DBeaver

Great tool for developers to use to dive into their databases. Not so great if you are a die-hard Windows user with expectations of a SQL Management studio replacement. This is the less suited tool for people looking to just view and edit data. If you need to generate any scripts or import and export data, this is the tool to use.

dbForge Data Compare for MySQL

Data Compare covers two main use cases for us:
1) Keep data in sync between our development, test, and staging environments. When a full database import isn't practical, we will use Data Compare to sync data for key tables. We use this for configuration tables as well as operational test data.
2) Troubleshoot prod issues. When we have trouble reproducing user issues, Data Compare helps us compare our test environment data vs prod environment data to identify problems.

Cons

DBeaver

  • Sometimes it's clunky and slow.

  • Comparison can be very slow on large datasets.
  • Comparing records that are *different* is clunky, especially for tables with many fields.

At the moment, from our company we have not had to try the DBeaver support service, so we cannot answer this question. We understand that the paid version will offer a much better service.

Alternatives Considered

DBeaver

MySQL workbench from MySQL only supports MySQL databases and it only provides basic functionality. On top of that, the user experience could be quite confusing for first-time users. SSMS from SQL server doesn't support inline editing nicely. The view for inline editing and view data is different, making it uncomfortable to use. All in all, DBeaver is the best tool when you manage a lot of databases with different types.

We haven't tried any other tools that do comparisons like Data Compare does. Our method prior to buying this tool was to manually run queries on each database and compare the output using text compare or by eye.
