Customizing Default Web Pages

Default web pages are ideal for prototyping sessions with end users at an early stage, but ultimately you want to customize them so that they take on the overall web site look-and-feel.

You can make most important design specifications in the Web Designer interface and store them in a central repository. For example, you can design several buttons you want on web pages, specify input fields you want to display, and specify whether input in these fields is mandatory.

The data traffic between web pages and database is in standard XML format. This opens up all of the possibilities inherent to XML technology. You can also use XSL transformation sheets to customize your web pages further.

Most generated definitions can also be modified outside Web Designer. Cascading style sheets (CSS) are an important means of controlling generic look-and-feel of all your HTML-based pages, including the generated transactional web pages.
