PHPRunner has been incredibly useful for constructing several web mapping applications on the Community Mapping Network. We have used it extensively in the past two years on every web atlas built for our ENGO partners. Linking SQL2008 (or Access) to Mapguide Enterprise with php would not have been possible without PHPRunner taking on the bulk of the coding. Based on our experience I would (& have) recommend it to others working on similar web projects.

Phprunner is the most comprehensive yet simple-to-use front-end development tool I could find (assuming a basic knowledge of database design). It's intuitive GUI takes care of so many things I didn't even think of, without the need for coding, and is enjoyable to use. It produces a professional looking and high-quality database front-end website in a minimum amount of time. Well worth the money in terms of it being a quality tool, well-documented, and what it allows you to create.
