Help with SQL :) {2}

by Abel R
My article is called Easing into SQL and it talks about how tedious writing code can be. The article mentions common mistakes such as logic errors and typos and it also mentions how you can create most basic statements in the query design grid using Microsoft Access. When using Access you can produce an equivalent SQL statement for every query, and you can use this to your advantage. You can click the View button and choose SQL View and Access will display the query’s equivalent SQL statement. This can be very useful if you;re having trouble with SQL statements and don’t feel like producing it from scratch. read more...

ASP.Net using servers {1}

by Michael M
Microsoft Active Server Pages also known as ASP was first released in 1996 and has provided web developers with a rich and complex framework for building web applications. But since 1996 ASP has evolved greatly and has improved a lot. ASP is still known but they have now renamed it ASP.NET. It is a framework for building web applications that run over the web and client- servers are represented by a browser forwarding request. Communications over the web occur through HTTP which relies on TCP and IP to transmit data between the two nodes. ASP.Net is connected with Microsoft’s Internet Information Server also known as IIS. The Asp. Net worker process performs many task with the isapi extension and they are the main things that happen under the ASP.Net request.
This week we talked about ASP.Net in class as well as we learned some basic code that can be used for our project three. The thing that I learned in class this week is that you no longer need to use javascript in the web page the ASP.Net will take over and use its own language to process some of the users request. The thing that I took from reading this article was some of the history of ASP. ASP has evolved a lot and is kind of like a server. It connects to browsers and sends request.
I have not really dealt much with ASP. I am really interested in learning how to use it because in class this week we went over basics but the thing about Visual Basics is it is so much different and I am not used to it yet. Once I get used to using the program it will be a lot better because I will be able to do projects a lot easier. I have talked to people that understand the use of ASP and they all say it is easy once you know what to do that is why I wanted to find more information about ASP.Net.

Visual Basics {Comments Off on Visual Basics}

by Michael M
The article I read today was actually really interesting it basically went over visual basics and how it actually got started. Visual basics was created by Microsoft by John Kemeny and Thomas Kurtz. It was a program that was a great design and one that really tied Microsoft up into the computers. It was a program that  was created to make writing programs easier for users. It was one of the most widely used softwares at one point. Microsoft has been moving to a more powerful software that was redesigned and created in 2005 it is the .net. It may be one of Microsofts mistakes because they are forcing users that are so prone to using their old software to change and learn the .net program because they are no longer going to support the old one. Users are beginning to either switch over to the .net while other users are switching to different companies because if they have to adapt to change they might as well learn something new. The cool thing about visual basic is it allows users to build what they want and draw which the part of why it is called visual. Some people say that visual basic helps people that cannot program but that is not true because if you can program this tool can help make your programs that much better because it can help you out while you program. Visual basics is object oriented and also allows for inheritance with the .net version. Prior versions did not support that. read more...

Genetic and Protein Interaction Database {Comments Off on Genetic and Protein Interaction Database}

by Michael V
This peer reviewed journal article is a public update upon the progress and advancement of the BioGRID database system. The BioGRID is a public database that collects, stores, and distributes data about human and other model organisms’ genes and proteins. As of the article’s publishing date, the BioGRID holds 170 162 genetic and 177 804 protein interactions, for a total of 347 966 interactions. Because of the sheer quantity of various organism’s genetic and protein data, the interface of the database has had to upgrade forms several times to accommodate methods to display the data in meaningful forms to the users. Currently, the BioGRID is up to version 3.0 with web interface to allow public access to their information and database, and has integrated search functions, display features, and rapid queries to make it as user friendly as possible. read more...

JavaScript on the Web {Comments Off on JavaScript on the Web}

by Michael M
Baciacally this week I learned a little more about java script and how it actually works. There are many different parts to java script that I didn’t even know about. Like I did not know that java script is actually not written just like you would java. There is some variation. There are many different things that need to be taken into account when you use java script in your web pages because you cannot use java script so store anything it can just check and see if there is information in required fields if there is not it can shoot you an error message and you have to do what it wants before it uses your information and places it into some type of database. I also learned that java script is not all that secure people can do things to the code to get access to your information so its not really that great to use. I found that kind of interesting because there are times that we are on sites and believe they are safe but they may not be safe at all. Your information can be sent to their e-mail address in some instances and never placed into a database. That is what I think was kind of interesting about reading this article this week. read more...

Importance of JavaScript {1}

by Michael M
The article I read was interesting I was wondering why javascript was important for a webpage because why would you want to use java when you can use other stuff. But after reading the article it makes sense. When you look at a web page you usually judge a web site really quickly. Does it look professional or not. Is the page cluddered with links or are there things that stick out and grab your attention to the page. When you use Javascript you are pulling the visitors attention to your site because it looks professional and you are able to even plave slideshows on the page. It also doesnt need a server to validate information it can check required fields and give error messgaes if needed. The good thing about JavaScript is it can be placed in script files so it cant be ranked. If it was ranked with the code it lowers the ranking and since it can be placed in a folder it can be ranked higher then other sites. So Javascript is really benifical for someone that is a web developer and wants to have higher ratings and look professional. read more...

Joomla incorporates MySQL {1}

by Ermie C
This article is about how the new edition of Joomla has now made it possible to use Microsoft SQL Server, PostGreSQL, and MySQL.  This multi-database support has become a great plus for business owners that use Joomla for their websites.  There won’t be as much hassle by being limited to just one database structure.  This is because the creators have only made previous Joomla versions to only incorporate MySQL.  However, with the new integration of multi-database functions, the use of PHP could allow Joomla to connect with the new database tools.  There’s a couple of new things they added also; the ability to incorporate a search engine function and something called stemming where it assumes the word that is being searched.   Then there is also auto completion.  In a nutshell, they have made the interface for Joomla, a lot more user friendly and this is what will attract new customers and keep the long lasting consumers of 1.6 million websites. read more...
