  • Simple yet feature-filled, nice client!

  • Exactly what I want. So cool

  • Actually the best, more copletede and useful *SQL client overthere.

  • Great tool, I use it daily.

  • This client may not be as flashy or fancy as other RDMS-specific applications but it's super flexible. In my line of work that's way more important than flash. Not having to use 2 or 3 different programs to access all of the databases I have to work with is a gift that keeps on giving.

  • Awesome, has everything that I need, the only one problem is that sometimes it's crashes, for example when I click to show the table creation script, I think it can run in another thread to prevent the whole application crash

  • Excellent tool

  • is ok

  • very nice multi-database SQL client.

  • A very useful database tool. Especially if you use java you can monitor performances of your jdbc driver.

  • Perfect

  • Squirrel is amazing, If I could ask only 2 things would make it almost perfect.... 1) Run All button - option to remove this new Lethal button It's next to the run single statement, if like me you tend to have a file with Lots of statements in, then this button is lethal and its position could not be worse. 2) Explain plans for DB2 Maybe I've missed something for Squirrel, so I have to run plans from the command line. The text/graph output at the end of this statement would be really useful, Squirrel has these bits of information, so can it be integrated somehow?... db2expln -d {database} -u {user} {password} -f {file.sql} -t -z ";" -graph

  • The best one! Simple and direct! No one beated this one since first time I used it. It lacks only a few features, which could be added in the future. It highly recommended.

  • The best SQL client I've used. Works with any database I've tried using jdbc drivers. Great features for copying schemas, data etc between databases. Able to create and test dynamic procedures for Oracle nicely etc. Everywhere I've shown developers this tool, they've dropped TOAD.

  • Wonderful tool to access any database and test experimental JDBC drivers.

  • I use this for connecting to Informix and MySQL. It's feature rich, reliable, and performs very well.

  • Really nice app :)

  • Can't say enough good things about this client. I develop on MS-SQL and Oracle, and also Derby just for testing, and this is my one and only SQL Client. Don't even bother to install vendor tools any longer. Customization, options, L&F, code completion, syntax highlighting, &etc... are great, can run any query, pl/sql, T-SQL, etc with no issues. Exporting/importing data/results also very easy. Another benefit - backup app dir and .squirrel-sql dir and you can a) use this from a thumb drive, or b) move to another computer in seconds. Came in handy when a drive failed and I needed to use backup laptop for a while - all config/settings stayed as I moved app.

  • From all sql clients (both free and paid) this one has fastest autocomplete during writing queries. With some schema configuration it is unstoppable for quick writing sql's and store results in excel/csv files (for report purposes)

  • I've used this on my Oracle DB using a Macbook Pro. A few things worthy to mention: * It does not run PL/SQL code in the worksheet, it can only run queries. * Does not feel professional, loses overview a lot because digging deeper in objects creates boxes with padding around it. * Last and certainly not least.... WHAT THE HELL were you guys drinking when writing the app???? It creates the following FUNCTION in my schema: SQUIRREL_GET_ERROR_OFFSET . What SQL client has the nerve to create objects in a schema without warning???? No popup, the DBA just starts asking what it is... how unprofessional can you be??? This app will never be used by me, my team or anyone that ever crosses my path in the future. Go back to the basics and start learning how to write software, hire an architect, team lead, heck just replace the whole development team. This is unthinkable, this can't be used in a professional environment.

  • nice and light weight.

  • Unfortunately the issues with 3.5.2 are numerous. For starters, the windows installer attempts to install into C:\Program Files(x86) but runs without administator privs. Once that issue was resolved, I had to edit the .bat launcher to specify my javaw.exe location as the launcher couldn't locate. After finally starting the program, none of the default drivers showed up and I had to manually start adding jdbc drivers to the class path and restart. Many times during this process the application would hang and have to be killed and restarted. Unfortunately completely useless.
