The BEE Language and the Portal Object effectively turn a website into an operating platform, and rightly so.
On an operating system, such as Windows, you can create new documents, create shortcuts that click into documents, change system settings and install new programs. You can have different users logging in with their passwords to open protected documents and do various things depending on their assigned access right.
A website should be no different: you should be able to create pages on the fly, create links and menu items to click to pages, change the website settings and install applications such as a contact form or a shopping cart, or any BEE applications you may having written.
With the BEE Portal Object, this "living website" scenario is a reality: You can login to your website and edit the pages and menus, change site settings and install applications, in the same way you do your computer.
