CDS/ISIS database software

UNESCO and Information processing tools

JavaIsis Client
JAVAISIS 3.0 Client has been designed to look and behave as close as possible to the standard Winisis, the Windows version of CDS/ISIS. In this way, using JAVAISIS Client requires pratically no learning efforts from Winisis users.

The actions you may perform on a database (browsing, search, update) are decided by the Server. Not all databases allow you to update them. This is a basic but necessary security option to protect the data consistency. A password protection feature can also be implemented.

Due to the fact that JAVAISIS deals with remote databases, before opening a database, you must select and connect a JAVAISIS Server. The Open command from the menu "Database" will show you the list of available servers.
