Chapter 30. JavaScript Project: Creating... > Creating the Project Data

Creating the Project Data

Databases are usually files that reside on a server and that require a CGI or ASP (Active Server Pages) script to access. However, if you're dealing with only a small number of items (say, a few dozen or less), then you can create a simple but useful database using just client-side JavaScript.

Designing the Data

When creating any database, the first question you always ask yourself is, "What do I want to do?" This leads immediately to a second, closely related, question: "What information do I need to store that to help me accomplish what I want to do?" The next two sections use these questions to design the two databases that I use in this project.
