Web-powered databases (WPDB) refer both to databases accessible through the Web and to their underlying architecture. This chapter concerns this architecture. It presents the low-level implementation of a WPDB mock-up. The claim which supports the chapter is that this low level analysis can facilitate the understanding of the fundamental mechanisms embedded in a WPDB. All the components of the mock-up, except the Web server itself, are coded in C++. This will illustrate how the techniques such as Internet connections, multitasking, multithreading, and named pipes can be used to develop a WPDB architecture. Moreover, beyond its explanatory aim, the present chapter offers a very practical issue as the C++ codes can be used as a guideline or even more reused as is for the development of more complex WPDBs.
