LinuxPR: Server Pages For Xbase Arrives;� Linux and Win32 Beta Testers Invited

Oct 30, 2000, 18:55 (1 Talkback[s])

"Bringing the increasingly popular "server pages" development model to Xbase developers, PlugSys International today announced the beta test of its new Max Server Pages (MSP) product. Using classic Xbase commands and functions, developers can quickly access data stored in DBF files or ODBC databases and blend the results with HTML and Javascript."

"The web development community has seen PHP, Java Server Pages and Microsoft's Active Server Pages," said Marc Schnapp, PlugSys' Product Manager. "But nothing matches the naturalness of Xbase data access and navigation. Put a SQL database on the back end and nothing could be simpler. The SQL engine handles the rough stuff, the code is clean, concise and simple. It's almost as if Xbase was invented just for web development."

"Max Server Pages development focuses on creation of HTML templates with embedded Xbase control structures, expressions, commands and functions. "We chose a commonly accepted embedding model so that our customers could use popular web tools like HomeSite and Dreamweaver," said Claudio Lavacca, PlugSys' Chief Software Architect. "Unlike other "server pages" type engines, MSP Professional even allows developers to precompile source code for even faster loading libraries."
