Have you used it with MySQL or just Oracle? I looked at their site and 
it only mentions Oracle.

Yes, I know. I'll offer that as a possibility, but it isn't quite the 
same as a non-Web app.  There's MySQLCC also that I'll check out, but 
I'd like to hide stuff more from users, a la Access.

Wasn't there a database that came with StarOffice? Adabas? When I do a 
search on it it seems like it's not open source?
