Best in Managing Database and sessions

Overall I found Dbeaver a great utility to start with and it can handle professional operations as well. It has great search features to lookup the server and database without slowing down the operation or task management.

Pros

I have found Dbeaver very user-friendly. Process controlling, running queries, and managing the database are very easy with this tool. Dbeaver allows the use of export to create the dump which is quicker than other applications. It has also a great session Manager to manage any stuck operations and tasks currently in process.

Cons

Dbeaver has too frequent updates which sometimes causes problems with the existing version and it has to be upgraded/updated along with the additional files that take up more disk space and resources.

Reasons for choosing DBeaver

User-friendly environment and lite application

Reasons for switching to DBeaver

Limited functionality and crashes

Great Multiplatform Database Tool

Pros

Great database tool that lets you connect and manage PostgreSQL databases and many others (MySql, Oracle, SqlServer etc. ). I've tested a lot of PostgreSQL tools and this is the most reliable and most fully featured one I've tried. Supports transactions, parameters for queries, exports, imports and more.

Cons

Some updates have been buggy, but they fix it quickly. I usually wait 10 days now before installing an update.

Reasons for choosing DBeaver

Had a good installer and just worked out of the box.

Reasons for switching to DBeaver

Couldn't get the PostgreSQL installer to work on my new laptop.

Affordable Database Software

It's affordable database software offering high-quality features that can get any database job done more efficiently. The interface is amazing, and getting started is not a drag. I would recommend this to anyone in my industry. It's cost-effective, and it's an industry-level standard.

Pros

There are a lot of things to like about DBeaver. What I like most about the software is: i) It's one of the most affordable database software in the market but performs as an industry standard. ii) I can connect to most of the databases in development. iii) Easy data exporting in different formats, including XML.iv) Seamless connection with NoSQL and SQL database. v) The software has regular updatesvi) User-friendly interfacevii) integration with different databases

Cons

i) I don't like the multiple tabs when retrieving a table. Which can waste time. Otherwise, it's an awesome software to use.

Reasons for switching to DBeaver

It was way more expensive!

Best OpenSource DBMS

As a database developer is really complete, open-source, and relatively easy to use, has its issues, but if you wait for your OS (Especially MacOS) to be officially supported is a great tool for the job, really complete.

Pros

Is really complete, support several database engines, from Oracle to MariaDB, Supports Packages On MariaDB using Oracle Syntax (The only one I used supporting this), It can generate ER Diagrams of the tables on a database, easy to add new connections since it downloads the drivers by itself.

Cons

Kinda buggy especially when a new OS is released, had a lot of problems when BigSur came out, they released fixes every couple of weeks, and now is fully compatible with big sur, I wish it had an option to export the ERD diagrams as UMLs to be used with Visual Paradigm and other diagramming software.

Great for all DBs

Overall it is a great experience and I love seeing other people use it as well. Its hard to get use to at first, but once you use it its hard to go back.

Pros

Ability to use it for multiple different environments and multiple different DBs and languages, seemless switching between them

Cons

A bit hard to setup initially and get use to, it was a slight divestiture for other applications and a far way from what I was use to at the time in MS SQL Server Management Studio, but it was quick to get use to

Reasons for switching to DBeaver

i needed something that could be easy and work with multiple platforms seemlessly
