Interacting with MySQL to Build a Web Site Indexing Application with Prototype

Are you one of those web developers who wants to learn how to quickly build robust AJAX-driven applications using the Prototype JavaScript library? Then welcome to the final tutorial of the series "Building a web site indexing application with Prototype." Comprised of three articles, this series shows you how to use Prototype's strong capabilities to create an expansible AJAX-based application that indexes the data for different web sites, including their URLs, titles, and brief descriptions.

Interacting with MySQL to Build a Web Site Indexing Application with Prototype
(Page 1 of 4 )


Going back for a moment to the previous article of this series, you'll probably remember that most of the primary modules that integrate this indexing application were already developed. First I created the corresponding user interface for adding and displaying web site data. Then I went through the definition of all the JavaScript functions, which were tasked with submitting new web site information in the background via the Prototype's AJAX.Updater object, as well as displaying all this data as part of a general indexing system.

If you already used the neat capabilities that come integrated with Prototype to develop a diverse range of AJAX-driven web applications, then you'll realize that this process is quite straightforward and comprehensive, and certainly it can be addressed with minor hassles.

So, at this stage you hopefully learned how to develop all the client-side code that corresponds to this web site indexing system. The question that comes now is: what's the next step in this journey?

Well, over the course of this final part of the series, I'm going to complete the application by creating a simple PHP script. The script will take care of adding new web site data to a simple MySQL database table, in addition to displaying the complete list of existing web sites that integrate the indexing system.

Are you ready to face the last part of this series and learn how the server module of this application will be developed in a few easy steps? All right, let's get started.
