Information Technology Policies and Standards
|Data Access Standard|
|Standardization of Website Publishing and Development Tools Policy|
To Be Reviewed
|This standard ensures a professional City of Albuquerque web presence that meets current conventions in government website management. It also allows the city to aggregate code into reusable libraries, and to standardize development environments.|
|Web applications will be written, as far as possible, for the Oracle RDBMS environment.|
Web application design and implementation should separate and differentiate between client and server such that all database processing takes place on the server.
|Oracle is the city standard for database development. There will be exceptions to this, but this will be on a case by case basis.|
Making a distinction between client and server is advantageous for the following reasons:
-Release maintenance is simplified
-Client side code will have a smaller footprint and be less complex
-Performance will be improved because:
~The process is distributed/shared.
~It prevents applets from dragging back large amounts of data to process.
