Structured Query Language (SQL) has become the standard for communicating to a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS). RDBMS have become the die-facto standard for organizing data. MySQL is a fast growing RDMBS and also has a library that supports sending SQL commands to its database using the PHP scripting language. Recently Sun Microsystems has purchases MySQL. This will help expand the roll of MySQL beyond a popular Web Database system, into a more mainstream fortune 500 database. CSB4 uses the same MySQL RDBMS as cim205a. More Specifically CIM205A Covers...

  • Basic SQL Syntax
  • Basic SQL Commands and Fundamentals
  • Creating Relational Databases
  • Advance Query Creation
  • MySQL local client interfaces and Web-based tools
CIMW160 JavaScript/jQuery

Java Script is the predominant client side scripting language. All modern day browser include Java Script engines. In fact, many browser actually compile Java Script into an executable format.

jQuery is a Java-script framework. A framework is a collection of previously Java-script code that makes it easy, to create Web pages. When dealing with Web pages all Web developers have a similar set of requirement, jQuery is very good at streamlining these requirements. In jQuery has become the most used Java-script framework.

This assignment page implements a jQuery User Interface accordion widget. Class covers jQuery selectors, events, UI (user interface) library and AJAX.

Class also covers AJAX (Asynchronous Java-script and XML). AJAX has become the de facto standard for sending XML formatted data to a Web Page, without having to reload the entire page.
