Database-driven Web Sites
This work suggests that database driven Web sites are the future of the Internet. By installing on-line databases, Web pages become more than just advertisments and information vessels.

On-line databses provide a management nexus of scheduling, message, inventory and other information crucial for any organization. This book is for intermediate to advanced Web site developers intrigued by the opportunities behind on-line databases and interested in installing one onto their Website. With this book, the reader learns how to plan, implement and maintain a database driven Web site where business can be conducted and information easily shared.
