Jumpstart Web Development with Intelligent Templates
Customizable Templates with a Wide Variety of Functionality
WebSmart templates help you quickly create programs with a professional look and include powerful built-in programming logic and functionality. Here are some of the templates to choose from and you can create your own templates.
- Page-at-a-time subfile with options to add, change, display or delete records. SQL option provides sortable columns and filter option on any field.
- Input-capable page at a time - Transaction-style direct data entry into a list of records on a page.
- Login page (ILE only) - Use as the starting point for logging in to any web application
The grid template provides a feature-rich environment to display your tabular data. It includes resizable columns, easy paging and sorting, and uses AJAX and JSON to process and display data faster. It also uses the jQuery Grid object, which provides many styling options and features.
DB2, MySQL, MS SQL and Oracle Templates
WebSmart includes templates that make it easy for you to create applications that access data over DB2, MySQL and MS SQL. The PHP edition also includes Oracle templates.
Object-Oriented PHP Templates
WebSmart PHP's DB2 templates create PHP objects, which allows programmers to better encapsulate and reuse components when they combine programs. The program structure is easy for procedural programmers to understand and is simpler overall because more of the functionality is delegated to base classes.
OO code is more commonly used than procedural PHP in professional PHP applications and makes your application easier to test, maintain, and reuse.
See the WebSmart Mobile features for information on the mobile templates and productivity features.
The WebSmart wizards will save you valuable time by walking you through creating programs by prompting you for values and validating your entries. Here is a list of some of the wizards and you can also create your own:
- Program attributes
- Adding and linking files
- Selecting fields to display
- Action options on subfile (Add, Change, Delete)
- HTML wizards
