Data Crow: development of web client

The current web client was created in 2008 as a pilot. Since this is now 5 years ago we can safely say the pilot period has been concluded. From an user perspective it is a rather simple interface for searching and registering items. Technically the basic functionality is working quite well; the forms and overviews are generated dynamically based on the settings of the administrator.

There are however enough points on which the application can be improved:
- The web client cannot be run on any other web server and is also using GUI parts of the Data Crow full client in the background.
- The web server cannot run in headless environments (no monitor present).
- The functionality is very limited, only basic registration is available.
- Some bugs which are still there.... read more
