It is therefore accessible to web programmers regardless of the platform with which they choose to work. The platforms supported include (but are not limited to) Perl or PHP with CGI, C# with ASP.NET, and Java servlets. As well as developing web programming as a platform independent endeavour, this book looks at the strong mathematical basis that this approach admits. It shows how the functionality of web applications can be specified in a formal symbolic language, and how their implementations can be verified against such specifications in a manner entirely analogous to mathematical proof.
