integration

In the context of web development, integration is the process of connecting an information structure such as a database, or information processing system (back-end) to a visual template or interface (front-end).

If an information processing system, for example a blog publishing tool, has an existing visual template, integration involves changing this template. This process is often referred to as ‘re-skinning’; or creating a new ‘skin’.

Related terms: CMS, default, front-end/back-end, GUI, interface, look-and-feel, MySQL.
