Hello everyone,

For my final project in my Java class, we have to code a program that will access a SQL database. That is fine with me, but I was wondering if there's any kind of SQL database browser client for the mac. With that, I mean something that will ask me the server's address, user and password and let me see the database's tables and structures.

Thank you.

I use sybase. You can also use terminal to connect to a oracle database, and go from there.

How to do this, its been a while, I dont remember. Should start you somewhere.
Of course, you need a database to connect to...something the professor should provide.

I use Navicat Lite (www.navicat.com). It's a great program and legally free for home/student use.

They have an all-in-one for MySQL, Oracle, and Postgre SQL or you can use one dedicated to the type of DB you use (smaller install I guess is the benefit).
