Oracle announced yesterday that its Project WebDB tool, the techno-idiot's tool for building web pages and self-service websites, is available for public beta tests.
Wizard-driven, Oracle claims it is suitable both for novice developers and sophisticated power users: "[It is] a tool for the rest of us", said Sohaib Abbasi, senior vice president of Oracle Tools Division, adding: "Project WebDB is the easiest way to build data driven web pages and self service web sites."
To develop and deploy applications, users need a Web browser and a connection to an Oracle database. Project WebDB will provide the tools that generate dynamic HTML forms, charts, reports and menus, alongside tools and management services to create self-service web sites.
It is available through the Oracle Technology Network at technet.oracle.com.
