[REBOL] Re: No Don`t Leave Re: Re licence.key for SDK

From: idsrini:gma:il at: 28-May-2008 20:32

Hi Guys, I agree that this is a good forum also .......... Now that I've got the /Pro version, I'll be developing some proto apps.... The ability to develop business appns hinges on the software allowing access to databases. Now that Rebol has made the /Pro version free, it would be easier to develop appns using Sqlite. At least there is access to a database. Lack of access to a database puts off a lot of developers ..... Also, there are opportunities for indies like me to use this to demo to clients / prospects. It reminds me of the good old dbase III and Clipper days. Also the roboustness of Rebol can be tested for business applications.... Given the advent of the web, developing web applications also is an important aspect..... In ASP.NET there are server side control that make it easy to develop web pages. Is there an equivalent in Rebol or does one need to render web pages by throwing HTML code....... Also, HTML is not a very effective way for developing RUI (Rich User Interfaces). To this end Adobe and other companies have their own mechanisms to enable a Rich User Experience. Is it possible to have a client user interface (VID / REBGUI) and access the data over the net from a database kept on a web server? In such a case, the data needs to be transported over HTTP or HTTPS. Is there an equivalent of Web Services available in REBOL? In such a scenario, end users can have the best of both worlds, Rich User Experience over the WEB. Given Rebol's small size, this would not impact any response times and the issues with installation are virtually non-existent with Rebol..... Of course, there may be security issues.....
