GlobalNetix.com: Programming

                                  




   All projects are undertaken at an hourly rate of $65.00 per hour. An estimate is given before the project is started so that you know the cost range. This is however only an estimate and any changes made to the original specification will increase the end cost. For new programs 33% of the estimated price is payable when a prototype is delivered. An additional 33% is payable as various components of the program are delivered. The remaining fee is payable when the final program is delivered in compiled format.

   For modifications to existing programs, the hourly rate is $50.00 per hour. If you do not have the source code, the program will be treated as a new program. If you have the source code (this is the case with dBASE 3 Programs) the total hours required will be substantially reduced resulting in cost savings for you.

JavaScript

   It is based on Java, and is mostly syntactically compatible, but differs from Java in that it is interpreted, rather than compiled, only supports built certain built-in objects and user-defined functions, rather than full support for user-defined classes with inheritence and methods, is integrated with HTML, rather than invoked from HTML files and dynamically bound. JavaScript is meant to extend HTML to be more of a full programming language. JavaScript is well suited for Interactive forms Navigational systems, Rollover images, Counters, Site Search and Banner Ads.

Java

   Java is the leading contender for a full feature programming language targeted at Internet applications. Its advantages are: familiarity (derived from C++), platform independence (will run on any platform which implements the Java Virtual Machine), performance (byte-code compiled faster than fully interpreted), and safety (downloaded applets are checked for integrity, and only interpreted by trusted Virtual Machine).

CGI (Common Gateway Interface)

   A Web daemon executes a CGI program on the server and returns the results to the client (e.g. a query against a database server), rather than simply returning a copy of the referenced file, as it does with an HTML reference. Parameters are passed from the server to the CGI program as environment variables. The program is sometimes written in C, C++, or some other compiled programming language, but more often it is written in a scripting language (e.g. Perl, Tcl, sh). To prevent damage to the server, CGI programs generally are stored in a protected directory under the exclusive control of the webmaster.

Perl

   Perl is described as a compiled scripting language. It combines elements of C with some Unix scripting and text manipulation languages (e.g. sh, awk, sed) into a more complete language that subsumes the functionality of all into one consistent whole, and is compilable, and, therefore faster than its forebears.

  •    GlobalNetix specializes in full life-cycle application development. We add considerable value to our customers' applications with our detailed development team, our mature software development process and our object-oriented approach to application development. Together with your employees, we provide requirements analysis, data design, program design, project management, program development, training and documentation.

    Design

       From where you are to where you want to be, GlobalNetix initiates a software project by working with clients to model both what their current processes and workflows, and their future needs once a database management (DBMS) solution has been developed.

       In the design phase we use guided interviews with key personnel, studying current paper flows to analyze the relationships between activities, looking at how information flows from one office to the next, from one person to others then prepare a detailed requirement analysis for the DBMS. This analysis is the guide for the final design, and contains all necessary elements, activities and relationships. Hardware and networking requirements are also established during design, so that our clients have a clear understanding of all the resources that will ultimately be required for a working system.

    Development

       In creating a custom DBMS solution, we use the rapid prototype development process to build software in carefully-determined stages. Each stage is reviewed with the client to ensure that work stays on schedule and allows the client to monitor progress and make last-minute changes as the package takes shape. In this iterative process, we rely on the tools available in the programming environment, as well as other third-party tools, for fast user interface development.

       Before releasing the completed software, our QA testing completely exercises the new database, ensuring that all functions work as designed. Then, complex "what-if" scenarios are prepared to test for potentially troublesome combinations of events. The result is a DBMS that is intuitive, friendly, logical, and well-suited to solve specific problems.

    Documentation

       GlobalNetix creates both printed and on-line documentation. Because our goal is functional, friendly and intuitive software, our staff makes sure that the documentation is easy to access, understandable, and accurate.

    Maintenance

       After a software project has been completed and delivered, GlobalNetix offers continuing support services. Complete helpdesk capabilities, including hotline telephone support and troubleshooting, are provided by technical experts. In addition, we track the problems encountered by users and makes this information available to the programming team charged with improving the software. This team models enhancements in a new design phase, beginning the life cycle management process for a new version of the software.
