MacOS GURU team
at InterServices have released SQL4X Manager J 2.1, built to simplify the access of SQL database servers from Mac OS X.
|<?php virtual(“/includes/boxad.inc”); ?>
It supports all major database vendors, including Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase ASE, PostgreSQL, OpenBase, MySQL, and others. Designed to support developers and Web site administrators, SQL4X Manager J 2.1 features:
A new Connection Assistant to make it easier to set up a JDBC connection to your database server — and even download the JDBC driver if it isn’t already installed;
The JDBC Finder for browsing in a Mac OS X Finder-style column view through your database (you can double-click to open and edit a table, display table information, and view images stored in BLOB fields);
The DB Navigator to get an all-in-one view (data, table definition, and keys) for developers;
A SimpleReporter4X to automatically convert you query results in a report or generate (you can then print your own reports);
The SQL Console to run your own queries and scripts. It supports syntax coloring and non-update-queries to, for example, create tables or run stored procedures.
For more info or a demo version go to the MacOS GURU Web site. A single user license costs US$59.
SQL4X Manager J is written completely in Cocoa and Java and demonstrates the power of Apple’s Java Bridge technology to integrate native Mac OS X applications with Java code to access databases, according to Thomas K. Fischer of the MacOS GURU Team. Other applications available from InterServices New Media’s MacOS GURU Team include the eSuite4X and SQL4X Manager Pro, a MySQL installer for MacOS X with a native MacOS X graphical user interface for administering MySQL database servers.
