You can do the same thing with Radicore (http://www.radicore.org) - build
your database, import it into the data dictionary, export it to create the
basic List/Search/Create/Read/Update/Delete transactions. All withut writing
a single line of HTML, SQL or even PHP. You can customise these scripts to
your heart's content
As an added bonus you get a Role Based Access Control (RBAC) system, Audit
Logging, Workflow, Single or Two Factor Authentication for user logons, PDF
forms generation, and a whole host of other goodies.
