Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Actions like exporting grids to Excel or other tools is a very easy task.""Timed queries that add their result to the result grid for every execution are helpful."

More DbVisualizer Pros →

"Toad has a lot of features that are very useful, fast, and well developed.""A quite simple feature that I have not encountered elsewhere is the "Make Code" feature. I can easily export a complex SQL statement to a programming language. This is a great timesaver as I do not have to type in all of the escape/concatenation characters just to create a SQL statement in C# or C++.""I find Toad easy to use and I love the Workspace feature, which allows me to set up projects so that I can open SQL files applicable to what I am working on at any particular time."

Cons
"One thing I would like to see changed is having the JDBC drivers in a fixed location outside of the application package.""Sometimes, I feel that the startup time takes a bit more time than needed."

More DbVisualizer Cons →

"Once in a while, I may encounter a memory exception and have to abort the application. On a few occasions, the file that stores the saved connections for the New Connection window will become corrupt and I will lose all of my saved connections. I am not sure if that is a Windows or TOAD issue, but it has happened to all of my developers at some point or another.""I would like to see an improvement in the performance because opening the browser and the editor should be faster.""There should also be a better "cancel query" option as sometimes one cancels a query, but then it still might run for a long time, and then one has to crash Toad in order to cancel the query."
