An Introduction to Dreamweaver MX

Dreamweaver MX allows you to create Web sites containing static or dynamic Web pages using technologies such as HTML, CFML, Active Server Pages (ASP), and Java Server Pages (JSP). Server technologies such as ColdFusion and ASP allow you to create dynamic Web pages. These pages generate dynamic content from a database or any other data source and show it to the Web browser.

STATIC AND DYNAMIC WEB PAGES

Static Web pages contain static HTML and text content. These pages reside on the Web server as .htm or .html files. When static pages are requested from the Web server, they’re sent to the Web browser without any kind of processing.

Dynamic Web pages are the files that contain server-side code, which is processed by the Web server for generating dynamic content. This server-side code is written using various server-side technologies, such as ASP, JSP, or CFML. The code contains commands to accept information from a user with HTML forms, access and retrieve information from databases located on the Web server, and generate dynamic content, which is sent back to the Web browser.
