nuBuilderPro (nuBuilder 3) has been completely written from the ground up. nuBuilderPro now relies on Ajax and JSON to communicate between the client’s browser and the server via an API.
With support for other databases using PHP’s PDO (PHP Data Objects)
nuBuilder is a type of software called CRUD which stands for the database activities, Create, Read, Update and Delete.
Two Screen Model
CRUD is implemented by nuBuilder using a two screen model. With all activities being achieved with either a Browse Screen or an Edit Screen.
The browse screen (see below) displays a listing of records. It is designed allow users to easily manage a large amount of records, through allowing the user to sort the list by clicking on the title to sort by, and through filtering the list through the text search feature above the listing. The fields displayed on the list are fully customisable to allow the right information to be displayed to assist in finding a particular record.
The edit screen uses tabs to efficiently display a lot of information for a particular record. This means that while the browse screen gives you a list of records, with a limited amount of fields to help you select the right record, the edit screen can give you a complete view of a particular record and get the information you need easily.
