Web application developers using the SilverStream Web Application Platform can easily develop Java-based business applications while accessing structured relational databases.
SilverStream automatically generates applications that are either in Java or HTML, and runs in standard Web browsers, requiring no client-side installation.
Most tasks are accomplished by wizards or point-and-click and drag-and-drop, and there are Designers for Forms, Views, Web pages, database creation and modification, Agents and Security.
For example, if you want to take your music store online, SilverStream will cull CD titles from your structured database for searching by prospective buyers. Jazz up your contents by splashing album re- views with pictures of band members on their latest tour. You can also include a review system whereby previous buyers can share thoughts on their purchases. Throw in an e-mail notification service to let everyone know that your company is stocked up on all the latest releases. Close the deal by employing SilverStream's business logic to set up an online purchasing system.
