Overview of the Technique

Before diving into details, let’s get a bird’s-eye view of what’s involved:

  • One or more templates with editable regions are constructed and stored in a Dreamweaver site.

  • The data that is intended to replace the content in the editable regions is stored in a data source, such as an Access or SQL Server database.

  • A Web application page that extracts the data from the data source and restyles it in a text format is created.

  • A request is sent from a Dreamweaver extension to an application server (either local or remote) for the Web application page.

  • Dreamweaver parses the data and inserts it into the proper places in an instance of a template.

  • The new document—derived from a template and complete with the integrated data—is stored as a standard HTML page.
