Last month Microsoft released a browser-based tool for SQL Server, not unlike how phpMyAdmin works on top of MySQL:
"The SQL Server Web Data Administrator enables you to easily manage your SQL Server data, wherever you are. Using its built-in features, you can do the following from Microsoft Internet Explorer or your favorite Web browser:
- Create and edit databases in SQL Server 2000 or Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000)
- Perform ad-hoc queries against databases and save them to your file system
- Export and import database schema and data
- Manage users and roles
View, create and edit stored procedures"
It’s funny to see MS go browser-based at about the same time MySQL releases a full-fledged GUI management app, as if each party suddenly recognized the other side’s merits.
