Nautilus is a tool for developers, advanced users and auditors.
The main objetive is to find information in a SQLServer database without knowing too much about the database. User can search tables and records with no SQL knowledge required.
You can also browse related data following the foreign key links.
Product won't handle integrated security. Requires SQL Server login.
Unable to use the product because "Page cannot be displayed" errors in application.
It´s true, the tool requires knowing database connection info.
But once loged in you can find tables (sometimes you don´t remember exact name), then click over it and see its data and structure, then locate a record filtering data, then pivot a record, see its complete info and follow the foreign keys "paths" to the records it refers to and see which records refer it. A diferent feature is finding a value in any record of any table which only sometimes is needed (this is the "google data" option).
I know that if you give it a try you won't be disappointed.
I did give it a try. All I got was "page cannot be displayed" errors.
blindman, I'm very sorry about your problems. I would like some clues about your environment (sqlserver version, xp version, and more).
I can only guess that you have c:\nautilus\nautilus\ in your disk and you created the virutal dir to c:\nautilus instead of c:\nautilus\nautilus. There is always a confusion making zip files. I'll explain it better in next readme file.
If anybody else on the forum tried this software, I encourage them to report their experiences.
By the way, marcoscasa, are you sure you can legally use the verb "google" to advertise your application? Has the term passed into the public domain? It implies that there is some sort of business relationship between you and the search engine company, or that your application uses the same search algorithms as google.
If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
