UKOLN "DataWEb: Three Worlds Collide" talk given at the "Institutional Web Managment" Workshop


This presentation describes Rutherford Appleton Laboratory's DataWeb service, which uses Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) technology and a RDBMS. The first half of the talk will describe DataWeb and its key features (and indeed the disadvantages). The second half of the talk will be more informal - a series of horror stories and moments of success the various implementation issues were tackled.
