MySQL Workbench

MySQL Workbench

MySQL Workbench is a complete visual database design tool that integrates SQL development, administration, database design, visual data modeling, change management, creation and maintenance into a single, seamless environment for the MySQL database system.

MySQL Workbench enables a database administrator, developer, or data architect to visually design, generate, and manage all types of databases including Web, OLTP, and data warehouse databases.

Whilst MySQL Workbench is the successor application of the DBDesigner4 project, it is a complete rewrite.

The software is available in two editions, the Community Open Source edition, and the commercial standard edition. The feature set below relates to the open source edition.
