Hi Claude, thanks for answering me. :-)
MamboServer is a very nice CMS which basically has a "component"
architecture...you can install, uninstall or create your components.
Example: I could create a "CartoMambo" component...so when users pointo to
"Maps" link on the application( which should be something like
"/index.php?option=com_cartomambo¶m1=xxx¶m2=yyyy..." ) the file "
cartomambo.php" should be included from "components" directory.
Mambo has its own functions to handle inputs(get/post...it also filter data
againts xss, injections...) and also a database API to run SQLs.
Could I be able to insert "carto client" code inside this component file?
How does cartoclient interface widgets are handled? As pre-defined .html
files? such as mapserver and chameleon does?
