Implementation

Professional Application Development only at Avans Technologies Inc.

Implementation is the process of building the web according to its design. A web implementor creates hypertext markup language (HTML), Common Gateway Interface (CGI) programs, and/or Java scripts and/or applets.

The implementation process resembles software development because it involves using a specific syntax for encoding web structures or a programming language in a formal language in computer files. Although there are automated tools to help with the construction of HTML documents, a thorough grounding in HTML enriches the web implementor's expertise.

Key Implementation Practices

  • At the outset, create an extendible directory and file structure to manage the web's files and/or software components (CGI or Java programs).
  • Use HTML tools where helpful.
  • Check the web's implementation in various browsers.
  • Use templates or web generating schemes for supporting a consistent look and feel.
