Expose Database as Webservice

Hello,

I would like to access a database via Web Services in an automated way. Like this :
http://www.flynetviewer.com/Products/Flynet-Viewer-Web-Service-Generator-For-Databases/5.aspx
But I want a portable solution (multi-os).
I know that you will tell me that it is not too difficult to develop with axis or other but we I am the only java developer in my company (we work with other technologies) and I am looking for something standalone.
No problem if it is necessary to install severals technologies (AXIS2 + ... + ...) and make xml or conf files, but no code.

I've not found any solution for the moment, maybe could you help me.

Thanks

Hi!
This sounds like something very appropriate for a RESTful web service.
Take a look at NetBeans - I recall there is a wizard that allows you to create a RESTful web service from entity classes.
Best wishes!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
