Abstract
Web and Database Interaction is one of the growing trends in Web-site creation. This interaction can facilitate the needs of the online community in various ways. Until now databases were only used to hold large amounts of information needed for certain applications. Many of these applications are nowadays Web-based. The constant interaction that is needed by them is very demanding in terms of computer resources. In this paper we propose a technique that can reduce the amount of resources needed to run these demanding applications. We also introduce an alternative model according to which databases can be used for many other purposes in the process of Web and Database interaction.
