In this chapter we survey the languages and frameworks commonly used for performing server-side computation and generating Web pages dynamically. Often, the content of dynamically-generated pages is stored in a database, so we include a short introduction to conventional database technology and SQL. Some examples of server-side programming in PHP are described in detail.

Topics covered in this chapter include:

  • Server-Side Technologies
  • Ready-Made Applications
  • Databases
  • Dynamically Generated Pages

This chapter also includes Key Points and end of chapter exercises. Sample answers to the Test Questions can be found on the book’s support site.
