Depends on how you want to work. Many Content Management Systems or
Frameworks would make this pretty easy.

Here's some of the ways I've done it and still do it:
Plone with PloneFormGen module (No Coding, all through the web).
Django with it's built in Generic Views.
Drupal with custom object type.

You get pretty simple CRUD out of those, and most of them allow you to
interject extra js to make them more magical if you need with JQuery,
Ext or other libs (AJAX style forms).
