Mnesia Web Interface for O&M and Customer Care

Inets works fine for the sort of O&M activity you are talking about. We use
a modified version of Joe's Erlang Server Pages (esp.erl attached) which
stores the page templates in mnesia itself.
The idea is to have an erlang callback using the mod_erl inets mechanism
which can pass data into the esp page to make a dynamic page.
a trivial example for http://localhost:8080/cgi-bin/erl/test/page
<http://localhost:8080/cgi-bin/erl/test/page>  would be:
page(_,_) ->
    Dynamic_content = "Sean",
    esp:expand("test_page.esp", [{"my_data", Dynamic_content}]).
test_page.esp could look something like:
  Name: ${my_data}
This is what we do for all our config pages including customer provisioning
for a full blown VPN IN service.

Subject: Mnesia Web Interface for O&M and Customer Care



We are implementing a Mnesia database, for mobile prepaid accounts. Now, we
need to implement both O&M and customer's care graphical modules. And we
would prefer them to be web based interfaces. The web interface would be
used to retrieve and update prepaid accounts data from the Mnesia accounts
database. How would you recommend us to make the web to mnesia interface? Is
there anything already implemented, that would help, as inets?
