Version 1.2 of QueryForm, a free, open-source database utility, has
QueryForm is a robust Java application that provides a powerful GUI=20
front end for relational databases. It creates forms on-the-fly
through which you can query tables and browse the results with just a=20
few keystrokes or mouse clicks. It also lets you insert, update and=20
delete table rows without typing any SQL statements.
If you're a developer who writes database-centric software, QueryForm
can save you the tedium of typing or pasting hundreds of SQL
statements into an ISQL window each day to create test data or to
verify that updates were peformed properly.
The latest release features a completely reworked user interface,
which has been modified to make previously obscure or "hidden"=20
features more obvious to the user. The new UI is also much more
key-driven than the old one. Another new feature is the ability to
"clone" an existing record (except for the primary key and other
unique fields), which makes generating test data quick and easy.
* It supports multiple concurrent connections to different databases.
* Tables can be queried through a simple form-based interface or=20
with a custom WHERE-clause editor.
* Query results can be browsed one row at a time with the the form
interface, or viewed in a scrollable grid.
* Query results can be exported to CSV files or INSERT statements.
* Table rows can be created, updated or deleted.
* Table metadata -- column types and sizes, and primary and foreign
key fields -- can be viewed for each table in a database.
