Create Application with Longtion Application Builder
|You can create database application and Web application
with Longtion Application Builder. It is easy and simple.
Create database application with Longtion Application Builder
What is database application?Database applications let users interact with information that is stored in databases. Databases provide structure for the information, and allow it to be shared among different applications.
Longtion Application Builder provides support for relational database applications. Relational databases organize information into tables, which contain rows (records) and columns (fields). These tables can be manipulated by simple operations known as the relational calculus.
When designing a database application, you must understand how the data is structured. Based on that structure, you can then design a user interface to display data to the user and allow the user to enter new information or modify existing data.
How to connect to database server?Database applications created by Longtion Application Builder use ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) to access database information through OLEDB. ADO is a Microsoft Standard. There is a broad range of ADO drivers available for connecting to different database servers. ADO, (Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects) is a set of COM objects that access data through an OLE DB provider. ADO and OLE DB is supplied by Microsoft and installed with Windows. An ADO provider represents one of a number of types of access, from native OLE DB drivers to ODBC drivers. These drivers must be installed on the client computer. OLE DB drivers for various database systems are supplied by the database vendor or by a third-party. If the application uses an SQL database, such as Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle, the client software for that database system must also be installed on the client computer. Client software is supplied by the database vendor and installed from the database systems CD (or disk).
Create database applications with Longtion Application BuilderLongtion Application Builder is a tool for creating database applications without writing any code. And you don't have to be a software programmer to do it. With its intuitive integrated development environment (IDE) and drag-and-drop objects, it's quick to learn and easy to use. It requires no programming knowledge.
Create database applications that can create, restructure, fetch data from, update, and otherwise manipulate local (Paradox, dBASE, FoxPro, and Access) and remote database servers (Oracle, Sybase, Informix, Microsoft SQL server, and DB2). You can access a wide variety of database servers, using ADO or ODBC to connect to different databases.
With Longtion Application Builder, you can create database applications that analyze and summarize information from databases so that users can draw conclusions from the data. The DBChart object lets you present database information in a graphical format that enables users to quickly grasp the import of database information. DBChart includes chart series types: Line, Area, Point, Bar, Horizontal Bar and Pie.
With Longtion Application Builder, you can create database applications that print database information. If you want to let your users print database information from the datasets in your database application, you can use Report objects, visual report design objects. You can use Report objects to create a variety of reports, from simple banded reports to more complex, highly customized reports. Users can also export reports to PDF (.pdf), RichText (.rtf), Excel (.xls) and Text (.txt) files.
Create Web application with Longtion Application Builder
What is Web application?A web application is an application that is accessed over a network such as the Internet or an intranet. The term may also mean a computer software application that is hosted in a browser-controlled environment or coded in a browser-supported language and reliant on a common web browser to render the application executable.
Why Web applications?Web applications are popular due to the ubiquity of web browsers, and the convenience of using a web browser as a client, sometimes called a thin client. The ability to update and maintain web applications without distributing and installing software on potentially thousands of client computers is a key reason for their popularity, as is the inherent support for cross-platform compatibility.
How to create Web applications with Longtion Application Builder?With Longtion Application Builder you can create standalone Web applications exactly the same way you would create normal database applications. It is a revolutionary new way to create web-based applications. The standalone Web application is a web server that run without dependencies from any other web server (IIS or Apache).
