on Mon, 22 Aug 2016 16:22:52 +0200
Hello friends.
I have tried to see how works CXP with IIS and when I do
http://localhost/cxpinfo.cxp, is visualized an error HTTP 404.3
Why ?
I have the websamples inside of inetpub\wwwroot and toot cxpinfo.cxp
Thanks.
César.

Hi César,

1) Make sure you are working with Windows 7 or higher.
2) Ensure that you have turned on the following Windows features as per 
Alaska's instructions below.



Open the Control Panel and select the item Programs. Under Programs and 
Features select Turn Windows features on or off. Then accomplish 
following steps. Please follow strictly the order below:

A) Ensure that the item Internet Information Service is selected. If 
this is not the case select the item Internet Information Service.

B) Also make sure that support for CGI executables is enabled which also 
enables the FastCGIModule. The feature CGI can be found in the feature 
tree on the following location:

	=> Internet Information Services
		=> World Wide Web Services
			=> Application Development Features
				=> CGI



3) Then I would uninstall CXP , restart computer then reinstall cxp ; 
this must be the last step.


I hope this helps.

Kind regards
Nestor

Many thanks dear Nestor.
Now yes with IIS when I have unistalled CXP and again installed it.
Is neccesary to learn javascript for view contents of databases or with the 
features of CXP together with source code would be enought?
Regards.
César.

Hi César,

Glad to see that you got your cxp pages working ...

Back in 2012 when cxp first came out their was little or no 
documentation for cxp; and I believe till today it is the same.

But I think that Alaska will be showing off their newest release
at the up and coming conference and that may contain a lot
more documentation and information on how to utilize cxp, to its
potential. Also their will probably be lots of speakers
talking and demonstrating the power of cxp.

I have taken a very different approach in how to use cxp from what 
Alaska has shown in their examples...I use it mainly for data access and 
data manipulation. I also use it to build dynamic htlm which I pass to 
calling javascript/jQuery modules that then inject the resulting html, 
constructed by my CXP programs, into the DOM.

So in my case I have made lots of use of Jquery/jquery-ui/javascript and 
css plus a host of other javascript libraries. And CXP has been the
manipulator of data and creator of dynamic html.

You can view the results of my efforts by visiting 
www.jumboentertain.com and www.starlightdemo.com
there are now other sites that are also using my
starlite web app : www.toplineonline.co.za and www.redboxpinetown.co.za

And the back-end for starlite is RAPS found at www.softwareclinic.co.za

Kind regards
Nestor
I am happy I could be of some help.

Nestor, then if I make an aplication with CXP:
What are the files that I have to install in the computer of my customer?
All files in C:\inetpub\wwwroot.
I mean if inside of this the files must be copy the files that are in 
C:\Program Files (x86)\Alaska Software\cxp20\bin

Could you explain me the steps?
The cxp files must be converted to a dll files?

Sorry because I am new with this?

Thanks.
César.

Cesar,

There are many things that need to be thought-out for a cxp  application 
before it can be seen by the outside world. Luckily I do not think its 
to hard.

1) you must install just the alaska cxp component as you have done on 
your computer onto your customers computer.
2) you must move all your developed cxp code into the cxp root folder 
(this is the way I have been doing it since there has been no clear 
indication of how to do it otherwise...maybe there is a better way). 
Note that CXP modules will automatically be recompiled when they are 
first accessed so you do not need to move cxp dll files from your 
computer. Do not forget that any javascript that you have developed and 
Libraries used must also be moved to your customers folders or pointed 
to where they reside on the World Wide Web.
3) you must also setup virtual directories within IIS that point to your 
Alaska xBase dbf files. CXP uses these virtual directories to access 
your data.
4) Then you must configure the router to point to your listening IIS 
computer. And setup the routers firewall to allow access from the 
outside world. And their is also the setting up of your domain; example 
www.examplecustomer.com must be associated to the IP address of the 
customers computer and of course registered with a domain service provider.

There are a few things to learn but in the end it is worth it. 
unfortunately I can not teach via email, but I hope that the few hints I 
am providing will help you find your path.

If you attend the conference you may find a better way of setting up a 
customers computer. At the moment this is working for me.

Kind Regards,
Nestor

Great Nestor.
I am agree with you, the documentation should be improved and completed (in 
fact I have said this to Alaska Team).
I hope in the next conference the speakers provide all possible knowledge 
for this technologie because it can be very interesting to develop 
applications.
Thnaks.
César.
