AJAX or Plugin

Re: Difference between AJAX and IE-Plug-in

Very briefly:
IE Plugin is a thick client, technically the same QV Desktop but running within IE.  Functionality is the same as in QV Desktop.  Only IE is supported.

AJAX is a thin client, browser-independent.  Macros (most of them) are not supported.

Re: Difference between AJAX and IE-Plug-in

Hi, It is a important decission select what you will use

if you think you will use macros you have to select IEplugin, but if you dont use macros you can use Full browser without problems.

IE plugin requieres installation local in all the machine,that will be used, full browser not, but some disegn controls will be run in the ieplugin and not in full browser

AJAXIE Client Plug in
1. No extra download and Installation required. Good for Chrome, firefox and safari1.IE plug-in is required
2. Direct tunneling, much faster over HTTPs2. Faster in selections, depend upon the configuration
3. Good for Mobile Device3. Feature is not available
4. Requires ports 4747 and 477e open in both client and the server both inbound and outbound4.This is done over HTTPs. So no port issue. 443 is usually open.
5.MS Office Integration is difficult5.Microsoft Office drag and drop only available in IE plug in
6.Macro and alert is not possible6.Alerts can only be created and triggered from Windows (IE Plug-in) versions of QlikView
7. The communication between a QlikView Server and a QlikView Windows client is encrypted. If, however, the AJAX client is used, the communication is not encrypted
