Completing a Configuration for Chrome and a Server - Summary
(Page 5 of 5 )

We have now completed a number of exercises that demonstrate two of the most common implementations of a XUL application. These examples included:

  1. Moving the application into a chrome package
  2. Connecting the application to a server running PHP scripts
  3. Using a relational database engine to store user account information
  4. Implementing the same interface using XUL source served by PHP scripts

Although we can use any of these forms of implementation for our application, we will continue to focus on the client/server form. The use of the server to provide only textual information lends itself well to our design, in which the Firefox framework accepts the lionís share of interface rendering, and leaves the server to focus on protocol, security, and content.
