About SQLGrinder 2 for Mac OS X

SQLGrinder, a native Mac OS X SQL editor and developer tool, allows database developers to easily create, edit and execute SQL queries as well as browse their database structures.

Using SQLGrinder and JDBC drivers, developers can connect to any database that supports JDBC, including Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, FrontBase, Openbase SQL, Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise. Because SQLGrinder is built using Apple's Cocoa framework, it looks and feels like a Macintosh OS X application and adheres to Apple's Aqua Human Interface Guidelines.

SQLGrinder provides many features that add to developer productivity and make building SQL queries and database schemas easier than it has ever been on the Macintosh:
  • Support for any database with an available JDBC driver

  • Multiple editor windows and schema browsers

  • Result sets displayed in data tables that can be searched and sorted

  • Export of delimited text from data tables

  • Data snapshots that provide temporary result set views

  • Interactive SQL statement library that maintains query history

  • Built with Cocoa, follows the Aqua Human Interface Guidelines
