Subject: An alternative to PHP and ASP

> Hello,
> I have finished and put up the document concerning Dreamweaver UltraDev,
> PostgreSQL, Apache and Tomcat. It is RedHat Linux specific, but those in

> other Unix and Unix like systems.
> The drag and drop database programming with .jsp is in my view a serious
> alternative to .asp and .php:
>     It is more portable - it will run on Windows NT/2000 (not that
>     todays news will encourage anyone to use that platform as a _secure_
>     web application delivery...) and all Unix platforms including Mac OS
>     X server.
>     It is accesible to non programming designers as soon as the server
>     admin and database admin have set up the servers. Very shallow
>     learning curve! Design can be done on Mac or PC.
> Feedback and improvements are accepted with pleasure.
> Future updates include making the JDBC play nice with foreign languages
