You can create database application and Web application with Database Application Builder. It is easy and simple.
Create database application with Database Application Builder
What is database application?
Database applications let users interact with information that is
stored in databases. Databases provide structure for the information,
and allow it to be shared among different applications.
Database Application Builder provides support for relational database
applications. Relational databases organize information into tables,
which contain rows (records) and columns (fields). These tables can be
manipulated by simple operations known as the relational calculus.
When designing a database application, you must understand how the data
is structured. Based on that structure, you can then design a user
interface to display data to the user and allow the user to enter new
information or modify existing data.
How to connect to database server?
Database applications created by Database Application Builder use
ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) to access database information through
OLEDB. ADO is a Microsoft Standard. There is a broad range of ADO
drivers available for connecting to different database servers. ADO,
(Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects) is a set of COM objects that access
data through an OLE DB provider. ADO and OLE DB is supplied by
Microsoft and installed with Windows. An ADO provider represents one of
a number of types of access, from native OLE DB drivers to ODBC
drivers. These drivers must be installed on the client computer. OLE DB
drivers for various database systems are supplied by the database
vendor or by a third-party. If the application uses an SQL database,
such as Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle, the client software for that
database system must also be installed on the client computer. Client
software is supplied by the database vendor and installed from the
database systems CD (or disk).
Create database applications with Database Application Builder
Database Application Builder is a tool for creating database
applications without writing any code. And you don't have to be a
software programmer to do it. With its intuitive integrated development
environment (IDE) and drag-and-drop objects, it's quick to learn and
easy to use. It requires no programming knowledge.
Create database applications that can create, restructure, fetch data
from, update, and otherwise manipulate local (Paradox, dBASE, FoxPro,
and Access) and remote database servers (Oracle, Sybase, Informix,
Microsoft SQL server, and DB2). You can access a wide variety of
database servers, using ADO or ODBC to connect to different databases.
With Database Application Builder, you can create database applications
that analyze and summarize information from databases so that users can
draw conclusions from the data. The DBChart object lets you present
database information in a graphical format that enables users to
quickly grasp the import of database information. DBChart includes
chart series types: Line, Area, Point, Bar, Horizontal Bar and Pie.
With Database Application Builder, you can create database applications
that print database information. If you want to let your users print
database information from the datasets in your database application,
you can use Report objects, visual report design objects. You can use
Report objects to create a variety of reports, from simple banded
reports to more complex, highly customized reports. Users can also
export reports to PDF (.pdf), RichText (.rtf), Excel (.xls) and Text
Create Web application with Database Application Builder
What is Web application?
A web application is an application that is accessed over a network
such as the Internet or an intranet. The term may also mean a computer
software application that is hosted in a browser-controlled environment
or coded in a browser-supported language and reliant on a common web
browser to render the application executable.
Why Web applications?
Web applications are popular due to the ubiquity of web browsers, and
the convenience of using a web browser as a client, sometimes called a
thin client. The ability to update and maintain web applications
without distributing and installing software on potentially thousands
of client computers is a key reason for their popularity, as is the
inherent support for cross-platform compatibility.
How to create Web applications with Database Application Builder?
With Database Application Builder you can create standalone Web
applications exactly the same way you would create normal database
applications. It is a revolutionary new way to create web-based
applications. The standalone Web application is a web server that run
without dependencies from any other web server (IIS or Apache).
Database Application Builder Features
- Create desktop applications, database
applications and Web applications without writing any code. No
programming experience is required.
- Connect to database servers. Create
application that can create, restructure, fetch data from, update, and
otherwise manipulate local (Paradox, dBASE, FoxPro, and Access) and
remote database servers (Oracle, Sybase, Informix, Microsoft SQL
server, and DB2). You can access a wide variety of database servers,
using ADO or ODBC to connect to different databases.
- Connect directly to Microsoft Jet OLE Database (Access) database files.
- Create database tables.
- Provides a set of data-aware objects that
represent data from fields in a database record, and, if the dataset
allows it, enable users to edit that data and post changes back to the
database. By placing data objects onto the forms in your database
application, you can build your database application's user interface
(UI) so that information is visible and accessible to users.
- You can choose between objects that are
designed to display and edit plain text, objects that work with
formatted text, objects for graphics, multimedia elements, and so on.
- You can display information from a single
record on the screen, or list the information from multiple records
using a grid (DBGrid).
- You can let users navigate through the records
of datasets and add or edit data. You may want to add your own objects
or mechanisms to navigate and edit, or you may want to use a built-in
object such as a DBNavigator.
- Create master/detail relationships. DBTable
datasets can be linked into master/detail relationships. When you set
up a master/detail relationship, you link two datasets so that all the
records of one (the detail) always correspond to the single current
record in the other (the master).
- Define lookup fields. You can define lookup
fields for dataset object, DBQuery or DBTable. A lookup field is a
read-only field that displays values based on search criteria you
specify. In its simplest form, a lookup field is passed the name of an
existing field to search on, a field value to search for, and a
different field in a lookup dataset whose value it should display. For
example, consider a mail-order application that enables an operator to
use a lookup field to determine automatically the city and state that
correspond to the zip code a customer provides. The column to search on
might be called ZipTable.Zip, the value to search for is the customer's
zip code as entered in Order.CustZip, and the values to return would be
those for the ZipTable.City and ZipTable.State columns of the record
where the value of ZipTable.Zip matches the current value in the
- Define calculated fields. You can define
calculated fields for dataset object, DBQuery or DBTable. A calculated
field displays values calculated at runtime. For example, you might
create a float field that displays values calculated from other fields.
- Analyze and summarize information from
databases so that users can draw conclusions from the data. The DBChart
object lets you present database information in a graphical format that
enables users to quickly grasp the import of database information.
DBChart includes chart series types: Line, Area, Point, Bar, Horizontal
Bar and Pie.
- Print database information. If you want to let
your users print database information from the datasets in your
application, you can use Report objects, visual report design objects.
You can use Report objects to create a variety of reports, from simple
banded reports to more complex, highly customized reports.
- Export report to PDF (.pdf), RichText (.rtf), Excel (.xls), Text (.txt) files.
- You can build standalone Web applications for
intranet (for your local net work) exactly the same way you would build
normal database applications. It is a revolutionary new way to create
