Example ASP page from HCM

In HCM, the Web maps are used to launch different SQL queries against an underlying resource metadata base on the server (this is what we call "dynamic database links"). This PDF file lists the source code of the ASP page that retrieves all resources associated with E codes (ICD-9-CM) and then loops through the resultant recordset to format and display the results (resource bibliographic cards) in HTML (to see the page running, go to: http://healthcybermap.semanticweb.org/bodyviewer/e-codes.asp webcite).
