four Js as a development and deployment platform to migrate a charcter based application to the Windows graphical desktop environment. This choice was later justified by the introduction of the Four Js Open Database Interface (ODI). The database independence provided by the ODI offered new choices for customers with regard to database platform.
