CommonGIS can import shape files, e00, and a whole lot of other geometry 
formats. As for tabular data, you can import dbf, ODBC/JDBC, Oracle 8, CSV 
and clipboard (just in case someone wants to add data on the fly). Don't know 
about MapServer

CommonGIS has no competitors, IMHO: it is too good right now. (I am not in 
the team anymore, I am not earning money, nor am I involved with the software 
development, but I would really love to see it released as free software).
