Working when you don't have access to your database

If you use a large, server-based database like Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle 9i, you can still work on your dynamic pages in Macromedia Dreamweaver MX even if you don't have access to the database (for example, at home, on the train to work, or on a business trip). Macintosh users, who must often work with databases deployed on networked servers, can also benefit from this ability. This tutorial describes how to build dynamic pages in Dreamweaver MX when you don't have access to your database server.
