The dbFront Story !

With more then 20+ years of working with databases it has always seemed that the process of creating a simple web application to edit that data should have been easier, but it never was. There was always the need for specialized knowledge and custom code. As the amount of custom code grew it became increasingly difficult and expensive to make additional changes.

We now use dbFront as the primary tool to support our clients. dbFront is a RAD (Rapid Application Development) tool, designed to take its direction from your database structure, security and data. dbFront monitors you database and automatically adjusts itself to meet any changes.

Fully Responsive.

Support for everything from a small smartphone to a 4K monitor and beyond. dbFront draws its screens dynamically using responsive design principles to accommodate a wide variety of screen sizes and shapes. This allows you to use dbFront on a touch screen tablet, a smartphone or a desktop without any extra effort.

MySQL, SQL Server and Oracle.

dbFront includes deep support for three of the most popular database servers with more to come.

Fully Themeable.

Designed to use jQuery UI which comes built-in with a range of themes. In addition you can easily modify the existing themes using the jQuery ThemeRoller. If those two options are not enough then you can find other great themes created by third-parties.


dbFront supports all major web browsers including current versions of Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari and IE versions 10 and 11. As the web standards evolve we are committed to ensuring that dbFront stays current so that you don't have to deal with the issues.


dbFront includes a simple but effective Template Based reporting system. The Templates are based on HTML, CSS and Javascript. Using these templates, users and administrators can very quickly create basic reports such as product listings or invoices.

Layered Security.

Every install of dbFront includes multiple levels of baked in security. Split installs with DMZ support to protect the application server. Windows and Database Authentication to control user access. User Profiles to further limit database access. Vetted web requests and Parameterized SQL to block hacking attempts. Field Constraints to protect data integrity. Row Level Security to protect individual records. Table and Database Security to ensure the connection is not abused, and more...

    Great product for a low price vs the competition. dbFront has been a crucial piece in my push to redesign the way our engineering department views and updates test data across our worldwide SQL footprint.
