Overall Satisfaction with DbVisualizer

DbVisualizer is the mostly used Data Tool in our org. It is widely used by Data Engineering community, Data Scientists and Data Analysts.
DbVisualizer querying tool helps with importing and exporting data. Timed SQL execution and real-time graphs are the killer features. It is a
multiple-platform tool, based on Java but with a native look and feel.

  • 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.
  • The ability to connect to a database-independent of platform from a single tool is the biggest useful feature for our org.
  • Easy to manage a variety of disparate database systems.
  • The query builder feature is a great way to start on complex joins without having to type a lot.
  • The pricing for DbVisualizer is fair.
  • The tool also succeeds in non-functional areas I find important, such as being able to install and/or run without requiring administrator privileges on Windows.
  • Has capability to generate diagrams and models from existing databases which is very helpful in reverse engineering.
[DbVisualizer] is pretty easy to use compared to IntelliJ because of it's simplicity. The performance is very good, it feels as good as a native application compared to the other two softwares I used for the same purpose. It's very cheaper compared to the other two tools and that's a big selling point.
