Deploying dynamic data to the web

Net.Data is a server-side scripting language that extends web servers by enabling the dynamic generation of web pages using data from a variety of data sources.

Net.Data provides the connectivity to dynamic data that can make your web site stand out from the crowd! Your web applications will have the power of all of the data in your enterprise.

The data sources can include relational and nonrelational database management systems such as DB2, DRDA-enabled databases, and flat-file data. With Net.Data, your web application users can get your company's most current corporate information on demand. Maybe it's a complete directory of product information for your company. Perhaps it's a list of inventory, prices, and delivery times to which a mobile sales force can refer during sales calls. Whatever form the information takes, it is business-critical data for your company, and so it must be up to date and current.

High performance connectivity to dynamic data

Net.Data manages the connections to your relational databases for optimum performance. Net.Data establishes a continuous connection to specified databases. Net.Data maintains the connection throughout the web application as well as across invocations of web applications. Since the database connections are continuous, the application does not experience the overhead of a connect and subsequent disconnect from the database. The result is peak performance of your interactive web application.

Use existing business logic to Web-enable client/server applications

The Net.Data scripting language contains lots of built-in functions that enable you to easily perform such tasks as sending e-mails, manipulating cookies, etc. Net.Data is shipped with data connectors called language environments that allow you to retrieve data from a variety of sources including databases such as DB2. With Net.Data, you can enable your existing business logic to turn your client/server applications into web applications. Net.Data supports calls to RPG, Cobol, C/C++, and REXX applications.

Rapid development of Internet and intranet applications

The Net.Data scripting language is an interpreted language. Thus, any changes you make to a Net.Data script can be immediately seen when you next specify the URL that executes the script. No recompilation is required.
