I am looking for a database developement system to use on a number of our sites. Actual requirements will vary according to the site, so it needs to be flexible and comprehensive.

I am not very 'techie' and don't have the time to learn masses of hand coding perl, PHP or even SQL.

Looking at whats available, I found Aborior Simplex. The docs make it seem 'within my grasp' technology wise. Also I can start using flatfile and move up to SQL when I get the time to master setting it up.

However, I am a little worried about devoting valuable learning time to a path using software which is an "unknown quantity".

Q1. Has anyone used this package, and if so, is it stable and 'bug free' ?

Q2. What proven alternatives are there?

thanks in anticipation

Since you are just starting out why not use Access? You don't want to get involved in flat files if you will be growing - start with SQL coding - it's one of the easiest things to learn.

Also, Dreamweaver UltraDev is great for beginners. Take the tutorials, study the code, then start copying.
