users to create data-centric interactive websites, so called exhibits. Minimal setup efforts
quickly lead to a visual appealing results powered by AJAX features like live filtering, sorting
and grouping. When creating an exhibit, the user also can choose between various data
formats like spreadsheets, TSV or RDF/XML.
In “Creating interactive web pages using the Exhibit framework”, the reader will learn what
Exhibit is, how it works and how to create a first exhibit. The thesis also aims to list and
extend technical documentation, available on Exhibit. This is realized by providing a
complete listing of existing documentation resources and by using Exhibit itself to
demonstrate, how documentation available on Exhibit can be extended. Afterwards, the
demonstration of two real-world use cases shows, that Exhibit also fits into database-driven,
three-tier web applications.
Users of Exhibit without any programming skills may learn about the basic concepts in a
learning-by-doing process accompanied by source code examples and their explanation.
Developers familiar with web design technologies find a technical documentation reference
and additional examples of using Exhibit in diverse environments.
