dbForge Studio for MySQL

In my experience dbForge is easily better than most of other db clients on Windows OS. I don't use all of it's functionalities, but the once I need and use are usually pretty stable and straightforward. There is however still a lot to improve in my opinion: the interface could use a more modern look and feel, I really miss the server stats and running queries info, batch executions on multiple databases would be awesome and if the typing predictions would be less buggy for users like us who have multiple server connections running at once, it would make work a little bit easier and faster.

IntelliJ IDEA

IntelliJ IDEA is fantastic for all things Java. If you're starting or already working on a Java project, look no further than IntelliJ IDEA. If you want Gradle build integration or are using Maven or Apache, IntelliJ IDEA can do it all. It really is a complete development system with countless customization features available.

Pros

dbForge Studio for MySQL

  • dbForge Studio for MySQL worked perfectly well for a database administrator. The UI is very friendly and I was able to improve all tasks regarding my job, manage user privileges, table maintenance, server sessions etc.
  • The query development really improved with dbForge Studio for MySQL. All of the developer team had a much easier way to develop all the queries that were used inside the systems. The Visual Query Builder improved the performance and quality of the queries made by the developers and programmers.
  • The database designer brought to us a totally different vision of the database model. Before dbForge Studio for MySQL the database model was completely lost and corrupted. With dbForge Studio for MySQL we were able to put all objects together in a organized way. All of the IT department members knew where each table was connected to, and everybody was able to access the model before starting the development, reducing the inconsistencies of the company systems, and as a consequence we reduced the costs of development.

IntelliJ IDEA

  • Compared to Eclipse, basically it is a easier to learn which results in faster learning curve. Good for small or mid-sized projects. Generally speaking developers can be productive in a short training and use.
  • Very rich plug-in capability, such as out of the box support for version control systems.
  • User friendly interface. Responsive and interactive than other IDE tools.

Cons

dbForge Studio for MySQL

  • I use dbForge Studio for MySQL in a limited environment - an online store hosted by Bigcommerce - so I don't see anything that cries out for improvement. It might be different if I was juggling multiple databases in an enterprise environment spread out over the Internet, but for what I need, dbForge Studio for MySQL does the job perfectly.

IntelliJ IDEA

  • IntelliJ IDEA wins as long as the language is Java. Outside that , e.g., in other languages, it is not so advanced.
  • It is licensed, with a steep licensing cost. All features are not included in the free edition.
  • It is not as light as Eclipse, so in a weak system, it can be a pain.

VS Code is maturing and has a Scala plugin now. The overall experience with VS Code - for web development at least - is very snappy/fast. IntelliJ feels a bit sluggish in comparison. If that Scala plugin for VS Code is deemed mature enough - we may not bother renewing and resort to the Community Edition if we need it.

The user interface for IntelliJ Idea is phenomenal. It's got the usual JetBrains interface but it works well to support all Java processes. All in all, it is a solid product and to be expected from JetBrains who creates this integrated development environment software. It allows me to test in the IDE and run other manual workflows automatically such as install packages.

I never really needed support as the product is solid. Any questions that do come up can usually be resolved via online resources. IntelliJ IDEA is popular enough to have a big enough community for you to find answers to common questions. They do have a public bug tracker if you run into issues, but I personally find it difficult to navigate and keep track of.

This installs just like any other application - its pretty straight forward. Perhaps licensing could be more challenging - but if you use the cloud licensing they offer its as simple as having engineers login to the application and it just works.

Alternatives Considered

dbForge Studio for MySQL

  • Much more stable than MySQL WorkBench
  • Has the power tools a db designer wishes for but lacks in free clients like HeidiSQL
  • Is being improved regularly
  • Is fairly well supported

IntelliJ IDEA

Against competition I can say about IntelliJ that:
1. It is definitely faster and efficient than other IDEs. Comparing with Eclipse it emerges as a clear winner in terms or raw performance.2. More feature Rich with great support for modern technologies. It has great support for version control, LESS, SAAS, Maven to name but a few.3. A more complete package. Its HTML, CSS, and Javascript editor are better as compared to others. That coupled with packages , features and other small customization make it an overall better package for software development.4. Costlier. This does not need explanation. Other IDEs which I used were open source and hence free. This is costly.5. Has a better UI.

IntelliJ IDEA

  • IDEA significantly speeds up the development lifecycle. Developers can think more about their code and less about what needs to be done at the syntax and filesystem level.
  • IDEA has such a large user base that it's easy to find people for your organisation that can hit the ground running with it.
  • Using a standard code template helps to standardise the code across the team.
