FlashConnect Programmer's Reference Manual introduction

FlashConnect is a middleware package that connects Pick BASIC business rules with TCP/IP-based external components such as Web servers. D3 and mvBase are the Pick databases referred to as database servers for this product.

Design goals

FlashConnect design goals include:

  • It should be easy for a Pick BASIC developer to understand and use FlashConnect.

  • The library should be compatible with tools such as Microsoft Front Page, Macromedia Dreamweaver, and JavaScript.

  • FlashConnect follows existing standards to maintain compatibility with existing and future browsers and Web servers.

  • Provide the ability to create static, active and 'intelligent' Web pages.
