Subject Re: OT: plugin for web access to a relational database

Don,

Have you looked at Ruby on Rails.  It is a Java based enviroment, but you do
not
need to know Java to use it. (My understanding of it).  It is a quick and
dirty way
to get things running.  I am looking at it for a site that I would like to
get up.
