Chapter 4. Collecting Data with Forms > Form Processing Options

Form Processing Options

There are three broad categories of form processing options: by email, through scripting, or by using middleware applications. The third, middleware applications, refers to products such as Allaire's Cold Fusion, Microsoft's Active Server Pages, and other application servers that run in conjunction with the Web server software. The use of these systems for forms processing goes beyond the scope of this text, so I won't go into them any further.

mailto: Form Action

The processing method that's probably easiest to implement is unfortunately also the most unreliable: the mailto: function.
