dbForge Studio for MySQL

This tool is useful for small and large IT departments and associated data analysts that perform direct database functions such as DBA tasks or extracting/importing data. Non-technical staff members would not benefit from this tool as much as the functions are detailed and technical. However, automation engineers will find this tool very open for automation, and can generate the scripting code for any of its functions.

IntelliJ IDEA

IntelliJ IDEA has been a great tool to develop Javascript and Java services for myself. Debugging/Running code is effortless and requires minimal configuration by the user. I prefer using a GUI to text configuration, and IntelliJ IDEA provides that very well. It would be nice if they provided textual configuration in addition to the UI.There are many default configurations to run different scripts without having to search the internet to find examples for how to get the IDE set up.

Pros

dbForge Studio for MySQL

  • Connection manager (we use it through ssh tunnels) works effortlessly.
  • Great sync tools for both database schemas and data.
  • Storing code snippets to be used when needed.
  • Nice code suggestions while typing queries.
  • Usually does very well with storing your session and opening all of your sql tabs when opening the apps next time.
  • Does very well when executing large sql files (without opening the files into the application that is).
  • Pretty good debugging help when a problem occurs in executing a query or a files with multiple queries.

IntelliJ IDEA

  • Unit testing: Fully integrated into IntelliJ IDEA. Your unit tests will run smoothly and efficiently, with excellent debugging tools for when things get tricky.
  • Spring integration: Our Spring project using Maven works flawlessly in IntelliJ IDEA. I know firsthand that Apache is also easily and readily supported too. The integration is seamless and very easy to set up using IntelliJ IDEA's set up wizard when importing new projects.
  • Customization: IntelliJ IDEA comes out of the box with a bunch of handy shortcuts, as well as text prediction, syntax error detection, and other tools to help keep your code clean. But even better is that it allows for total customization of shortcuts you can easily create to suit your needs.

Cons

dbForge Studio for MySQL

  • It has only 30 day trial periods
  • Some time suggestions of joint operations are not accurate
  • For students it should be free
Mantosh Kumar | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

User experience is one of the top points that distinguish IntelliJ from other Java IDEs. Migrating from other IDEs to IntelliJ is very easy, importing the code formatting style is easy as well. It is just a very smooth process and a decision I think any pro Java developer should make.

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

We used MySQL Workbench tool before dbForge Studio for MySQL and it did not work well. dbForge Studio for MySQL was a much more complete and flexible solution to resolve our development and administration problems. dbForge Studio for MySQL not only resolved our problems it brought different and new features to our processes.

IntelliJ IDEA

We actually use both Eclipse and IntelliJ for our Java applications. We left it up to developers to choose use either or both tools for their work, in case they want IntelliJ our department supported the fee for use. In general developers preferred IntelliJ for Java application development, and Eclipse for web development or integration project. There wasn't a big learning huddle when developers switch one environment to the other. By this the two tools are complementary, and not conflict.

  • 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.
