HowTos >> CreateWebInterfaces

How do I create a web interface to the information in my MV DBMS?

Commercial Solutions

  • A video on this page, provided by Nebula Research and Development, demonstrates how to create a web service client and server with the .NET Framework. The connectivity to the DBMS is through mv.NET.

Open Source Solutions

  • u2pipe
    Connect a web server to a U2 (Universe or Unidata) database via u2pipe.

In House Solutions

  • You can use UniObjects for Java to develop anything you can imagine. Ideas include Struts-based web applications running under Tomcat (or another Servlet container) and XML-based Web Services with Apache Axis. See JavaSource for more info.
  • You can use PHP or Perl and InterCall together
    • Jeff Butera has a working example, and Brooklyn Law School is using a modified version of it.
    • A post to u2-users from Ken Hall saying he also has PHP->Intercall working.
      (per Ken Hall, this is no longer available)
    • PerlSource has some code samples from the dawn of time
