About Eclipse SQL Explorer

Eclipse SQL Explorer is a thin SQL client that allows you to query and browse any JDBC compliant database. It supports plugins with specialized functionality for individual databases (Oracle, DB2 and MySQL) and can be extended to include specialized support for other databases.

The project started as a fork from the original JFaceDb project which has gone commercial and uses some of the core libraries of SQuirreL SQL.

The application is available as a standalone client or as a plugin for Eclipse 3.3.

Installation Instructions

Eclipse Plugin
