Database Technologies for Web Applications
This course examines critical database and related applications technologies that enable web-based applications for e-commerce in its many variations. It also provides an in-depth study of using database technologies in the context of the Internet, including Oracle, open source variations such as MySQL, and the role of related scripting languages such as PHP. Students are introduced to theory and practice involved in dynamic, database driven web-sites that are controlled using CSS and other web-enabling artifacts. The course covers the features of page scripting languages, presents the database options available for the web-based applications, and explains how these can be combined with each other and with additional web-based tools to create effective web-based applications.
