Web Database Development: Implications for Academic Publishing.
Fernekes, Bob
This paper discusses the preliminary planning, design, and development of a pilot project to create an Internet accessible database and search tool for locating and distributing company data and scholarly work. Team members established four project objectives: (1) to develop a Web accessible database and decision tool that creates Web pages on the fly; (2) to design an easy-to-use, forms-based input system for creating and updating entries; (3) to develop a tool for organizing and distributing information on startup growth companies and market leaders covering primarily computer software firms that have Internet products and services; and (4) to provide a forum for entrepreneurs, business students, faculty, analysts, and venture capitalists to share their views, papers, case studies, and company reports. Cold Fusion v1.5 was selected as the development tool for delivering Web-based database applications on a Windows server. Cold Fusion uses Hyper-Text Markup Language (HTML), Common Gateway Interface (CGI), Structured Query Language (SQL), and Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) as building blocks. A diagram illustrates how Cold Fusion uses templates. (SWC)
