Developing a database application on the Internet

This assignment illustrates the power and simplicity of building an application using an Internet service.

I created two simple roster applications. I programmed one by hand and built the second using Zoho Creator, an Internet database service.

Add your name and email address to the hand-programmed roster:

If you have not already done so, add your name and email address to Zoho Creator roster:

Print both roster listings with your name on them.

Play around with both applications until you see how they work. For example, delete and re-add your record from both rosters. Sort the Zoho Creator roster. Filter out some records from it.

1. Both are class roster applications, but they are not identical. What are two differences between the two applications?

2. Which roster application is most useful and flexible? (Explain your answer).

Turn in your answers to these questions along with the printouts showing your entry in both rosters.
