Server-Side Validation Languages

  • It is always best to add form field validation on the server side
  • This validation catches any errors that are not caught by client-side validation
  • You can use any of the following languages to add server-side form validation
  • That is beyond the scope of this course
  • The languages are ColdFusion, PHP, JSP, ASP.NET, and ASP

Transcription: Server-Side Validation Languages

I want to let you know about some of the different ways that you can set up server-side validation for your forms, and also let you know what languages are available in order to do that.0000

Basic HTML pages only allow you to work with Javascript in order to add client-side validation.0015

But what types of languages are available to add server-side validation?0024

Actually creating the scripts and working with those server-side languages is a bit beyond the scope of this course, because we are focusing on the Dreamweaver piece.0029

However, I just want to make you aware that there are 5 different server-side languages you can use.0040

And if I go up to File, New, those server-side languages are listed right here; so I thought I would point them out to you.0047

First of all, there is ASP, and there is ASP with Javascript or with VB script.0056

VB script is a Microsoft scripting language that came out about the same time, or a little after, Javascript.0064

And Microsoft was trying to create their own scripting language that was available to use with ASP.0072

So, ASP is the server-side language; these two are the scripting languages that you could use.0080

In other words, you could create ASP pages in one of two ways: working with Javascript or with VB script.0086

Most people now are in the Javascript piece; VB script isn't as popular as it used to be--Javascript is really the standard--but there were two ways to do it.0095

Now, you also have ASP.NET using C# or ASP.NET using Visual Basic; and the VB stands for Visual Basic.0107

It is a very similar situation: we reference this one as classic ASP and this one as .NET.0120

The other languages you have available to create server-side scripting or form field parsing or processing of form information is ColdFusion.0129

Now, ColdFusion is an Adobe server-side language, and that is one of the subjects that I am also Adobe certified in.0141

But ColdFusion is one of the server-side languages created by, actually, somebody other than Adobe; but Adobe has since acquired them.0150

JSP is another type of language: it stands for Java Server Pages, and that uses the Java language; and PHP is another very popular server-side language.0162

If you have heard of WordPress or Drupal or Joomla, those are all written in the PHP server-side language.0176

But in case you can't remember what those server-side languages are that are available, I wanted to point out that there is a nice listing of them here within Dreamweaver.0186

If you just go to File, New, and click on Blank Page, they are listed right here as the various options for working with server-side code, that you can use to add the server-side form validation, and also the form-processing scripts for taking the data the user enters into the form and doing something with it (such as emailing it or inserting it into a database).0197

Those are the different server-side languages that are available.0225

They are well beyond the scope of this course, but I at least wanted to give you a listing of what those are, so that you are familiar with the names of them.0229

And you can see, you have 5 different options for working with server-side languages.0239

Thanks for watching; see you in the next lesson!0245
