  • Working with various relational database vendors
  • Running on various operating systems especially Linux based.
  • Performant
  • ER Diagrams
  • Schema Management
  • I honestly would love an emacs key binding for the editor. I would pay more for that. Honestly. Probably should provide VIM also to keep those savages happy. :)
  • Probably support for non-relational DB's. Especially the new Vector DB's used for LLM's. Right now vectorDB's have NO tooling. It's awful. It's like coding on your hands and knees.

  • Powerful SQL editor for designing and writing queries
  • Data management and and database browser
  • Automation of repetitive tasks
  • Data export to Excel, CSV and HTML
  • Better management of saved queries. Instead of using the operating system's folders, built-in list of saved queries with the option to select each would be helpful.

  • Easy configuration of a variety of databases
  • Nice visualization of explain plans
  • Intuitive
  • Colleagues of mine use TablePlus. The one thing I'm envious of TablePlus is how is displays its data. It has the typical table layout of a result set that all tools have, but if you select a single line it will display that line's data in another pane but horizontally, which I find easier to navigate and digest when the row is very wide.
  • It would be nice to not have to wrap PL/SQL statements in DbVisualizer markup. Other tools don't require this.

  • visually organizes connections/queries/data well
  • handles quick data exports and imports well
  • handles explain plans well
  • does not handle lost connections well (specially after stopping a running query) (MySQL). eg. after hitting stop, and then hitting run again, it can sometimes look like its running the query, but it isn't actually!
  • filtering on databases window is clunky (why the need for filtering certain object types at a time? just filter everything, google style)
  • altering table, adding columns (NOT to the end of the table's columns, but earlier) is not supported (MySQL) even though the db supports it (alter table add column BEFORE..)

  • Provides simple access to all tables, indexes, views, triggers, stored procedures, etc., to just about every database on the market
  • Allows me to develop and run queries in a simple, easy to read and understand manner
  • Allows me to create entire new schemas as well as alter existing schemas
  • Gives me access to databases without the need to install specific drivers for any particular database
  • The record limit, while usually accessible on-screen, moves around based on what the current view is or is not there at all sometimes
  • Pressing the STOP button on a query does not immediately stop the query
  • Updates, while always welcome, sometimes seem to come with too much frequency

  • Timed queries that add their result to the result grid for every execution are helpful. Creation of graphs also extremely helpful.
  • Query history and auto-recover feature makes sure we don't lose our queries.
  • Actions like exporting grids to Excel or other tools is a very easy task.
  • Having the JDBC drivers in a fixed location outside of the application package helps during upgrades.
  • Sometimes the app crashes if we export huge amount of data but that's expected.
  • Navigating to the configuration section is quite difficult for beginners.
