About this book


Customize the SAS Stored Process web application to create amazing tools for end users. This book shows you how to use stored processes—SAS programs stored on a server and executed as required by requesting applications.

Never before have there been so many ways to turn data into information and build applications with SAS. This book teaches you how to use the web technologies that you frequently see used on impressive websites. By using SAS Stored Processes, you will be able to build applications that exploit CSS, JavaScript, and HTML libraries and enable you to build powerful and impressive web applications using SAS as the backend.

While this approach is not common with SAS users, some have had amazing results. People who have SAS skills usually do not have web development skills, and those with web development skills usually do not have SAS skills. Some people have both skills but are unaware of how to connect them with the SAS Stored Process web application. This book shows you how to leverage your skills for success.

You will:

  • Know the benefits of stored processes
  • Write your own tools in SAS
  • Make a stored process generate its own HTML menu
  • Pass data between stored processes
  • Use stored processes to generate pure JavaScript
  • Utilize data generated by SAS
  • Convert a SAS program into a stored process
