I want to store my nagios configuration data into oneCMDB(configuration management database). What i trying to achieve is i will be developing a GUI app in which one can edit the configurations and that configurations will be stored into the database rather than the plain text files. I read it's developer and administrator documentation but there is not tutorial available for it.

If anyone can give a link to such tutorial then it will be a great help to me since there is no such tutorial available.Any suggestions are most welcome.

Well, as far as I know and understand the term cmdb, there is no real database engine, but instead systems like puppet, chef, or cfengine2 are cmdb's. Like wikipedia explains cmdb:

So, you could program add-ons for these systems that would support your nagios config?
