Full Web Application Building Takes Just Five Minutes

As long as there has been software, developers have been writing code usually one line at a time.Developers move from writing one application to the next, but a lot of the code especially with data-driven applications is either the same or highly similar.Building custom applications that implement a business's unique processes is not suited to the line-by-line approach, especially if the business wants to stay competitive. Developers need power tools to help them speed through the routine infrastructure part of application development.

So theres is tool named as Iron Speed Designer. It Generate database and reporting applications for .NET in minutes. Quickly create visually stunning, feature-rich Web 2.0 applications that are easy to customize and ready to deploy.Iron Speed Designer is a RAD (rapid application development) code generation tool that reduces the time it takes to develop a custom data-driven Web application by an "order of magnitude" says Alan S. Fisher, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board for Iron Speed, Inc.

"About 90 percent of all applications in corporate America are data-driven apps, and we can significantly reduce the time it takes developers to produce those apps." Professional software developers, database administrators, or even those who are comfortable writing scripts or basic logic can utilize Iron Speed Designer to generate applications that fetch, display, collect, modify and update data in a database without any programming.

Simply point to an existing database and let Iron Speed Designer build a sophisticated, database-driven application that's ready to deploy. In just minutes, Iron Speed Designer generates your Web application's ASPX pages, user interface code, data access logic and SQL statements.

Iron Speed Designer eliminates routine infrastructure programming, freeing you to focus on your business logic. You enjoy unrestricted access to 100% of the code, and there are no run-time license fees or special server software requirements.

Re: Full Web Application Building Takes Just Five Minutes

Iron Speed Designer generates complete, professional-looking .NET Web applications with all the user interface features you expect in custom hand-coded applications, but without the extra hand-coding.Generated Web pages are a snap to customize. No knowledge of HTML or ASPX is required ? Iron Speed Designer generates it all for you!

Getting Started With Iron Speed Designer


If you already have an existing database, getting started with Iron Speed Designer is straightforward. In some instances you may want to enhance your database before you start by adding a few fields or tables to support your new application. However in most cases you'll use Iron Speed Designer on your existing database.

First, make sure primary key and foreign key relationships are defined between the tables and that similar relationships are properly declared in the database. Iron Speed Designer relies heavily upon these relationships to build your application. Next, point the application wizard in Iron Speed Designer at the database(s) and select the tables and database views you want to use. Step through the application wizard by picking the visual style (Page Style) you want, which .NET platform you want to target your application at (2.0, 3.0, etc.), and whether you need a multi-lingual application (Iron Speed Designer supports multiple languages). After you select these things, click "Finish".

Iron Speed Designer will analyze your database and generate a fully working n-tier application with a set of web pages for data entry and data display for each table and view you selected. It generates the data access layer and all necessary SQL queries so the application runs correctly. The resulting application allows you to add, edit and view data from the designated database. This whole process usually takes less than five minutes.

Once the initial app is built, you can customize it. The first thing you'll probably want to change is the layout of various pages. You might want to rearrange data entry form fields or the way reports look. Iron Speed Designer's built-in web page layout editors allows you to drag-and-drop and remove fields on a page. You can also add and subtract filters on a table view page. Iron Speed Designer generates all the filter code necessary to do this automatically. Once you've made your changes, all you need to do is hit the Run button to regenerate the code with your changes applied.

Re: Full Web Application Building Takes Just Five Minutes

Generally, new releases of Iron Speed Designer leave your existing pages and code untouched, so you don't have to worry about your application changing without your knowledge. Only when you modify a specific page is it regenerated in the new release.

When you are ready to deploy your application, Iron Speed Designer can generate an MSI deployment installer to button-up the application into one file that can be easily installed where ever you want. Updating the application simply involves repeating the process, and Designer updates those modules that have changed. Iron Speed Designer's application security wizard generates several different types of application security mechanisms, such as Active Directory, Microsoft Authorization Manager or database-level security. None of these eliminate the need for appropriate database security, such as role and user information security.

Developers need advanced tools to rapidly build the applications businesses demand today. Tools that generate your basic infrastructure code enable you to create your business logic more quickly and satisfy your user's demands. Iron Speed Designer is an all-in-one solution. You can quickly get past the infrastructure and focus your attention on what matters most?your users.

Re: Full Web Application Building Takes Just Five Minutes

Fisher says one common problem isn't with Iron Speed Designer or the applications it generates, but rather that the developer's database doesn't have the structure necessary to generate the application their employer is looking for. "Many times, application end-users can't tell you exactly what they want until they see a working app" he says. "On the other hand, they can always tell you what they don't want.

This problem happens regardless of whether you build applications line-by-line or with Iron Speed Designer." Iron Speed Designer has an advantage over hand-coded applications in that you can rapidly prototype an application, show it to users for feedback, and then easily change the application to suit the end user

Re: Full Web Application Building Takes Just Five Minutes

Iron Speed Designer does not generate business logic; it's not a 4GL. However, in our experience, the surrounding create / retrieve / update / delete functionality comprises over 80 percent of most applications, so Iron Speed Designer provides a significant advantage by eliminating this infrastructure code. Why hand-code 100 percent of an application when you can hand-code just 20 percent?

Code generated by Iron Speed Designer is extremely well tested because it benefits from both Iron Speed?s QA process and thousands of other developers who use and test code generated by Iron Speed Designer. Using well-tested generated code reduces your overall testing load, so you can focus on testing your application's custom business logic.

It is ideal for environments where end-user requirements shift frequently. Quickly modify and regenerate your application when end-user requirements change. Iron Speed Designer includes built-in tools for synchronizing your application with an updated database schema.
