Description

This paper describes an application of webMathematica for constructing a web site for a sports records database. The web site has: a visual interface for the record data; a flexible searching mechanism; an interaction mechanism for the user events. JDBC is used to access the database, and the data is directly imported into Mathematica. For the visual interface, Scalable Vector Graphics—SVG is used and the SVG is processed by Mathematica as expressions. Mathematica's list manipulation functions enable flexible handling of XML tags. From the experience of the web site construction, the author concludes that webMathematica is suitable as a main processing center of web resources, such as HTML pages, graphics, XML, and databases.
