MyBusiness uses an enterprise class database for storing product content, user authentication, and blogs to create a dynamic web site. The standard database is PostgreSQL, the world's most advanced open source database, although almost any database with JDBC drivers can be used.
Content Management is performed online through a set of administration pages and forms.
Products can be listed by category and search results. List pages contain thumbnail images that zoom when hovered over. Detail pages are displayed from database information stored with the product data. Products can be set to 'web sell', 'out of stock', or 'call for availability' that update on the product pages.

This is accomplished using files with key-value pairs for each language you want to support.

The key is used in the web page code and the value is displayed to the user based on their browser language setting.
