VESTAL, N.Y., Dec. 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Many Web designers are challenged by trying to develop data-connected interactive websites, according to dataBased Intelligence Inc. (dBI), heir to the historic dBASE software program.
"Although Web designers are comfortable with HTML and CSS, they're not database programmers," said Don Franck, CEO of dataBased Intelligence. "That's why we created dbEverywhere. Now designers can develop sites that gather data from visitors, display pages of live data, and generate sophisticated PHP and MySQL applications automatically. All without writing one line of code."
dbEverywhere, launching today at www.dbEverywhere.com, was built with a wizard interface that walks designers through the development process by asking easy questions such as: "To which database do you want to connect?" "Which fields in a table do you want?" "Which color background do you want?" Then it automatically generates the working code.
In addition to fast-running code, dbEverywhere generates two versions: one for desktop browsers, one for mobile devices. When a dbEverywhere-generated page is called, it determines if it's being asked to run on a desktop, smart phone or iPad, then automatically switches to the appropriate version for that particular device.
By making it simpler to employ live data over the Web, designers can quickly create data-aware sites that gather visitor information, conduct surveys, search inventory, and allow visitors to ask for information that requires the site to compose a Web page on the fly.
dbEverywhere includes a Web development environment where designers can safely create offline, then deploy to a live site only when everything has been polished and tested. The dbEverywhere wizard has a preview feature that allows pages to be viewed, changed, then updated instantaneously, speeding website creation.
"We believe dbEverywhere is the easiest way to gather and display live data – anywhere," said Franck. "And we should know since, thanks to dBASE, we've been handling data longer than anyone!"
Located in Vestal, NY, directly across the river from IBM's founding location in Endicott, NY -- considered by many to be the birthplace of the computer age -- dataBased Intelligence acquired dBASE in 1999. Created 30 years ago by Ashton-Tate, and popularized by Borland, the .dbf file format is still used today by millions in Fortune 1000 companies and government agencies around the globe.
Priced at $149.00, dbEverywhere is available as a download at www.dbEverywhere.com.
