In order to understand web development better, it is important to know the things that constitute it. These are client side, server side, client, and server side and the database. To discuss further, the client side coding allows you to alter the HTML on a local client and refresh the pages with updated content.
What are examples?
Server side language
On the other hand, the Server Side Coding is executed on a web server which generates the appropriate XHTML which is then sent to the client. Examples include Cold Fusion, Lotus Domino, Real Studio Web Edition, and many more.
Here, web designers must always keep in mind the importance of security with their server-side scripts. For instance, if the server script accepts requests and contents from a locally modified client-side script, then the development of that page is poor most especially when it comes to security.
Client side language
Newer languages like Ruby and Python have often paired with servers for databases apart from MySQL (the M in LAMP). LAPR (Linux/Apache/PostgreSQL/Ruby on Rails) is an example of another database server that is widely used on the web for the setup of its development.
Lastly, the Database Technology include Apache Derby, DB2 (IBM proprietary), Firebird, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Sybase, WebDNA, Redis, MongoDB, and CouchDB. Better find ColdFusion talent as they know how to connect simple pages to the database.
