The CUBRID Manager (CM), the main database administration tool for the CUBRID Database, has been available for Linux and Windows user since the very beginning. When you download the CUBRID Database the CM comes together. However, since CUBRID 3.0 (October, 2010) the CM and CUBRID are built separately to allow more flexibility and independence in development. This is the cause of todays party! The CUBRID Manager is now available for Mac users! The best news about it is that the CM runs really fast on Mac!
I was quite astonished when tried the CM on Mac. The performance is something it differs in. In everything else, it is identical to those CM for Linux and Windows. You get the complete database administration tool with a very powerful Query Editor and HA (High-Availability) monitoring feature. With the CUBRID Manager you can do all kinds of database operations, users and groups management, backup automation, and many more.
When you first start the CM, you have almost blank window with a toolbar and two empty panels.
All the sweets come on request. You first login to your host and see a list of available databases. Then you login to a particular database and start it. You see the list of items that database has, including the tables, views, stored procedures, triggers, etc. Then you run a Query Editor and execute some queries. The CM provides some shortcuts, too, for commonly used queries such as SELECT * or SELECT Count(*). While you type in the Query Editor, it will provide a list of keywords for auto-completion. You select the appropriate one with UP and DOWN arrows, then hit Enter to make the choice. When you go on the SQL keywords will get highlighted automatically. As a result you have a panel with database items on the left, a panel for a Query Editor, and a panel for the query results.
