Morning all,
I was wondering what front ends people are using?
I'm aware that I can use MS Access but would prefer to use a web based front end, does this mean that I need to brush up on my Java ?
Cheers, M

All our user front ends are done in ASP.NET 4, but as long as you can code a connection string to SQL in the application, then you can pretty much use whatever coding language you want.

We have a mixture here of .NET 2 / 3.5 and 4, as well as MS Access. All works fine.

Do you mean a front-end to manage the SQL Server itself or an application front-end that uses SQL Server as the database?

If the latter, we use mostly .net 4.0 using vb.net and c#. The former would be SSMS exclusively.

There are several other products out there some use instead of SSMS. TOAD for SQL Server is one, and I know there are a few others even if I don't remember the names of the products.

At this current position we use SSMS mostly, though some of the developers use SQuirreL for query design etc.. The application itself is written in java using hibernate.

Cheers Mark, I use SSMS to manage SQL directly, I was thinking more along the lines of an easy to use (preferably muppet proof ) front end app for Jo Schmo to use to input data.

Check out Microsoft Lightswitch. It's great for creating a basic CRUD front end application (web or fat-client).

Just point it to a database and off it goes - I created a front end to a system in about 5 minutes. It understands constraints and data types even to the point of placing pop up calenders where it encounters a date field.
