The web toolkit is a set of web-based techniques by which Active Club Solutionsʼ winery clients may offer their customers a number of online features:
member choice clubs (“allocations”) and futures
user account management
The HTML returned from the catalog script also determines the layout and format of the text within the embedded iframes, using a number of CSS classes. By modifying the associated style sheets, the designer can select alternate layouts and modify the iframesʼ appearance as needed to match the existing host site. Furthermore, the specific text of most fields within the frames is defined in the customerʼs database (Frame Configuration), where it can be modified as needed through Manager. (For example, to change a buttonʼs text from “Login” to “Log in.”)
Figure 1 illustrates the relationships among the web toolkit components and the host site.
To implement the toolkit features, the designer copies the appropriate code to a clientʼs web site, modifies a number of parameters to refer to the specific clientʼs database, and adds two sets of CSS styles to the host page. The exact method depends on the development environment in use; see Building the page.
