<AppML> Case Study - Introduction

This case study demonstrates how to build a full <AppML> Internet application, with functions for listing, editing, and searching information from several tables in a database.

What We Will Build

We will use an existing database called Demo.

For each table in the database we will:

  • Create prototype models
  • Create prototype HTML pages
  • Create application models
  •  Create HTML templates
  • Create full applications

The Demo Database

For the case study we have used a subset of the Northwind database that comes preinstalled with MS Office.

This database is well known to many, and easy available for testing using both PHP, Classic ASP, and ASP.NET.

The demo database contains several tables with data much like this:
