Building dynamic site with PDF files

Topic: General

Question

May 16, 2005

Hello,

I am a webmaster and I have to put a database in a existing webpage. Actually it is a library with search engine, but the database is all in PDF Files and it should be kept in PDF files.
I would really appreciate if you could give me a name for a software, which I can buy or even a Java Script.

Many thanks in advance

Regards

Answer

I assume you have all the PDF files in a folder and the database accesses them by name when called up from the search engine or a form. Typically the database is queried using a language like ASP, ColdFusion or PHP. In any case, your server must be able to use one of those languages.

Answer

FrontPage is a Microsoft product and does not include Flash, which is made by Macromedia. You would have to purchase Flash separately, but it is expensive.

There are some products that are inexpensive and allow you to create Flash. See:

Files and folders

Topic: Basic Steps

Question

August 15, 2004

How Many Files and Folders required for making a web sites and their folders
names to be mention.

Answer

Some sites only have a few files or web pages. Others have many. If a site will have many web pages, it is a good idea to organize them into olders, according to subject matter. But that is not a requirement. It just makes maintaining the site easier.

Best language

Topic: General

Question

December 2, 2003

What is the best programming language or technology (e.g. HTML, JavaScript, ColdFusion MX, J2EE, VB .Net, C# .Net)using in Web development?

Answer

HTML is used as the basic structure of all web pages. It is very simple and must be known.

JavaScript allows for user interactions and special effects. Most developers use templates of existing JS code instead of writing new code.

ColdFusion is a markup language CFML that allows for dynamic pages. It can do much of the same as J2EE, VB.Net and C#.Net, but with much simpler coding. The down side is that a ColdFusion server is required.

The .Net languages can be cumbersome, but the fact that they are from Microsoft gives them an edge, and more companies use those technologies than any others. VB.Net is the most popular.

Although I like working in ColdFusion, the .Net route has the most jobs available.

Create hyperlink in footer

Topic: General

Question

August 20, 2003

Can you suggest a way to create a hyperlink in the footer. I want to add a Table of contents in the footer so that an user can directly go to the Table of contents from any page he is in.

Answer

In the newer versions of Word, there should be a "Create a Hyperlink" icon on the top menu. Then the user can use CRTL-click to jump to the TOC. I believe there is a similar feature in FrameMaker. It is straighforward in web pages.
