    You will have to define, create a website. I myself use Scriptcase to create applications that need to be accessed over the internet as a web app. If I want to create a website, then I would suggest looking at Joomla (It also uses PHP, MySQL, etc). If you then need to have your SC application available in the website, use the wrapper function in Joomla to load your app.

    Regards,
    Scott.

      Thanks Scott,
      As you mentioned , SC is good for developing a web application which is accessible over the internet for a company. But I can't build a whole commercial website like ebay,amazon to mention few with SC.

        I agree with Scott. I also have a customer that wanted a website and a web app. You'll need two tools for this: SC and a CMS, for example joomla.

        @Scott: this is the first time I heard about a Joomla wrapper for SC. Can you tell me where I can find this wrapper (and hopefully documentation?).
        I'm developing a joomla website and SC application at te moment. The SC applications are being called from webpages. This works fine, but I'm struggling with login and security. Is this wrapper build in a way that I can control acces to SC applications using only joomla login/authorization? Thanks.

          The built in wrapper is a menu option. There are also some extension I believe. There is no direct link that I am aware of using the Joomla wrapper, but I would think a well designer wrapper extension would perhaps allow for this.

          My initial thoughts on this ....

          -Only allow access to registered users that load the Joomla Wrapper Menu Item
          -You already have access to the db, use SC to access the table for Joomla users and bypass any SC5 login requirements
          -If you need to provide limited access to registered users, then compare the md5 hash created for Joomla users with the one added to your SC5 user table. If they match, proceed past the login. Users with no hash are not allowed in and sent to the login screen. (or something along this line)

          You may have to perform some behind the scenes coding, but after all.. they are both just PHP.

          Extensions that may be of help:
          http://extensions.joomla.org/extensi...ode-in-modules
          http://extensions.joomla.org/extensi...ode-in-content
          http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/search/password (several extensions mention how they bypassed multiple logins)

          Regards,
          Scott.

            Thanks Scott for extending your knowledge...

            I'm also thinking of building a website with web app..., with the use of both SC and Joomla....

            I'm a newbie in Joomla..., and so far I enjoyed working on it as it is easy to use and manipulate...

            Hope to see existing sites using SC and Joomla so somehow I would have the idea.

            Thanks.

                  There is a tutorial about how JScriptcase integrates Joomla with Scriptcase:

                    I am currently using JScriptCase. It's a little early to tell how it's going to work for me, but I am happy so far.

                    It's fairly new so they are working some kinks out, but they have been very good answering any questions that I've had so far.

                    For me, JScriptCase is probably a keeper.

                      The Wrapper contains the app in the template which it makes it a bit small. The external link menu dispenses with the template and uses the whole page. Just thought Id say that. Also make sure the username and login for the database is exactly the same as in the config.php in the joomla base folder. Just found that out. by and by Scriptcase rocks

                          I use jScriptCase for quite a while. It is OK, but I'm not very impressed. The developmet and upgrades are rare, and the developer told me he has not manu sales so no motivation to improve the software. Licensing (per site sucks), and at the moment my component is having issues with the Menus so I use Joomla menus only. There are also some issues with look and feel (templates). The major problem is sharing users database.
                          SC does not provide easy access to Joomla passwords, so you would have to use either 3rd party library or develop HASHin yourself and implement it in SC project. I would be happy if there are some developers willing to create some tools for SC. The problem is that at this stage SC is very closed tool It does not allow to create add-ons. This is a big downside, otherwise it would allow people to add libs and have SC grow much faster. They should at least release some SDKs.
