Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"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
"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."
