Hi Here is my 2cents I will not use GET. If you want to pass a db name i would use POST. Because if you don't do something with the statusbar the the user can see the dbname if you use GET and i don't think that is a good thing. I'm working on an webbased app with a lot of db work and i learnt "Don't trust the user" not even if it is just the intranet.
