Dynamic pages - server-side


Dynamic pages

By a dynamic web page we do not mean a page that is user-interactive or a page with visuals or movie effects.

We just mean a page that is not pre-built. Page built at runtime. A program is run. Page is output of program.

Pre-built page is called a static web page.


Server-side program

Why would the program to build the page run on the server rather than on client?
Basically: If it has to run on the server. Can't run on client.
e.g. Interact with server database.

CGI scripts and HTML Forms


Java server-side

Microsoft ASP

Javascript server-side
