Open Source ASP Enterprise Manager in Design Phase

By Andy Warren,

A few weeks back Steve Jones sent me over a link about a product called ASP Enterprise Manager. I looked at it briefly but was too busy to really look into it, so tagged for follow up and kept trying to clear my inbox. Then not long after that I got an email from Wes Grant, the guy who is writing it asking a question about how EM gets the security information. Over the course of the email thread I got some information about the project that I wanted to pass on to all of you.

To start with, it's freeware and open source. You can view the source code at SourceForge (I have not looked at the source yet). The idea for the project originated because Wes had been using MyAdmin for MySQL and wanted something similar and web based for his SQL projects. Wes said he started small and then got more ambitious as he started to see how things went together. He's using .Net and is currently working out the details of what he wants to include and how to do it. Right now he is the only developer, but says that once he gets the final design done he would welcome the help of others - and I figured we might have a reader or two that would like to participate? Or beta test once it gets going? If so, you can contact Wes via his web site.

Please note that the product is in design only. If it makes it to release we'll do a review and tell you what we think, my goal is just to encourage open source where I can!

Would you rely on an open source/freeware tool to do administration? What features would it HAVE to have? Are you currently using any web based product to do administration? Post your comments!
