Server Side Includes (SSI) are a category of simple server-side scripting languages used almost exclusively for the web. Among the most popular of these are PHP, Java, and ASP. As their name implies, their primary use is including the contents of one file into another one dynamically when the latter is served by a web server.



Active Server Page (ASP) Tutorial

Introduced in 1996, Active Server Pages (ASP) are just like normal x/html pages except they are processed on the server before being sent to the client's machine. ASP itself is not a programming language, but a platform on which any scripting language that your web-server understands can run. The most popular languages used with ASP are VBScript (a subset of Visual Basic), JScript (Microsoft's version of JavaScript) and Perl Script. This tutorial only covers VBScript.

Ajax: A New Approach to Web Applications

If anything about current interaction design can be called 'glamorous,' it’s creating Web applications. After all, when was the last time you heard someone rave about the interaction design of a product that wasn’t on the Web? (Okay, besides the iPod.) All the cool, innovative new projects are online.

Apache HTTP Status Codes

Those familiar with Apache will be used to the luxury of being able to specify redirects on the fly, without having to write programs to catch errors, and ensure they return the correct HTTP status codes. Being new to Apache, I was amazed at just how easy it is. The following provides an overview of the Apache Redirect directive.

ASP Tutorial

Unlike JavaScript the use of ASP doesn't depend on someone's browser supporting it) is very difficult to learn, and this has come from the early languages like Perl, which are difficult to write and even more difficult to debug. Over the past few years two new languages have emerged, PHP and ASP. These are easy enough for even the novice webmaser to learn.

ASP, PHP, Java, JavaScript, XML, ActiveX, SQL... Mais de Quoi Parle T-on Vraiment?   (members only)

Ces termes affreux sont très à la mode dans le milieu du développement de solutions/sites Internet ou Intranet. On ne peut pas discuter 2 minutes avec un développeur sans qu'il en prononce un ou deux (voire tous si il est dans la catégorie 'Développeur souffrant de gros problèmes de communication avec les non-développeurs' !). Pour dire la vérité, il est même parfois difficile de s'y retrouver quand on est de la partie... C'est pour cela que nous allons essayer ici de définir simplement ces termes et de les regrouper par grandes familles. Ces termes caractérisent les différents langages que l'on peut utiliser pour le développement d'applications web. Ils se séparent en deux grandes familles selon que les scripts (programmes) s'exécutent sur le serveur ou sur le client.

Build a PHP Switcher

ALA's open source style sheet switchers are swell so long as your visitors use compliant browsers and have JavaScript turned on. But what if they don’t? New ALA author Chris Clark tells how to build a cross-browser, backward-compatible, forward-compatible, standards-compliant style sheet switcher in just five lines of code.

Build Web apps with ThinWire and Java code, Part 2: Using the SplitLayout Class

With ThinWire, an open-source development framework, you can build Web applications that look and feel like desktop applications. In this five-part series, you'll learn how to develop rich Web applications using ThinWire and Java. In Part 2, you learn to use the SplitLayout class in conjunction with your own layout management code to dynamically change the layout of a ThinWire GUI based on the current size of the Web browser window.

Build Your Own Social Home!

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is what all the hip applications are serving up these days with their API’s as an alternative to XML. The cool part about JSON is that you don’t need to parse it in the same way you do XML. That data you get from a JSON call comes back as an object all ready-to-rock and let you do stuff with it. So here's the jQuery code to pull in and append all data from Flickr, Twitter, and Scrnshots all onto one page.

Connecting Macromedia Flash and PHP

Many web developers rely heavily on a popular combination of open source software to develop and deploy their websites and applications. This combination is often known as LAMP—an acronym for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. In this article, you will use a LAMP environment to create a PHP-based Rich Internet Application.

Creating a Web Service with Web Matrix

The Web Matrix project appears to have served as a test bed in the development of ASP.NET. This freebie attracted a lot of attention since it did not require an installation of IIS. It had its own http server whenever needed. Of course, one could use it also in the presence of an installed IIS. This tutorial is about creating a web service on Web Matrix and testing the service on the built in mini web server, as well as testing a second example on the IIS 5.1 on the local machine.

Creating More Using Less Effort with Ruby on Rails

The “why” of Ruby on Rails comes down to productivity, says Michael Slater. Web applications that share three characteristics—they’re database-driven, they’re new, and they have needs not well met by a typical CMS—can be built much more quickly with Ruby on Rails than with PHP, .NET, or Java, once the investment required to learn Rails has been made. Does your web app fall within the RoR “sweet spot?”

Crossing Borders: Continuations, Web Development, and Java Programming

This article explores continuations, the technique behind frameworks like Smalltalk's Seaside. Continuation servers make it much easier to build Web applications by offering a stateful programming model without giving up the scalability inherent in statelessness.

Developing with Apache Derby -- Hitting the Trifecta

Along with creating a database schema and populating tables with data, being able to selectively modify data is one of the most important skills necessary for a database developer. This article teaches you how to selectively delete or update data in an existing table and how to modify the structure of an existing table. To perform data modifications on a more complex database schema, you'll learn about embedded subqueries, both scalar and table, with data update and data insert operations. You'll also find out how to delete and modify data in complex schemas using the Apache Derby database.
