SQLEditor

SQLEditor 3.6

Edit, import and create SQL databases without much effort.

SQLEditor is intended for editing or creating SQL databases. The application has a nice interface, in many ways different from those of other more technically-looking tools of the same type. I love being able to manage the whole database visually, with the possibility of adjusting the zoom level to the particular need. This means you can zoom out until you can get a grasp of all the database structure. What is more, although it may be hard to do, each element remains editable no matter how small it looks on the screen. So, you may find more convenient to magnify a specific region, such as a table, to work with it more easily.

Besides creating your own database, the tool can help you import various types of databases, including MySQL, Postgres, Oracle and SQLite. For this purpose, there is a wizard to do that effortlessly. Once the process ends, you can start working with their contents in no time. While it can also export your database to other formats, this option has to be used carefully as it may produce unexpected results.

Another advantage of SQLEditor is that it facilitates creating several types of diagrams for your database, which can be used to present your ideas as part of team work mainly. In this regard, it is very convenient that you can use pieces of SQL codes as part of your diagrams.

In general, despite its apparent simplicity, SQLEditor is a powerful tool in the hands of developers. Its main characteristic is related to its graphical style of dealing with database objects. The product can be tried with no feature restrictions for 30 days.
