1. An Introduction to Developing Web Applications using Visual LANSA

This guide gives you an overview of LANSA's Visual LANSA web architecture and explains the key concepts you will need to get started.

The techniques you use to build web applications are the same as when you're writing a Desktop Rich Client using Visual LANSA Forms and Components.

You now create a Web Page instead of a Form, but on that web page you can drag and drop controls, you can write RDMLX event handlers and incorporate the use of Reusable Parts.

Where a Form compiles into a DLL that's executed within the LANSA runtime, a Web Page compiles into a JavaScript file that's executed within LANSA's JavaScript runtime, as well as a little bit of HTML that defines the starting point of your application.
