Evolutility.org 4.1

Overview & Concepts

Evolutility is a generic web user interface for CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) applications running on ASP.net, and SQL Server or MySQL. It is entirely metadata driven, and can adapt to different database structures. It may behave like an address book, a task list, a photo album, or anything you may want to build. It is ideal to quickly build functional components for database web applications or web site administration pages.

With Evolutility the user interface (e.g. fields titles, positions, visual groups, CSS classes) and its database mapping (e.g. tables, columns, stored procedures) are not defined in the code but in external metadata (stored as XML files or in the database). Evolutility web control can be nested into any ASP.net page. It will generate at run-time all necessary web forms, manage user interaction, and database CRUD (create, read, update, delete) operations automatically.

With Evolutility, these web forms are not physical pages anymore but simply different modes of the same page. Most of your application screens can be built by mapping different set of database tables to the former set of "virtual pages".
