I apologize if this is request is far off the scope of the site:
Is there any interest in a "stairway" for the hand-off of HTML5 forms to SQL database? I know there are tons of frameworks out there that address this - each with pros and cons, varying levels of complexity, and often horrible backward compatibility. Companies fortunate enough to have full-time programmers (in addition to DBAs) can leverage these frameworks quite well, but somewhere between the needs for using something like MS Access and creating an elaborate Entity Framework web app, there seems to be a middle ground missing (or not discussed). Is it just "use PHP"?

I'm wondering if there's anything as "pure" or close to standards as possible that could be taught here in terms of "okay, we've taught you how to create a database, here's a simple, future-stable way to submit data into it".

Thanks!

SQL Server Central has a "cousin-site" (not quite as close as a sister site, but still pretty close) at www.simple-talk.com. Both sites are owned by RedGate. Simple-Talk has a lot of outside-the-scope-of-the-database material on it. Might be a suggestion over there. And the two sites do cross-link articles sometimes. Might be better to suggest it there.

I'm not sure there's a stairway here, but we'll debate it. The stairways were designed to get you up to speed on certain SQL Server technologies. This is near the limit of that, but if we don't do one, I'll pass this along to Simple Talk as an idea.

You guys are great.

I'm surprised they haven't rolled in "native" support in MS SQL for receiving simple form based input: I got my hopes up when SQL 2008 R2 came out with the native Report Server Web Service instead of requiring IIS infrastructure.

I get it's not the best solution for every scenario, and I get the separation of function argument, but for simple apps it is truly a pest to stay on top of syntax and future compatibility for (e.g.) an OS, IIS, ASP.Net, MVC, and Entity Framework version stack all to collect a few tables worth of data.

Having a simpler hand-off from browser to SQL would make my life easier.
