iDriver Source Code Release

Marc writes: "iDriver is an open-source (GPL) PHP framework for developing database-oriented web applications. It currently supports MySQL only, but will likely be ported to other database systems. iDriver makes writing database-oriented applications easy by providing a powerful, extensible set of user interface components. These components provide highly functional user interfaces, with a high level of security checking.

iDriver has been developed by Jared Davis, under the auspices of the University of Nebraska at Omaha Library, and is currently in use at the Library to power numerous patron service applications. The first iDriver-based application, the Research Wizard Editor System, received the American Library Association Gale Group Award for Excellence in Reference and Adult Library Services for 2001, and was cited as 'An excellent example of how professional expertise and technology can be merged.'"

There are doing as much directly for our community as any other company there is. Check out their stuff... it works.

When your book finally comes back it can be 'returned', removing it from the table." You can find it at the phpBookLoan site. And while you're there, check out phpCDTracker...
