Support for cookie dictionaries
Cookie dictionaries are now fully supported, providing the following functionality :
Support for cookie domains
Cookie domains are now set by Dynamic-CD to the same value as the realm parameter set by Dynamic-CD-Wizard. This keeps cookies generated by different Dynamic-CDs separate.
If you try to set the domain parameter by hand :
the value will be ignored and a warning will be generated in debug mode.
Improved emulation of ASP
The compatibility between Dynamic-CD's ASP and ASP has been thoroughly checked. Dynamic-CD now runs large ASP sites (see below) without problems of compability. You should check that Dynamic-CDs created with previous versions run correctly with Version 2.6.
Tested on large ASP systems
With all the major features of ASP now being supported by Dynamic-CD's ASP, large websites such as COMERSUS e-commerce and SNITZ forum run under Dynamic-CD without modification.
Most ASP websites can now be transferred to Dynamic-CD without change.
Sites that use features not currently supported by Dynamic-CD can be easily modified (see Case Studies for examples).
Improved debug support
Dynamic-CD-Wizard now provides settings for running Dynamic-CD in debug or production mode.
In debug mode, Dynamic-CD now generates a log file including details of files served, scripts processed, parsing and run-time errors, and warnings. Use these details to track down development problems. In production mode, only fatal errors are shown to the user.
Support for Windows XP fast user switching
Basic support is now provided for Windows XP fast switching. Dynamic-CD uses resources that cannot be shared between users and so, when a fast user switch occurs, Dynamic-CD terminates cleanly.
Modified licence arrangements
We have modified our licensing arrangements so that for the same price, more CDs can be produced. Look at our licence and pricing details for further information.
Stop Dynamic-CD under script control
The Server.StopServer method terminates Dynamic-CD after all pending browser requests have been honoured. This is an automated alternative to informing the user to stop Dynamic-CD by clicking on the icon in the tray,
Minimal startup - using Dynamic-CD "in the background"
The Dynamic-CD-Wizard (Advanced Options) can be used to have the bowser display the startupURL direct from the CD. Dynamic-CD remains running in the background.
Use this facility to display pages from the CD without the intervention of Dynamic-CD. This technique allows you to structure your CD with a portion that does not need the functionality of Dynamic-CD and to call on Dynamic-CD only when needed.
If, for example, a given platform is not guaranteed to support the required Dynamic-CD functionality - vanilla Windows 95, say, does not support the Scripting.FileSystemObject - the CD can be structured so that only those portions that depend on Dynamic-CD functionality are unavailable on this more limited platform.
Swapping in and out of Dynamic-CD
To return to running without Dynamic-CD processing, call an HTML file as follows :
The new Request.ServerVariables( "ROOT_DIR_FILE_URL") value returns the file URL of the Dynamic-CD server root directory.
This value can be used to show a file directly from the CD without the
file being served by Dynamic-CD.
This value can be used in place of the code shown above in the previous section on "Minimal startup" :
In this example,
Request.ServerVariables( "ROOT_DIR_FILE_URL") + "/index.html"
No help screen on startup
The Dynamic-CD-Wizard (Advanced Options) can be used to suppress the Dynamic-CD helpScreen.
Dynamic-CD now starts by showing the first page in a new browser window, rather than by replacing the current browser page.
Modifed action on CD removal
If terminate on CD removal is checked (Dynamic-CD-Wizard's "Advanced Settings"), Dynamic-CD terminates on removal of the CD.
The flags terminateOnCDremoval and ignoreCDchange are mutually exclusive; if neither is checked, dialogs ask the user to re-insert the CD.
Custom features for professional licence holders
Dynamic-CD-Wizard now provides custom features for professional licence holders. On the "Advanced Settings" page,
