- Aqua Data Studio is a database query and administration tool that allows developers to easily create, edit, and execute SQL scripts, as well as browse and visually modify database structures. My favorite features: auto-completing SQL editor, and Excel-like editing of SELECT resultsets – the software generates automatically the appropriate UPDATE commands. Written in Java and supported on Windows, OS X, Solaris and Linux. Comes with JDBC drivers for MySQL, MS SQL Server 7/2000, Oracle 8/9/10, PostgreSQL and Sybase, and you can add drivers for other DBs. Runs fast. Free for educational use.
- DBDesigner4 is a visual database design system that integrates database design, modeling, creation and maintenance into a single, seamless environment. I use it to visually layout and plan my database schemas. Free. Only on Windows and Linux
