|Description:||WEB application often contains CRUD (CREATE, UPDATE, READ, DELETE) forms. According these states (CREATE, READ...) render of fields of form depends on state. Form must for instance display value into HTML input for CREATE state, and write value for READ state.|
|Description:|| DbForms enables developers to build sophisticated web-based database driven applications in very short time and with very little efforts. DbForms - applications are built in a manner conceptually similar to RAD - database building tools such as Microsoft Access (for Windows-based applications) or Sybase PowerSite (for web-based applications).
Rapid Application Development (RAD) tools in general, allow a user to place database components and action elements on templates which then get executed at runtime. As you will soon discover, dbForms uses these same techniques for its own framework.
An important benefit of using DbForms is its openness to other systems. You may use DbForms in conjunction with common JSP-pages, Struts-based pages, etc. This means that you are free to use DbForms where it brings you the most benefits (dramatically reduce development efforts, etc.) and to use other techniques if you think that they offer a better solution. |
