When it comes to connecting to a database, Navicat this graphical and easy-to-use database connection tool is well suited to meet your various needs. But since that when it executes statements like delete from table, update table set column=’value’, you would get no indication if they were executed without additional conditions. As a result, database maintainers can cause data disasters if they are not careful enough during routine maintenance. That’s why some companies are starting to ask for a switch to DBeaver.
DBeaver is a free, open-source and cross-platform (based on Java) universal database tool and SQL client specially developed for developers and database administrators on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. It provides a simple and user-friendly graphical user interface for viewing database structures, executing SQL queries and scripts, browsing and exporting data, processing BLOB/CLOBdata, modifying database structures, and much more.
As a convenient and reliable database tool, DBeaver supports all database formats, including MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase, ODBC, Java DB (Derby), Firebird (Interbase), HSQLDB, SQLite, Mimer, H2, IBM Informix, SAP MAX DB, Cache, Ingres, Linter, Teradata, as well as all other JDBC or ODBC compliant database formats. Therefore, it is able to handle any external data sources.
