Hi Jamie,
I think you misunderstood my threads and comments.. I clearly
stated in my very first thread:
"The current version of VFP will do web based applications."
In my last thread, the thread before this one I state:
"As I mentioned, VFP does web based applications, but in what I do
I need a product that is keenly in line with quick and rapid web
site backend development and deployment."
I look at the following things for a web application development
environment to meet my needs... keep in mind my needs may not be
the needs of others. So someone may decide VFP meets all their
web development needs, others way look to other development
environments. Below is just some of the things I want.
1. Does it automatically handle SQL-Server, Oracle, MS JET 4.0,
and ODBC complient databases via a quick and easy connection wizard.
2. How tightly does it integrate into my other web development tools.
So if I want to user DreamWeaver, or am FrontPage fan, can the product
automatically hook into my site editor of choice in a seamless manner.
3. How good is the code that the product produces. Both of these
products generate the code for you in the language of your choice and
provide extensive hook-ins for customized snippits.
4. How easy is it to make custom modifications once a site has been
generated.
5. How extensive are the toolbar objects avaiable during development.
As an example on point 2. above, I need to switch back and forth
between Iron Speed/Code Charge and my web site editor to add things
in like a flash slide show. Are all the common controls avaialable.

Another very high end product I use is TRM Screen Builder. This is
a Java based visual screen development environment that is 100% web
based. Mind you this development screen builder approaches the
$8,000.00 Canadian for one license. This product tightly intergrates
into BEA WebLogic, or IBM WebSphere and automatically deploys your
.ear files and compiles on the fly.

I hope you can get some idea from what I am outlining here why I
use these other tools.
