Chapter 22. Adding Dynamic Data to Your Pages
What sets a database apart from a mere pile of facts is its ability to selectively
retrieve information. After all, when you visit Amazon.com, you don't want
to see every piece of information on every single book and product they
sell. You probably want to see just a list of books on a certain subject or by a particular
author, and then view more detail about the books that pique your interest.
This chapter shows you how to use Dreamweaver MX 2004 to display database information
on your Web pages. Because these concepts can be tricky, you may prefer to
get some hands-on experience by completing the tutorial in Section 22.8 before reading the rest of the chapter.
