    Unanswered: GUI tools for MySQL

    I am exploring MySQL as a database solution but I hesitate because of the lack of GUI tools for development. I really do not want to revert back to the Stone Age command line. I would rather not type “Create Table statements”. In browsing some forums I have heard that there are some 3rd party GUI’s, but I want to know what anyone out there feels is good.

    To give you a little more info…if I could find a GUI similar to MS enterprise manager that would be great…Oh another thing is I am looking for cost effectiveness, because if the 3rd party tool cost as much as MS SQL then why use MySQL?

    It's not really a GUI, but phpMyAdmin works fine.

    MySQL will be announcing a new MySQL GUI package at LinuxWord which I think is next weekend. I have seen some screenshots of the new tool and they are quite impressive!

    I wouldn't call it a database designer program, but a server admin program. Basically you will never need to login to the server to do much anymore.

    Just so everybody knows, the MySQL Administrator has been announced.

    You can see more information about it at http://www.mysql.com/products/administrator/index.html

    And in fact, you can even see closer to the bottom that I have already reviewed it and I will say that it's very sweet!

    They wanted an impartial review. And I've been known to both applaude stuff MySQL does and bash them miserably. In this case, they definitely get two thumbs up.

    Ok, I'll see if I can pull some strings... they use adoanwyhere to debug MyODBC..

    Are you a member of their support partnership program, I've been thinking of giving it a go for about a year now, but it's only recently I've had the resources..I was wondering if it was beneficial..any ideas?

    I'm not sure what they use to develop anymore, the person who wrote the program is new to the company.

    Sorry, don't know what their support partnership is.

    Re: GUI tools for MySQL

    Hi!

    I create a tool to Develop Pascal Software but the IDE has too many options to manipulate MySQL Databases. You can see this application at
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/npascal. You need to download either the source code or the installer (for Win32 only, sorry).

    Otherwise you can download the MySQL Control Center tool at http://www.mysql.com/products/mysqlcc/.

    If you have any other question my e-mail is this
