    web based database

    I'm looking for a way to write a web based database.
    I'm familar with Oracle 10g SQL and PL/SQL.
    What would be the easiest way to do this?
    I heard you can make web forms for the database, but have been unable to find anything additional on it.
    I'm looking for easy and efficient way to host a website that has a web accessable database that will hold primative data and larger files. If you have a tutorial that would be much appreciated.
    Thanks.

    using visualbasic .net, ado.net, and asp.net can you create a webaccessable database?
    can you link ado.net with actionscript?

    Yes, it's possible, but the amount of work involved with creating a database with visualbasic or some other tool is better spent learning php. There are easy ways to get started, though. This is probably not what you're looking for, but it serves as a good example of a web-based database: Wordpress. Wordpress is a blogging tool, but it makes good use of php and mysql databases. I originally started using it "just to create a simple blog", and now I even know php and mysql (well, not quite, but I like to think so )!

    On the other hand, there is very little documentation for building a web-based database with VisualBasic, or whatever, so if you like to learn by reading the manual, php is probably the best way to go.

    Hold the phone... you want to create a database? Or you want to connect to and USE a database on the web? There's a difference.

    I'd suggest using MySQL because it's going to be hard to find a host that has Oracle installed and available. PHP is probably your best best for a language unless you want to work with that god-awful ASP crap.
    EntropySink. You know you have to click it.

    You should have a look at ASP.NET 2.0. It's a million miles away from good old ASP
