Net.Data Power

Course Code: ACG3


AS/400 Net.Data Power is a self-paced, audio-cassette course designed to provide AS/400 web site designers and programmers with essential skills for using Net.Data. Using an example web site scenario, participants will configure Net.Data, code HTML sections, present the results of SQL queries in web pages, update database files with HTML input, call OS/400 programs, run built-in functions, and debug Net.Data applications. The course software includes all example HTML, Net.Data macros, database files, OS/400 program source, and a ready-to-go guest book application with a native interface.

Upon completion you'll be able to:

Configure Net.Data to run under the IBM HTTP server.
Configure the Net.Data Initialization (INI) file.
Code static and dynamic HTML macros.
Customize the results of SQL queries in web pages.
