1. Overview

Edit-DB provides a web browser interface to easily view and edit database data, and view an edit other standard database objects for Oracle, MS SQL Server, MySQL, Postgre, IBM DB2, IBM Series i (iSeries, AS/400) and HSQLDB databases.

Edit-DB is fully compatible with Internet Explorer and Firefox web browsers.

Edit-DB is hosted within a servlet container such as Apache Tomcat or Resin. Installation of Edit-DB on the server is simply to drop the application .war file into Apache Tomcat's or Resin's webapps directory.

Giving a user access to Edit-DB is as simple as informing them of the url, by default http://yourserver:8080/EditDB, and providing them with the name of the database server and a userid and password.
