Can C2 be used to make a simple database program for tracking things?

Say for instance, I want to track the issuance of books or something. I have one textbox for the name of the book and another for the name of the person who I gave it to. I would like to enter the info, click a button and add it to my list/database.

After that, I would like to be able to view that list in it's entirety and or search by specific field.

Sounds complicated, but I feel like it's possible.

Thoughts?

The easiest way to interact with a database is in PHP.

There are tons of tutorials on Google on how to do this also.
http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_mysql_connect.asp is one example.

From there, you simply access your PHP app via AJAX (HTTP GET) and then have that API pass information back to your database.
