Default Suggestions for GUI level?


Hi...As an introduction, I run a small boutique software house that
develops and sells a library automation package that runs on the Lotus
Notes platform called NOTEbookS (http://www.rasco.com). We are lookng
to expand our customer base and are considering a new version of the
product that will be entirely Notes free. I'm considering MySQL as the
database layer.

A library automation system is 1/3 database and 2/3 workflow (or so I
perceive). I am so used to forms, views and agents in Notes that I'm
having a problem getting my arms around the GUI level that I need to
use. I know I will need to support XML, both as a transaction layer and
as a listener layer. I'm considering VisualStudio, but hate to have to
burden the future customers with a .net license in order to use it. I
don't think we need the transaction integrity of ACID or anything like
that (but we could use it for some kind of a 2-phased commit procedure
in the case of reserves, I suppose). There will be at least 3 levels of
security (admin, library staff and end user). Also, I'd like to store
rich text in the database (video, ebooks, URL links, pdfs, etc). Any
problem with this in MySQL?

Any suggestions on a GUI writer would be appreciated.
Thanks!

I don't think the .NET license costs anything. You just install the .NET
framework for free. It comes with XP anyway. Even the .NET SDK is free.

Something else I think is worth looking at is wxPython. It is free and
cross-platform, just like MySQL.

wxPython has the best demo program I have ever seen. It will take you a
while to run all the individual feature demos but I think you will be very
impressed well before you get to the end. And of course there is also the
best named software utility for generating Python apps, Boa-Constructor!

I haven't actually tried wxPython yet but plan to.

Here are some links.

http://www.wxwindows.org
http://www.python.org
