Transforming Host and Client/Server Applications to the Internet


The Iowa State University (ISU) Administrative Data Processing (ADP) Center provides computer services and support to most departments at Iowa State. Two of these departments are the ISU Alumni Association and the ISU Foundation. For these departments the ADP Center has successfully implemented a Graphical User Interface (GUI) Internet Alumni system, which supplements an existing powerful client server application. This application retrieves data from an external database and dynamically displays the inquired information back to the requesting client. The clients who use the application are generally impressed with the user-friendly interface, as well as the response time in retrieving data from the external database over the Internet. It is our feeling that the success of this application proves the ability to develop robust database driven applications over the Internet making client needs of the future available today.
