Question Postgresql - What is the best program to create 'End User' forms to access the DB

Am slowly making the move from end-user to trying to develop a few applications using Postgresql.

I have installed the DB ok and have used a combination of psql and SQL scripts to create the database, tables etc. This part now looks OK. All currently works on my laptop using Mandriva Spring 08 Powerpack

Where I am lost is what program to use to create forms etc so that other people can input / modify / delete data using a GUI than can give them access from all OS (Linux / Win etc). Preferably the forms / routines should be stored on the Linux machine to facilitate maintenance / updates etc with only a client on the other PCs

Does this exist ?

There are a number of options, assuming I understand what you're after:

You might want to consider a web interface rather than a traditional type compiled "application"

PHP and other web scripting languages have options for setting up and using forms etc to access a number of different database formats. All the code in on your web server, so changing and altering is easy.



interface, postgresql, user
