DBeaveris a free open source database administration tool designed specifically for administrators and database developers. The program is mostly used to create databases that are compatible with multiple database management systems. The software has proven to be a boon for developers that work with multiple systems at any given time.
The real power of DBeaveris in its versatility as a program. The average database developer works with about 8 different management systems at any given time. If they are using DBeave, they can create and manage that database and carry it over to their specific system when they are finished. For example, I work on MySQL, Oracle, and Firebird most of the time. By having DBeaverin my arsenal, I can get all of my work done in DBeaverand carry over the finished product into those three different management systems with no issues.
The program doesn't require any kind of learning curve. If you can create a database in any of the other management systems, then you will feel right at home using DBeaver. Aside from its utility, the next great thing about the software is that it is completely free. If you are a programmer then the open source part of the program will be of interest to you since you can edit the program at will. In addition to all of that, there are surprisingly no operating system restrictions. DBeaverworks perfectly with 32 bit and 64 bit Windows operating systems. A few database management software is notorious for needing to be on 64 bit systems, so that makes DBeaver a welcome tool for developers.
If you've never tried DBeave, I suggest you give it a shot the next chance you get. This is especially true if you are like me and work with multiple management systems and are sick of switching between them.
Compatible with over 10 popular database management software.
