Oracle HTML-DB makes online systems simple

I’m hearing great things about using HTML-DB instead of JDeveloper and PHP.  Unlike JDeveloper, which may require knowledge of J2EE, EJB and O4J, HTML-DB promises to be an easier environment to develop simple systems, plus the plug-in extensions allow almost unlimited functionality.


Michael Cunningham is the author of “Easy Oracle HTML-DB” by Rampant TechPress, and he notes that the HTML-DB “wizard” approach makes the development of online systems very easy.  He also notes that Java can be embedded inside an HTMNL-DB application, allowing much of the same functionality as JDeveloper.


Oracle originally targeted HTML-DB as a replacement for Microsoft Access systems:


“If your data is worth less than $15, MS Access is a good place to store it”


In this article by Michael Klaene, we see that HTML-DB is ideal for shops that don’t want to undertake a massive pre-training effort on Java, EJB and OC4J:


“HTML DB is ideal for two categories of staff. The first group is the non-technical user. As I mentioned, end users are perfectly capable of constructing a functional application without a single line of code. For more complex requirements, developers (or power users) with knowledge of Oracle SQL and PL/SQL can add a great deal of functionality to their applications, without learning a new language. In fact, from a purely functional aspect, HTML DB lets you do virtually anything you might do with JSP, ASP, or any other Web development language.”


Oracle offers an online environment where you can teach yourself HTML-DB:


“Oracle makes it very easy for you to experiment with HTML DB without actually installing the product. You can visit Oracle's HTML DB site here and request a workspace. Once you receive your password, you can begin working with the suite of tools.”
