Introduction
------------

    Gedafe (Generic Database Front-End) is an application independent
    end-user web front-end for databases. Application independant means,
    that the front-end doesn't have any information about the
    structure and contents of the database.

    The idea behind Gedafe is to put all the application logic
    into the database, along with meta-information on how to present
    the data. The front-end then gathers this information and uses it
    to build the user interface. This approach greatly reduces
    development time since you only have to develop the application at
    the database level and the web front-end comes for free.

    And there is more:
  
    * Gedafe uses a flexible templating system. It allows you
      customize the look of the user interface to a large degree.

    * Gedafe generated interfaces support "deep linking". This
      means that you can bookmark every page as it is presented.

    * At the moment Gedafe works only with PostgreSQL. But the
      structure of the application does not depend on PostgreSQL.

    * Gedafe is *NOT* yet another database-administration front-end
      with table editing ability. It is a real user interface.

Release Notes
-------------

    This is the first public version. The program has been used
    internally in a production environment for several months.

Availability
------------

    Gedafe is released under the GNU General Public License.
