Abstract: This papier presents an overview of SAADA, a tool designed to allow astronomers to easily create their own databases from archival files (images, spectra, tables, ...) or from imported data. It aims to make the process of database creation as automatic as possible. Its functionality will include java code generation, data loading, automatic web interfacing, and some interoperability features. Correlation links between records can easily be set up by astronomers in order to add scientific content to the database. Data can either be accessed with the automatic Web interface or by handling persistent objects. Through an API, SAADA will be able to interoperate with external databases (using of VO standards). It will also be able to achieve queries including constraints on correlation patterns.
