  • Books about Web development abound but few, if any, explain the topic from a business application developer's point of view. Developing Business Applications for the Web: With HTML, CSS, JSP, PHP, ASP.NET, and JavaScript is the book business developers have been waiting for. Written by business developers and educators for business developers, this book bridges the gap between website and business application programming, giving developers the knowledge they need to build Web browser front-end applications that let users interact with business data.

    Developing Business Applications for the Web
    focuses on six Web development technologies commonly used to develop business applications. The book starts by introducing business developers and students to HTML and CSS, the building blocks of a business website. After exploring these fundamentals, the book delves into other key Web technologies: JavaServer Pages (JSP), PHP, ASP.NET, and JavaScript. Throughout the book, readers learn concepts and techniques through an example browser-based business application that lets a business's external and internal customers access enterprise data via the Web.

    Using this guide, professional business programmers and students even those with little or no Web development experience will quickly acquire the knowledge and skills essential for developing and deploying robust, data-driven, Web-based interfaces for business applications. Guided by authors and experienced business developers Laura Ubelhor and Christian Hur, you will become familiar with popular Web development technologies and learn to use them to build applications that do real business work.

    Upon completion of this book, you will:

    • Be familiar with HTML and other common tools necessary to deploy robust, data-driven, Web-based business applications.
    • Discover how other technologies interact with HTML to present enterprise data and provide an agreeable user experience.
    • Include HTML, JSP, PHP, ASP.NET, and JavaScript in your application development skill set.
    • Know all the components required to develop and deploy business Web applications.
    • Understand common Web development tools and how they fit within a complete business Web application.
