DbVisualizer is a cross-platform database tool that aims to increase user productivity. It offers a single solution to speed development, testing and administration of relational databases.

For developers, DbVisualizer offers a range of tools to assist database development and perform tasks such as object browsing, creating, running SQL statements and SQL scripts plus viewing and editing data.DbVisualizer is pretty powerful and it supports all major commercial databases including Oracle, DB2, Mimer, SQL Server, Sybase ASE, Informix and open source alternatives such as MySQL, PostgreSQL and JavaDB/Derby.

The first thing you'll notice with DbVisualizer is that it takes ages to install. The installer has been designed with selling the product in mind so don't be surprised to be prompted to purchase it before its even installed! There have been hundreds of little improvements to the latest version of DbVisualizer, including a new SQL editor, support for SQLite and new Excel export functions.

However, there are no such things as auto table completion and no SSH tunnel manager. The fact that its also still based on Java means its probably more functional and useful on Windows than on Mac so if you're deciding which platform to install it on, go for Windows.

If you need something that supports multiple databases in one package DbVisualizer is a comprehensive package although it lacks some key features.
