About the BASICS Database and Web Site Project

Technology stack:

MySQL database -- http://www.mysql.com
Apache Tomcat Server -- http://jakarta.apache.org
Oracle XSQL Pages  -- http://otn.oracle.com/docs/tech/xml/xdk_java/doc_library/Production9i/java/xsql/readme.html
XSLT -- http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt
Perl -- only involved in the first part of the project


The project will be using a MySQL database to hold the BASICS data.  The data from this database will be published to the web using an XML-based publishing framework known as XSQL.  The XSQL pages query the database using SQL statements and automatically produce output that is in an XML format.  The XML format is then translated into HTML form through XSLT.
