DBeaver Review

Fernando Ortega
Portable database management with browser, editor, SQL statements
A review of DBeaver by Fernando Ortega

DBeaver is a full management application for developing with various types of databases, not least of which is MySQL and Oracle.

Apart from its support of the two most common database types, DBeaver can also handle IBM DB2, SQLite, PostgreSQL and MS SQL.

The application offers a lot of options for dealing with databases and can manage DB indexes, accounts and scripts. The most useful feature here for developers might just be the ability to create valid SQL statements and scripts which can be imported server-side. The application can also connect to local and remote database servers if the accounts are set up.

DBeaver also includes several other tools including a metadata browser, a meta data editor for tables and columns, SQL highlighting, hyperlinks and more. It fully supports BLOB entries and in the case they are images, includes an image viewer.

Overall, DBeaver is a useful application for database administrators and can be quite useful for more novice users in creating valid SQL statements in MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL and other support database types.
