Chapter 23. A Database Primer

IN THIS CHAPTER

As you begin to build dynamic web applications using Dreamweaver, it will become increasingly obvious that you'll need to store data in some sort of storage mechanism and allow its access through your web application. Whether you are building a small, company-wide Intranet store with access limited to employees or a feature-rich Internet web store that millions will visit, you will need some system for storing all the order, customer, cost, and product information. You might not want to stop there however, you might want to include some way of tracking how many of a certain item you have left in your inventory. You might even need to determine how many items are selling during a particular week of the month. If that's the case, you will need some way of determining sales transactions. Like a filing cabinet that stores files and, subsequently, data within those files, you will need some mechanism of storing all your data for easy access and quick retrieval. That mechanism is the database.
