Guys,

Don't know if this is the right forum to ask. I'm looking for a free commercial grade query browser to access MySQL database. Any idea on which one would be ideal? Please help!

That's fine Paul. But I sometimes don't work with Eclipse. So I'm looking for a seperate client that I can work with independently. Any idea?

Even if you are developing in Net Beans or any other IDE, is this a reason to prevent you using an eclipse instance just for its data tools perspective?

That aside, there are a million and one other open source SQL clients. SQuirreL SQL is good. Toad is good. Have a google, you will find loads more.

First of all I didn't know that there is something called SQuirreL SQL. I've mostly used Toad and HeidiSQL. In Google search, I just gave Free SQL Query browser for MySQL and it didn't show SQuirreL.

Anyways, thanks for the information. I got SQuirreL on my system.

dbvizualizer is another good java based sql tool, the good thing about it is as long as you have a driver for a database you can use the dbvizualier to connect to that database.

note: it already comes with some drivers I think. you will find it here
