I just spent a half hour trying to figure out how to even launch this program. The tutorial is useless and the video files didn’t even run for me. I suppose I won’t be using this anytime soon.

It`s very easy. You only need to have Tomcat (or whatever java web container) on your computer.
Take the .war file and put it the tomcat directory ‘webapps’.
Then go to the tomcat directory bin and execute start.bat (for windows).
20 seconds later you can open your navigator and write:
http://localhost:8080/opentoro4

Best Regards from Spain!!

they need a new icon, (and remove ‘open’ from the name) if they want to compete with rails.

a nice shiny horned beast and a one-click .war file? where do i sign up :)

If you want a real easy web database development environment, you should take a look at Nenest, which enables you create database-driven web application without a single line code. It’s not open source, but it does offer a free option for individual users.
