dbForge is doing almost everything you need to develop and maintain MySQL and MariaDB databases.
The perfect "swiss knife" tool that any DB developpers would dream about.
Databases access is really complete and allow various connection types (SSH, SSL, HTTP Tunnel, ...)
Schemas comparison is really great, it's very easy to compare and directly synchronize tables, indexes, triggers and any objects in the databases.
During the developping process this function is very important to synchronize the test database and the production database.
Data comparison allows to locate easily and quickly any different datas.
Copying databases from one server to an another is done just in a few click.
For testing application this function is really a must. You just have to make a copy of your database and you can right away test the application with real datas.
The Query builder is really great and allow you to switch from graphical mode to SQL for advanced queries. In the same way, the sql editor allow you to test and debug complicated SQL script.
I'am developping applications which are working with databases. dbForge helps me a lot to develop and test DBs located on various servers.
The deployment and the databases maintenance is also greatly simplified with the comparison functions.
