I Wish I Knew How To ... Begin Programming Xojo Web is an introductory book which will give you the tools and knowledge to begin programming a webpage for the internet. This book includes static and dynamic webpages which can also be integrated with a database.
This book introduces many of the fundamentals to create webpages which include CGI and Standalone applications. Both HTTP and HTTPS standalone examples are covered with a focus on HTTP CGI's. There are many different configurations for a complete HTTP and HTTPS CGI server and are beyond this introductory writing and are only lightly discussed. Working examples are for the Xojo Web class and does not cover socket examples, as this is a complete book on its own.
This is written as a guide and introductory reference to Xojo programmers who want to learn to program Web Applications in Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux (Ubuntu - 32 bit) operating systems.
