IBM Developerworks Web Development Tutorials:

::: Rapid Web Development :::
Want to create flexible Web sites quickly? Of course you do. Veteran developer Jim Lewin shows you how with Web standards like CSS, structural HTML, and server-side includes.

::: Introduction to Cascading Style Sheets: Type :::
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) allow you to separate Web content from its presentation -- and create sites that are flexible and attractive. Here, entrepreneur and founder of Growing Ventures Dave Taylor introduces the CSS language and focuses on type and text styles.

::: How Microbrowsers are Changing the Face of Web Architecture :::
Wireless devices are taking Web development into new territory. Get to know the various architectures used to support the microbrowsers that connect these devices.

::: SOAP Security Extensions :::
Satoshi Hada explains how Digital Signatures, SSL, and SOAP can work together in a cohesive, complementary, and standards-based system.

::: Web Architecture -- Creating Dynamic HTML :::
Paul Wilton, author of "Beginning JavaScript," describes a couple of simple examples of how to create dynamic content in HTML pages using JavaScript with Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 4.

::: Faster Web Browsing with a Caching Proxy :::
Daniel Robbins' newest tutorial shows you how to accelerate Web browsing performance while conserving your network bandwidth. You'll learn how to compile, install, and configure oops, an open source, high-performance multi-threaded Web proxy.

::: Web Architecture -- Web-Based Data Mining :::
HTML alone can make data mining a chore. Here, IBMers Jared Jackson and Jussi Myllymaki show you how to automatically extract
the information you're after using a combination of HTML, XML, and Java.

::: Proofing Web Applications for Performance and Scalability :::
In the fast-paced world of Web-application development, performance and scalability are essential. But how do you ensure that your apps make the grade? Author Frank Cohen sees the solution in a combination of XML and Java technologies. In this article, he outlines a conceptual framework for building Web software, and explains why the combination of Java objects and an XML-based scripting language works well for testing. He goes on to offer such practical Web-software test methods as state and boundary testing, and introduces an open-source set of tools and a scripting language called Load to bring it all together.

::: Web Services Programming with SOAP4TCL :::
If you are a TCL programmer, you can have a go at Web services as well. This new tutorial from Cameron Laird examines how to build TCL scripts using the SOAP4TCL module released by developerWorks on the Open source zone. It covers installing the module and details on turning TCL scripts into SOAP-capable interfaces, and running SOAP services through tclhttpd.

::: Web Architecture  -- Server-Side Scripting Languages :::
Still can't decide whether to use PHP scripts, Perl CGIs, or Java servlets for your next Web development project? Erik Zoltan presents a side-by-side comparison with functioning source code that takes you from the most basic server-side scripts through object orientation to a simple Web storefront.

::: Web Services -- Creating a Portal :::
Follow Greg Flurry through his study of the process of building a portal Web site for Application Service Providers using Java, XML, and Web services. This first of two parts introduces a regional weather station implementation for an online weather site.

::: Security -- What's the Deal with Digital Signatures? :::
Digital signatures are now commonly accepted for electronic transactions. Larry Loeb explains what they are and what they can (and cannot) do for you.
::: Unicode -- The Unicode-XML Connection :::
Tony Graham details the Unicode-related changes in XML 1.0 Second Edition.

::: Repurposing CGI :::
CGI-based applications still make up the bulk of all applications on the Web. Using popular languages such as Perl, developers have created a large library of applications that still have much practical use. See how you can repurpose your existing CGI applications as new Web services without having to rewrite them altogether.

::: Web Services -- Programming XML and Web Services in TCL :::
Cameron Laird gives a first-hand account of the developments in XML processing using the TCL programming language. Like Perl, TCL is considered a step above scripting languages. It provides an easy way to create user interfaces and build networked applications. The next step for TCL: creating Web services.

::: Dynamic Web Pages With XSLT and Java :::
This article discusses two ways to produce dynamic Web pages with Java and XSLT by passing user-request parameters from a Java back-end program to an XSLT stylesheet used to render the Web page. The sample code demonstrates the use of the XSLTProcessor method and a custom method, plus how to use global parameters in XPath expressions.

::: Web Architecture -- Perfect Your Page with Frames :::
Too many designers still rely on tables for Web content that would work better with frames. Jennifer Heins describes the advantages of
frames and shows you how to make the most of them.

::: Inside the Apache Directory Structure :::
Take this tutorial and go inside the Apache directory structure to find the key executables you need for custom configuration.

::: Usability -- The Principle of Least Astonishment :::
When computers are at their most usable, we don't even notice them; when they are at their least, they astonish us. Here, columnist Peter Seebach explores the Principle of Least Astonishment, and how it can help you develop better interfaces.

::: Usability -- Reducing the User Interface :::
Give your users the gift of productivity -- IBM's Mark Molander shows you how to bring user interface data, functions, and tasks under control.

::: Usability -- Seven Tricks that Web Users Don't Know :::
Web developers have all sorts of browsing tricks that they have gained from years of experience. The fact that many users don't know those tricks -- and can get completely stuck as a result -- can come as a shock to developers. This article describes seven Web site features that typical non-technical users aren't familiar with, based on data collected from the author's own usability studies.

::: Usability -- Site Redesign: :::
See how Daniel Robbins breathes new life into the Gentoo Linux Web site using XML, XSLT, and Python. In this installment, he shows you how to create a user-centric action plan and introduces pytext, an embedded Python interpreter.

::: Writing a simple IPv6 Program :::
Sure, IPv4 is great -- but it does have shortcomings. This article discusses the concepts behind a simple IPv6 program -- specifically, how IPv6 solves the problems of addressing space and large routing tables. If you're familiar with IPv4, this article will show you how to recognize and configure one for your machine.   

::: Tcl/Tk Quick Start :::
This tutorial introduces the Tcl/Tk scripting language, including its history, key features of the language and interpreter, some extensions, and several examples of Tcl/Tk in action (since Tk is a GUI toolkit, after all).
