The GNOME-DB project aims to provide a free unified data access architecture to the DebianGnome project. GNOME-DB is useful for any application that accesses persistent data (not only databases, but data), since it now contains a pretty good data management API.
GNOME-DB consists of the following components:
- ["mergeant"]: ["Frontend"] for database administrators and database application developers. Connections to any database supported by the Libgda library can be opened.
- ["libgnomedb"]: Database Widget Library. These widgets are integrated with the latest versions of glade.
- ["libgda"]: data abstraction layer. It can manage data stored in databases or XML files and it can be used by non-GNOME applications.
