DATA ACCESS WORLDWIDE DEBUTS "WEBAPP SERVER".Data Access Worldwide has introduced WebApp Server, an application server product suite for delivering dynamic, web- enabled database applications using Windows NT (Windows New Technology) A 32-bit operating system from Microsoft for Intel x86 CPUs. NT is the core technology in Windows 2000 and Windows XP (see Windows). Available in separate client and server versions, it includes built-in networking and preemptive multitasking. . Data Access Worldwide has enlisted over 20 years of database application development experience to create WebApp Server. The final result allows developers to create fast, secure, multi-tier Internet database applications easier than ever.
"WebApp Server fits perfectly into Microsoft's industry leading Dynamic Internet Application Architecture (DNA DNA: see nucleic acid.
or deoxyribonucleic acid
One of two types of nucleic acid (the other is RNA); a complex organic compound found in all living cells and many viruses. It is the chemical substance of genes. ) by providing an advanced, modular business logic engine for Internet applications," said Charles Casanave, president of Data Access Corporation. "Now IIS/ASP developers can grow the web server they know into a high performance application server that they'll love. WebApp Server and its framework based WebApp(TM) Studio development tool is an unbeatable combination that takes full advantage of Microsoft's strengths at an affordable price."
"WebApp Server exploits Microsoft standards such as IIS (Internet Information Services) Microsoft's Web server. IIS runs under the server versions of Windows, adding HTTP server capability to the Windows operating system. and ASP to the maximum, so that experienced Windows developers experience a shallow learning curve." Distributed by the META Group, an industry leading marketing research firm, which specializes in the technology field.
The WebApp development process begins with WebApp Studio, a powerful IDE that runs on Microsoft Windows See Windows.

Web application business logic and database operations are executed by the WebApp Server.
WebApp Server beta testers have already embraced Data Access Worldwide's latest release. "I couldn't believe how easy it was to develop a web application using WebApp Server! What should have taken six months took us six weeks!" said Scott Weaver, vice president software development, CoLinear co·lin·e·ar
