dbForge Schema Compare for MySQL

We use Schema Compare for two main scenarios:
1) Creating schema upgrade scripts to use when deploying. As our schema grows and changes, we want to tie these changes to a specific build so related code changes will be deployed along with side database schema changes. We do this by using Schema Compare to compare the modified dev database to a stable staging environment database, and then save a sync script. We can then modify that script as needed (perhaps with some update statements for migration), and include that in the deploy artifacts, which our deployment will automatically run.
2) Syncing the developer database with changes from other developers, matching prod schema, or otherwise managing dev database instances.

Devart ODBC Driver for Oracle

We are using it mainly for automation. We are using HP Quality Center as our automation tool and started using Devart ODBC for connectivity to Oracle DB. We have a lot of queries in our scripts that make several connections to the db for a particular user scenario. Devart ODBC has improved the overall runtime needed for the scripts.

Cons

dbForge Schema Compare for MySQL

  • When viewing a table comparison, data is presented in a text-based format (such as a diff viewer). This is inferior to a more structured view like dbForge Data Compare has.

Devart ODBC Driver for Oracle

  • It would be good if the connection details are stored on the cloud based on the user login so that even if the software is corrupted, it can be pulled in automatically from the cloud upon reinstallation.
  • It would great if video demos were available for the key features of the tool. That would make it a lot simpler for the user when using it the first time.
  • User friendliness can be improved.

Alternatives Considered

dbForge Schema Compare for MySQL

We haven't tried any other tools that do comparisons like Data Compare does. Our method prior to buying this tool was to manually export the entire schema to a text file and use diff tools to compare differences.

Devart ODBC Driver for Oracle

Devart is more feature rich and the direct connectivity to the DB beats out the tool provided by easysoft. We tested both of the software with the freeware version on a trial project. The project team gave a demo of both the tools to the project owner and development manger. Devart got the votes even though it was a little costlier than easysoft.
