Part No. A95259-01
This chapter introduces Oracle Web-to-Go. Topics include:
Section 1.3, "Developing Web-to-Go Applications"
Section 1.4, "The Web-to-Go Tutorial"
Web-to-Go is an implementation platform for Web applications. It is part of the Mobile Server, which contains features that simplify the creation, deployment, administration and operation of mobile intranet and Internet applications. With Web-to-Go, you can develop scalable browser-based Web applications that run on servers, and laptops. When the user wants to run an application, Web-to-Go enables the user to download the selected application and data from Oracle8 or Oracle8i to the Oracle Lite database on the client device. The user runs the Web-to-Go application offline, connecting to Oracle Lite on the client device. When the user finishes working with the selected application, the user synchronizes the application and the data, using Web-to-Go to replicate and the data from Oracle Lite to Oracle8 or Oracle8i.
Before you implement Web-to-Go, you should understand Web-to-Go concepts and terminology. Chapter 2, " Concepts", provides a conceptual overview of Web-to-Go and the Glossary contains a complete list of Web-to-Go terms and definitions. You should review these sections before getting started.
The instructions in Chapter 3, " Developing Web-to-Go Applications" provide an overview of how to develop Web-to-Go applications. For more detailed information on developing applications, this guide also provides sample applications and troubleshooting information.
The process of publishing, managing, and deploying the applications that you have developed is discussed in the Oracle9i Lite Administration Guide.
Once you understand Web-to-Go concepts and terminology and have formulated an overview of developing Web-to-Go applications, you should become familiar with the specific details of the Web-to-Go development and implementation process. Chapter 4, " The Web-to-Go Tutorial" guides you through the process of developing and running a simple Web-to-Go application.
