Chapter 21. Introduction to Web Applications

IN THIS CHAPTER

What is a web application? That's the question I'll try to answer in this chapter. Anyone who has spent any amount of time with web applications might tell you that they consist of many pieces all working harmoniously together to facilitate interaction between an end user and a web server. You might have a website that consists of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Additionally, you might have a web server with an installed server-side technology such as ASP, ASP.NET, ColdFusion, or PHP that responds to requests or interactions between the website and the web server. Furthermore, you might employ some sort of data-storage mechanism that takes the form of a database, XML file, or other data source.
