What is a Web Database?

A web database is a database forrepparttar internet. You can get access to your data viarepparttar 141553 internet from anywhere inrepparttar 141554 world. Or, you can create a database driven website by using such databases. A web database stores large amount of information in an organized format that is easily accessible from scripting languages (like PHP).

In web databases, modifications, likerepparttar 141555 ones constantly used by e-commerce sites, for example, can be performed without any hassles .That makesrepparttar 141556 dense editing ofrepparttar 141557 html code obsolete. Repeated types of data, like contact information, can be generated automatically in your website through a web database.

Daffodil DB: A web database

Daffodil DB is a J2EE-certified, SQL-99 and JDBC standards compliant Java RDBMS. It isrepparttar 141558 first java database which is compatible with PHP. Withrepparttar 141559 release of PHP extension module, Daffodil DB has joinedrepparttar 141560 select list of Java enabled web databases.

Daffodil DB is an ideal for anyone who is looking for a web database. It can be embedded within any application and delivers high performance with minimum system resource usage - thereby strikingrepparttar 141561 right balance between size, features and performance. At less than 3 MB, Daffodil DB is a small/compact database.

Daffodil DB can run on virtually any platform as it supports all platforms for which a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is available. These include Windows, Linux, Solaris and UNIX. Withrepparttar 141562 help of Daffodil DB, developers can build applications for any platform and these can be compiled and delivered on all other major platforms.


PHP (PHP Hypertext Preprocessor) is an open source server-side scripting language that is particularly suited for web development and can be used to generate dynamic web content. PHP scripts are embedded within web pages along with HTML, similar to other web scripting languages such as Microsoft's ASP or Sun Microsystems’s JSP. Like ASP and JSP, PHP runs onrepparttar 141563 web server when a page is requested via HTTP, rather than onrepparttar 141564 Web browser or other client.

PHP lets you insert instructions into your Web pages that your Web server software (be it Apache, Personal Web Server, or whatever) will execute before sending those pages to a browser that requests them.

What can you do to avoid computer slow down? – Part One

Last week I promised you an article about avoiding computer slowdowns.

The topic is so close torepparttar hearts of most computer owners that I want to write about it over two articles instead of one!

In this first part I will give you an overview of what to look out for, while inrepparttar 141552 second part I will detail how you can improverepparttar 141553 wayrepparttar 141554 various parts of your computer interact to give you a faster, more stable and secure computing experience.

Avoiding slowdowns is really all about controlling as many parts or resources of your computer as possible. The most important step to knowing how to control your computer is to learn what really goes on inside it.

There are some very useful articles on http://computer.howstuffworks.com/. Initially, I would look at general explanations of how PCs, Operating Systems (Windows), CPUs, and computer memory work.

Written with non-technical users in mind, reading these articles doesn’t have to take too long. Byrepparttar 141555 end ofrepparttar 141556 article, you will develop a thorough knowledge ofrepparttar 141557 way things work inside your computer.

Also you will lean how hardware and software interact and work together to give you smooth running applications, great game-play and a generally stable and secure environment. So you can enjoy your computer without annoying slowdowns, degradation of hardware performance and crashes.

You will also realize that although your computer system is one ofrepparttar 141558 latest high-octane models, it is just as susceptible to slow-downs asrepparttar 141559 old one you have just recycled or thrown away.

The speed and performance of computer programs depend onrepparttar 141560 hardware that is installed and how allrepparttar 141561 system are set so there are no conflicts and obstacles torepparttar 141562 smooth functioning of allrepparttar 141563 interdependent parts.

For example, if you have a fast CPU but not enough memory, you will experience slowdowns. If your modem and your browser are set-up badly, your Internet bandwidth will suffer torepparttar 141564 point of possibly not being able to connect at all.
