JooDatabase Lite ComponentModulePlugin

JooDatabase is simple and fast way to include and display external tables (collections, databases) into Joomla. It automatically generates pages containing the table data using editable templates for catalog and single entry views.

Special elements like print-icons and pagination-links are displayed at the desired position in the templates. JooDatabase handles the linking, routing between the pages automatically. The search plug-in provides search in your databases using the Joomla sitesearch component.

Some examples:
* {joodb printbutton} will insert a popup link to the print view of a dataset
* {joodb pagenav} insert a pagination object in the database list
* {joodb FIELDNAME} output the FIELD content at this position in the template

I like the look and I like the frontend simplicity. That's a fiver. But for the rest...? Sorry, guys.

I use joomla because it's a tool to make nice sites without being a code wizard. I use it on an "IKEA level". That is, I'm not a carpenter who can or want to make my own furniture. Metaforically, you need to be both carpenter (html savvy), blacksmith (SQL savvy) and tailor (CSS savvy) to make this extension work at all.

It actually feels as if the whole point in using joomla - not needing to be code savvy - is totally evaded in this extension.

Joomla is a tool dependent on and created by other tools such as php, html, js and css. These tools work on a level below the complexity and ease of use of Joomla. Together they make something more complex and beautiful than themselves - Joomla. If I want to use Joomla as intended, I don't want to learn all the tools for making Joomla in the first place, in order to use it.

The first stumble block is creating a new database to actually do something. Pressing the usual New button to create a new database, you are asked to select the table you want to use from your MySQL database. There is no way to put in a new table as in ChronoForms or any of the other similar extensions. You have to create it through phpMyAdmin first, to be able to select it as New database, and that is sooo Not Joomla.

So, even though the looks are great in the demo, I cannot give you anything but a "very poor" rating, because as an average Joomla user, this extension is useless. If, on the other hand, this were a ful-fledged joomla extension, I would gladly pay the 50 euros to use the pro version, cause I somehow sense potential here.

Not an extension for a newbie, but a really valuable extension that does exactely what it promises! Very good for me. Little lack of documentation, but easy to use anyway. Even in this free version there is a lot of functionality. Definitely recommended for easy database table displaying.

As many others Joomla! users we have searched and tested many CCK before Joodb.

Very easy to understand, and start, you'll get good performance and stability even with quit big table.
If you are able to define your own table with phpMyadmin you have done half of the job!

We use Joodb for a 25.000 caps collection of sparkling wines, without any problem with the free extension.
We are so satisfied that we have purchased the pro version.

This extension should be better known. If you have this kind of needs, our advice is try it, before!

My problem was the attractive display of the data of an imported spreadsheet. I tested several components extensively. Most were overcharged on unnecessary features and hard to use. With Joodatabase I managed to present my data in a short time in an attractive design.
Support is excellent. Thanks to Berlin
Joodatabase is a real CCK!
