Well after a long drought in activity. I am pleased to announce that iSQL-Viewer 3.0.0 is now officially available for download. Though this release does not have all of the features of its former self. This release serves to be more stable and usable then its predecessors.

More SVN Updates Binary Builds Coming Soon

Got a lot in the past few commits to SVN. The JDBC browsing is much more cleaner and responsive and more functionality is being worked in. It is almost to a usable point on a day to day basis, so binary builds will be coming soon.

Thank you for your patience.

SVN updates and general status.

Updated the SVN repository again, this past couple weeks been working on making a better wizard. This last commit is mainly what is the lion share of the update. I am getting more and more of the foundation down for the application. Soon the application will start to look more like itself in a new way. I would expect in the coming weeks for more 'official' releases in sourceforge as the code continues to stabilize itself. ... read more

Version 2.1.8 Released

Hello all it's a time for a long overdue release of iSQL-Viewer.

This update will include a new website design thanks to Lakshmi Natarajan for the help
and to Piotr Kr?glickifor doing the original design.

Also for those who are wondering, Yes I do plan on adding support for the JDK 5.0 in
future releases as time permits. Once the JDK 5.0 is more widespread, mainly available
on Mac OS X then I will probably then make a more of a push to make it take more advantage
of the new changes in the JDK 5.0. If anyone would like to test on the new JDK i would
be interested to hear of your results, I have gotten iSQL-Viewer to run on the betas runtimes.... read more

issues that existed in 2.1.6 this hopes to be another step in the right

iSQL-Viewer v2.1.6 Released

iSQL(IndependentSQL)-Viewer is a JDBC 2.0-compliant application that is designed to exploit JDBC Features for all compliant drivers. Support for Interactive Transactions, Running Batches, Schema Viewing, and support for various import and export filters.

Version 2.1.6 is officially out and ready for download. This version is fairly stable however there are some new features that need some time to stabilize with a bit more usage. I am however marking it as a beta release for this reason. I do recommend upgrading to this version as a lot of the core functionality has been given a nice stable kick in the pants, figuratively speaking of course.... read more

iSQL-Viewer v2.1.5 Relased

After much time a stable milestone for iSQL-Viewer is now been reached.
This release will also mark a very stable milestone for my code such that a lot of the
core functionality as being an SQL console is pretty solid now, and I can focus on features
to compliment this core. This includes things like a live table editor which is probably the
most requested feature. Along with new tools I intended to create a better environment for
people to write small plugins to do specific tasks, such I hope that iSQL-Viewer will become
useful in ways I never thought conceived of.... read more
