A short technical description of WebDNA
WebDNA is a scripting language for creating dynamic web sites. WebDNA code is interwoven into the HTML files on your server and allows full control over all what the server returns to the browser.
Unlike static Web sites where HTML pages are designed and accessed directly, Web pages accessed from a WebDNA-driven site are interpreted by WebDNA on the server before being sent to the browser. WebDNA does not require any client-side applications or web browsers with special capabilities or plugins.
WebDNA adds incredible power to any Web site! WebDNA's syntax and functionality lie between HTML and SQL. At the HTML end, WebDNA shows its ease of use with its simple text markup tags that will be intuitive to anyone with basic HTML knowledge.
At the SQL end, WebDNA can be used to construct sophisticated database searches resulting in formatted output. Note: WebDNA does not need a SQL server; it contains native powerful database features. But it has the ability to connect directly to other SQL servers (or through an ODBC interface) if desired.
Additional WebDNA benefits include:
- Enhancement to existing web sites by readily integrating other HTML-compatible languages.
- Requires 50% or less coding than the other leading languages, making it faster to code and easy to maintain.
- Utilization of easy-to-learn programming concepts similar to Visual Basic and C/C .
By enhancing the best aspects of multiple technologies, WebDNA gives webmasters greater freedom to design dynamic and automated Web sites.
