An RPGer's Adventures in Webland
At System i Developer we like to practice what we preach. The company web site is designed for and is served from a System i. An application is used to manage conference information which, in turn, is used to generate web pages. There are also interactive web pages that communicate directly with RPG programs (e.g. selecting your session grid and repeat sessions).
This session shows you how the Summit web site was built and how the following items played a key part in the development of the web site:
• Design Decisions
• Tools Used - WDSC, Navigator, Zend Studio
• Creating the Database using DDL (SQL)
• Externalizing the Database
• The public and the private web sites
• Maintaining information (using CGIDEV2)
• Generating Static Web Pages
• Using and tuning embedded SQL
• Using AJAX
