Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Want to use Dreamweaver MX to build significant web applications? In this book, a leading web application developer presents a focused, hands-on course that’ll help you do just that.

John Ray cuts to the chase in a hurry. By Lesson No. 4, you’re implementing significant client-side behaviors. By Lesson No. 5 you’re creating reusable components (and mastering Dreamweaver’s team development tools). There’s a detailed introduction to dynamic site development utilizing databases (including database design essentials many books leave out). Next, you’ll prepare your server for Dreamweaver MX (Ray walks through both ASP/Windows XP and PHP/Mac OS X examples, both including installation of MySQL and setting up of appropriate data sources).

In the second third of the book, Ray moves on to more advanced topics: server behaviors, authentication and security; creating database-driven web pages; auto-generating forms and pages; building queries with SQL; and implementing catalog and search functionality. Then, it’s on to the meat-and-potatoes of web application deployment and management: testing; strategies for making a static site dynamic; collecting and reporting data; tracking users; creating more complex queries; and more. In just 21 lessons, you’ll be using Dreamweaver MX exactly as you’ve been hoping to. Bill Camarda
