Hello the CUBRID Community members!
I am very pleased to announce the first release of the very new tool we have been working on very hard for the past few months. This tool is distributed under the BSD license and allows users to work faster, easier and more conveniently with CUBRID when dealing with tables, views, triggers, serials, functions and procedures. It is called the CUBRID Query Browser. It is a Java application which can run as a standalone application or as an Eclipse plugin, and even as a plugin for the CUBRID Manager (CM) itself.
If we compare, the CUBRID Manager is a powerful all-in-one database administration tool for CUBRID DBAs, while the CUBRID Query Browser is its lightweight version more oriented toward developers who need to quickly type and execute SQL statements, and see their results. It embraces all the features of the Query Editor built in the CUBRID Manager, such as syntax highlighting, auto-completion, and auto-commit, and adds over it more control, better UI, and quick access buttons for faster navigation (see the image below).
Though the CQB is very similar to the Query Editor of the CUBRID Manager, there is a small difference between the Query Browser and the CUBRID Manager. When you establish a new connection in the CM, you connect to the CUBRID Manager Server which may have one or more databases. So, once you are connected, you can separately login to different databases and manually start them. In the contrary, when establishing a new connection in the Query Browser, you connect directly to a database, thus each connection represents a database connection, not the host connection.
Overall, it is a very nice, intuitive and fast tool for developers which has many great features. Download the Query Browser as a standalone application or as an Eclipse plugin from the following link for your Windows, Linux or Mac OS X.
For more detailed information, you can refer to the CUBRID Query Browser manual.
