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.

Rapid SQL is great for smaller organizations and development teams who are experienced with an SQL environment. It is not suitable for most beginners who are not familiar and need a learning platform.

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.

Rapid SQL

  • User base support is not as great as MySQL, SQL Server, and Oracle.
  • The included editor could be refined. I notice some of the reserved words were not highlighted.

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.

The IT department uses it so we adopted the software. I would have chosen SQL Server myself.
