Playing with Zoho DB

Via Read/WriteWeb, I heard of Zoho DB this morning. Am playing around and I like it.

I've uploaded my LibraryThing book catalog into a new Zoho DB and can publish one of the views I've defined as an embedded view into this blog post, providing some basic interaction - see below.

Within Zoho, I can create views based on SQL Queries over the data - there is support for Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, Sybase, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Informix and ANSI SQL dialects. Very nice. However, what I'm trying to figure out is the web API story for Zoho DB....I can't seem to find the documentation for it, but will keep looking.

Update: Raju Vegesna, evangelist at Zoho, got in touch to let me know there are no APIs today, but the team is planning to provide these.

We dont have any Web API available currently. But the plan is to provide it.
