SQuirreL SQL database browser

Friday, March 19th, 2010

I finally found a decent replacement for the MySQLcc database browser:

SQuirreL SQL

SQuirreL SQL Client is a graphical Java program that will allow you to view the structure of a JDBC compliant database, browse the data in tables, issue SQL commands etc

It’s Java, so it’s slow, but it does everything I want, and more:

  1. Syntax highlighting
  2. Multiple query tabs
  3. Multiple queries in the same tab (select the query and press ctrl-enter to run it)
  4. Export results

It has tons of options you can tweak, and it’s got plugins if you want to extend it. It supports just about every relational (and some non-relational) database out there.
