Need Web Tips

I originally posted this in getting started, But just found this channel.


I’ve been using Xojo for desktop apps for a while, but now want to do some web apps to replace a lot of our php forms.

I’m looking for any gotyas that I should avoid.

Basically I’ll be accepting input, including credit cart info, passing it to a php script that will handle passing the credit card info to , (Unless some one has a library to do this) and then Sending out some emails.

Some initial questions:

  1. I assume it’s easy to pass parameters to an Xojo Page, am I right?

  2. Should I keep all my Xojo web apps in the same Directory?

  3. Whats the best way to handle keeping common data like the database credentials so more than one program can access them?

  4. How do you handle sessions?

  5. Is there any docs that go into any of this?

I am going to the conference next week and plan on attending a few web sessions. Any recommendations?
