Hi,

Depending on your use, Aqua Data Studio may work for you.

Hi rkatkuri,

Good call Keith.  :)

Aqua Data Studio is my weapon of choice.  It provides the same interface for any database to which it will connect (DB2, Oracle, Informix, SQL Server, MySQL, etc.) so it's really convenient to the developer.  It's DBA tools are limited, but that's not its intended use.

If you can find one, download the latest release of version 5.  It's very stable and does almost everything that version 6 does.  Version 6 runs in "licensed" or "evaluation" mode.  In evaluation mode, it is nagware that reminds you (quite frequently) that the version you're running is unlicensed.  So far, it seems to allow unlimited renewals of the evalution key, but the nagware is a nuisance.


If you want to "shop around", you might also check out the "Advanced Query Tool" (AQT).  I like its layout better than Aqua data Studio, but AQT is harder to use and not nearly as robust.


Good Luck,
Kent
