MySQL

Web programmingMySQL is an inexpensive, lightweight and fast relational database system. Its capabilities may be easily integrated into a Web environment, and it supports C, Perl, Java via the Java Database Connectivity API (JDBC) and Python programming.

With the tools MySQL provides these languages, we can create full-blown client/server applications and database-integrated Web sites without our clients spending a fortune.

We connect your Web site front end to your MySQL back end, using the Web server as an intermediary. The Web server sends a query from the user to the MySQL server, retrieves the query results, and then conveys them to the client for viewing in a browser.

There are many benefits to making your data available on the World Wide Web:

  • People accessing your data through the Web can use the browser they prefer on the type of platform they prefer. They're not limited to systems that the MySQL client programs run on. No matter how widespread the MySQL clients are, Web browsers are more so.

  • A Web interface can be customized to the requirements of a particular application. The MySQL clients are general purpose tools with a fixed interface.

  • Dynamic Web pages extend MySQL's capabilities to do things that are difficult or impossible to do using the MySQL clients. For example, one can't easily create an application that incorporates a shopping cart using MySQL clients alone.

For a database to support any kind of complexity, planning and design will save time in the long run, and our expertise with relational database design concepts enables us to efficiently create, maintain and manage your electronic database management systems.
