TheDevShop has just released dbQwikSite 3.0, a web site application generation program that creates data driven web sites by reading your databases. Version 3.0 adds many new powerful features while preserving the programs trademark ease of use.
dbQwikSite starts by connecting to any data source on your PC. Creating a web site is a matter checking your desired page types, selecting data via a table or a query, and saving you pages. The integrated visual query builder creates all the necessary SQL statements for you. You can save pages as either ASP or PHP giving you the choice to host on Windows or Linux servers. The design page preview shows your pages as you select design options, speeding the design process. dbQwikSite allows you to live test your pages on your PC with a click of a button. Once you are finished designing and testing, the publisher will help convert all your connection strings for your host environment and move your pages to your server.
