Base One's sample web
how easily you can build and maintain secure,
browser-based database applications. It demonstrates
the programming behind a
Thin Client site whose users can create
their own custom reports, save them, share them with others in their user
group, produce high-quality printouts, and export them to Excel and
Word. The sample comes with the Base
One Internet Server (BIS), which is included in the Base
One Foundation Component Library (BFC).
The sample web site contains useful, general-purpose code showing, for example:
Because the sample web site is derived from Base One's Foundation
Application, it enables you to administer the site's database servers and users
securely and easily across the Internet, without programming. Simple
scripts (command files) for database creation and loading are supplied.
With the Foundation Application, an administrator can add and delete web
site users and change their security privileges. An administrator can
force web users to log off, restrict logons, and broadcast warnings and
other messages, for example, in preparation for system maintenance, data
loading or shutdown.
The sample web site also demonstrates
a practical and enforceable method for charging a fee for each User ID,
even if the number of users becomes very large. Session validation
ensures that only
one user logs on at a time with a given User ID.
