Server Data Module

From HTML5 Builder
Jump to: navigation, search

A server data module is a server script that runs in a server, allowing you to use both server-side and client-side web technologies.

Unlike server units, server data modules support (non-visual) components, and their purpose is to provide data and configured components for several server pages at the same time (code reusage). For example, you can define a Database component in a data module, as well as Table, Query or Datasource components, and then include the data module in other pages that can access that database directly, so you do not have to define an instance of the database in every page of your application.

You can create a new server data module from Home > New > HTML5 Builder Projects > Files > Server Data Module, which will be opened on the Design view.
