EiffelWeb Basic Sample
This sample shows how to retrieve and display information from a basic form on a web page.
To compile the example:
- Launch EiffelStudio.
- Click Add project
- Browse to $ISE_EIFFEL\examples\web\basic\.
- Choose web.ecf
- Choose the location where the project will be compiled, by default the same directory containing the configuration file.
- Click OK.
You should copy the file web_demo.exe in the cgi_bin directory of your web server and the file sample.html in a directory on the web server.
To run the example, access the page sample.html that you copied on the web server with a web browser (typically ''http://localhost/sample.html''). Fill in the text field with a username and click Submit. You should see a page displaying the name you just entered. Although not earth-shattering, this sample shows the basis for building more complex forms processing in Eiffel.
