SQL is the bread-and-butter language of relational databases. Although the language has been standardized (SQL-92 and SQL:99), virtually no vendor's implementation strictly conforms to the standards. Most database products use their own syntax (in joins, for example) and, more important, implement several language extensions. For the developer it's necessary to know about product-specific extensions in order to leverage the database optimally. This is true whatever the nature of the application - Web or client/server. In addition, for the Web programmer knowledge of these extensions can help shift a lot of the processing load off the Web/application server to the database where it belongs (see Ben Forta's comments on this in "Take Your Database Out of Retirement," CFDJ, Vol. 1, issue 3). In this article we present some features of Oracle SQL that we've found useful... (more)

Some Thoughts on The Design of CF Data Input Applications

ColdFusion is a powerful addition to the toolbox of Internet application developers. However, it's only one of several used in constructing a complete application. Others include relational databases with their procedural extensions, client- and server-side Java and JavaScript, HTML, and related technologies such as CSS. Web developers need to have a good technical mastery of each of these tools, much of which can be learned from books and courses. What's harder to learn is the art of integrating these technologies - the hows and wheres of implementing application functionality.... (more)

A ColdFusion Based Oracle Database Monitor

ColdFusion offers developers an easy way to Web-enable client/server applications. This fact has been noted and written about quite often in this journal (see, for instance, Jerry Bradenbaugh's article in the January 1999 issue of CFDJ [Vol.1, Issue 1]). Putting an application on the Web saves you the pain of client-side software installation and maintenance. Besides, the application then becomes truly portable, as it can be accessed from any browser anywhere in the world (at least in theory). There are several excellent client-server database administration (DBA) tools availabl... (more)
