WebAssist Simplifies Expert Database Search Development

Share Article

WebAssist today announced the release WA Database Search, a next generation tool for creating advanced database search capabilities. WA Database Search lets Macromedia Dreamweaver developers combine multiple search criteria through an easy-to-use wizard interface.

A new extension for Macromedia Dreamweaver from WebAssist, WA Database Search, makes it possible for designers to incorporate sophisticated database searches in their websites. WA Database Search is an evolutionary product built on a previous product released by WebAssist, WA QueryBuilder. WA Database Search adds a sophisticated wizard for implementing multiple search types, an easier-to-use advanced server behavior mode, and enhanced documentation.

WA Database Search is intended to solve one of the primary challenges of managing a database-driven site: how do you help visitors find what they’re looking for? Simple text field searches are inadequate when Web browsers want to look for products in a specific price range or released in a certain time frame. The SQL database code needed to combine multiple search criteria is extremely advanced and often beyond the abilities of working Web designers. WA Database Search provides the most commonly required search types, such as date range, price range and advanced text search, in an easy-to-use wizard interface. The Database Search wizard creates both the complex SQL code required for the search as well as inserting the necessary form elements on a separate page.

“Online store developers are going to flip for WA Database Search,” said Michael Lekse, Director of Worldwide Sales for WebAssist. “For the first time, any designer who can point and click a mouse can combine any number of different search types in a single interface – and not touch a line of code.” Lekse went on to explain that WA Database Search has special use for both designers and developers within the Dreamweaver community. “Not only does it extend the capabilities of people who do not traditionally consider themselves developers, it also gives coders the ability to efficiently add search capabilities using a re-entrant advanced module to reduce deployment time and increase consistency.”

WA Database Search includes full documentation support as well as step-by-step guide to implementing an advanced search application, WA Database Search Recipes. Thanks to WebAssist’s partnership with Virtual Training Company, Inc. (VTC), this recipe is also available as a simulation on the WebAssist site. The simulation acts as a test drive and allows users to get a sense of how the product works prior to purchasing it.

WA Database Search is available directly from WebAssist for $149.99. Owners of WA QueryBuilder, WA eCommerce Suite or WA Dynamic Site 101 can upgrade to WA Database Search for $49.99. For volume sales or more information call WebAssist +1 (760) 633-4013, extension 2.
