open system architectureCuesta's OpenPages™ Web Site Technology

Cuesta’s unique "OpenPages Toolkit" allows us to quickly construct complex, interactive Web sites. "OpenPages" uses open systems and component architecture to construct e-commerce and business Web site solutions. "OpenPages" is a UNIX-based rapid application development environment that creates cookie-free, dynamically generated Web applications with database extensions. All solutions are independent of vendor-proprietary applications.

dynamically generated pagesNo Cookies!!

The Cuesta Web development system uses state-maintenance programming (without cookies), programmable, dynamically-generated Web pages with database extensions, a Web page component architecture, sophisticated forms technology, very detailed visitor tracking, a super-fast database search engine, and secure transaction processing. Want to know more about cookies? Here's what eHow and Cookie Central have to say about cookies.

Unlike competitors' products, OpenPages provides a comprehensive, integrated solution to the problem of creating commercial Web sites. Because it uses an Open Systems approach based upon industry-standard high level programming languages and widely-adopted technologies, OpenPages is not subject to the limitations of vendor-proprietary applications.
