In last month's article, "Developing Applications with Oracle HTML DB, Part 1," we set up a rudimentary HTML DB application and deployed it to our workspace. To highlight the ease in which any developer, or non-developer with minimal SQL skills, could build something useful with this tool, we stuck to the basics. We used wizards to build the initial application based upon an employee table, then we made a few modifications. For example, we modified our report's query to display more useful information and included a pop-up list of values for form field lookups, all to improve the user's experience. In this article, we'll continue where we left off and add some additional features that real-world applications might require. If you have not read last month's article, please do so before continuing.
