About rapid application development (all servers)
Rapid application development (RAD) is a software development process designed to make building applications easier and faster. RAD tools typically handle the details of a software project much like computer-assisted-design (CAD) tools take care of the details of drawing a wall or inserting a window in a building plan.
Dreamweaver is a RAD tool for website designers as well as web application developers. You can use Dreamweaver to build pages that search, insert, update, or delete records in a database. Dreamweaver handles the details of creating the pages; little or no coding is required from the developer. (Dreamweaver also provides a full-featured coding environment for developers who like to code all or part of their pages.)
