Re: Mathematica Programming
Very interesting question. I have never been able to understand the promotional material for webMathematica. Can one run webMathematica from a standard user web site provided by an ISP? Or does one have to have one's own server setup, and what would that consist of? Where would the Mathematica engine that drives webMathematica actually reside? (It would be nice to have an answer that I could operationally understand and not in some jargon.) Is webMathematica something accessible for ordinary Mathematica users and developers, or is it ultimately a high priced institutional type application? Is it available to Premier subscribers? If I recollect correctly, there is a possibility that in the near future WRI will provide a way so that anyone can read a Mathematica notebook on line in a web browser. Would this include the use of active controls and be able to utilize private packages? Would this be an alternative to webMathematica? Lots of questions, but being able to communicate efficiently with people who don't presently have Mathematica is still the missing link.

Can I create full applications and interactive websites with Mathematica? How much control do I have over the user interface design?
