Most web app generators give you a tool to create specific pages and choose settings
for each and every page. While they may save time compared to writing the code yourself,
it is still time consuming to learn the intricacies of the tool.
Enter Code On Time
web app generator. This tool stands out from the others
by creating a full featured web app without any effort on your part. Point to your
database and press Generate
. In minutes you'll have an AJAX integrated web

Caspio requires you to design and create "task" oriented pages (separate pages for
editing, searching, adding records, etc). We instantly generate multi-functional
pages to improve user experience and simplify maintenance. A database of ten tables
will translate into ten Code On Time pages. Caspio will require you to create more
than 40 pages to do the same. Several Code On Time customers were able to create
and maintain web applications with more than 300 tables. Code On Time will automatically
create multi-function pages such as the one in the picture below, with no effort
on your part. For comparison, see this six minute video
on how to create a single Caspio web form.
Code On Time web apps now include Access Control Rules, the first component of EASE
(Enterprise Application Services Engine). Access Control Rules
allow easy creation of sophisticated data segmentation
rules, making multi-tenant applications simple to develop and maintain. The upcoming
components of EASE will make this process even easier.
The number of customization requests that you receive after deployment is critical
to fully appreciate the quality of the produced application. Web applications created
with Code On Time
generator will shine in this department. Use Code On Time
(shown below) for a point-and-click approach to customization.
Code On Time web apps also allow easy extension with business logic classes and
custom user controls - you can use your favorite code editing program, such as Visual

you can spend your time with Caspio
clicking through wizards.
Using the Project Designer, you can drag and drop project configuration elements to customize your web application.
Both beginners and power users will benefit from alternative designer Code On Time Tools for Excel.
Hosting and maintaining your own on-premise application setup is difficult. Just
setting it up will take lots of time and money, let alone updating and scaling to
fit the user's needs. Windows Azure cloud hosting makes this easy - deploy your
application to the cloud with Azure
. With a few clicks, your application will be protected by firewall,
enhanced with load balancer, and running on two extra-small Compute instances. There
are no upfront expenses or need to have extensive knowledge - just pay as you go.

Using a dynamic web portal for your database web applications can dramatically increase
flexibility. If you try setting this up on your own, you'll find that this task
is not that simple. Instead of building your own portal, why not use the most popular
portal software? DotNetNuke can be up and running within minutes. Code On Time's
DotNetNuke Factory creates DNN modules that are ready for deployment to your portal.
Simply point to your DotNetNuke instance, generate the application, and press deploy.
Within a few minutes, you can add your data module to any page. Look at our tutorial
for more info.
What would you say if your users were able to edit data in a web browser as if it
