Thought of the Week:- "Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life."
Query Web:- http://www.query-web.com/ Free (9 MB). Windows 98 onwards.

QueryWeb is an extensive, multi-featured web-page creation application designed to guide the professional webmaster through the development, testing, and production cycles of a commercial web-site construction project using Microsoft's Access database information. It is a product designed to build static, yet dynamic HTML Pages, Internet Channels, XML Scripts and all kinds of script languages, mixing it with MS-Access data. One can generate thousands of Web Pages containing all of your MS-Access Database Data and with no middleware like ASP's or CGI's, in an incredibly fast, cheap and easy-to-maintain way, avoiding the need to synchronize Databases, make tuning Databases and programming "not-so-easy" CGIs.

Query Web uses its own tags to combine custom SQL queries with your template files, allowing you to join as many tables as you need, create data loops, IF statements and more. It can also generate files and directory structures with names based on field values in your database and much more. Query Web comes with a complete interface to manage every aspect of the publishing process, it provides detailed log files, a scheduling option and a variety of other powerful features. The program requires you to have some knowledge of SQL in order to use it to its full extend. QueryWeb requires an Access 97 compatible database as data source (one can convert an Access 2000 db to the 97 format). It supports all kinds of scripting languages: select your favorite script language, and the program mixes your script with your Access database information, using its own tags.

QueryWeb can handle many different projects, environments and their own variables, with no limit of templates and with a small group of special TAGs. This feature allows you to have Development, Test and Production in separate locations freeing you from having to do your tests in the same production area or managed by the same people. It supports many languages like English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Czech, German and Hungarian.
