I'm stuck at a customer site with restrictions where I can't have an app server, or a database to use for anything 'semi-permanent'.
I would like to publish a web page with a list of servers and stati on it.
Since the data could change, I'd like to keep in a db, but I cant, so I"m wondering, being the java scriptless wonder that I am, how I could 'easily' put a browser page together that will run a limited display of servers and stati, and keep the 'data' in some text/xml file so it wil be easy for non html people to access if they need to update the status of their server.
So I'd like it to look like a table. Maybe 10 cells (2 rows of 5 perhaps), each with:
database connection (yeah it is for developers mostly)
current status (i.e. has xxx level / release on it)
responsible person or last person to update the cell
I just want, say in the same directory, a text or xml file that has the data for the cells.
A user (like me perhaps) can update the text or xml file and have the table be updated next time
someone pops in with their safari/explorer/firefox/whateber browser.
