At SqlDBM, one of our core beliefs that we really strive to infuse into everything we do, is to truly listen to our users’ requests and feedback. A significant percentage of our users expressed that they would want the ability to design MySQL databases using SqlDBM.  We listened and actualized that.

With that, SqlDBM is very proud to present a fantastic enhancement to the tool – MySQL Support! With this feature you can improve your productivity as you develop and model your MySQL databases.

MySQL Support in SqlDBM has plenty of great features, and some of the important ones are listed below:

Support for most popular Engines

SqlDBM support various engines, which user can use for the tables. All changes are reflected in generated Sql Script in Forward Engineering.

Support for Row/Storage/Statistics options

For advanced users, SqlDBM provide support for additional attributes of the tables like RowFormat, Min/Max rows etc.

Creating Relationships

Relationships in MySQL need to have an index. SqlDBM does the heavy lifting for you, all user needs to do is to connect the tables by simple drag and drop.

Generate SQL / Forward Engineer support

User can design MySQL databases and easily materialize their beautiful designs into valuable SQL script.

And of course, you can take advantage of and adapt SqlDBM features into your MySQL database such as Subject Areas, Relationships, Diagrams, View Modes, etc.

 

– Convert projects from “Sql Server” to MySQL and vice versa

SqlDBM also allows users to convert their project from MySQL to SQL Server and vice versa!

To do this, just go the Dashboard page, locate the project you want. And click to select the context menu next to it. The context menu is displayed as a set of 3 vertical dots next to the project name (see screenshot below). From this menu, select the option ‘Copy to MySQL’ if your project is in SQL Server, or ‘Copy to SQL Server’ if your project is in MySQL.

 

– Create Copy of the Project

 Now users can easily create copy of existing projects. Just local your project on Dashboard page, click on three dot menu, and click on “Copy Project”

 

– Improved Dashboard Page with clear indication of Local Draft projects

UI on Dashboard page is greatly enhanced. Now users can easily identify which of their project are saved only on local browser storage and not on the server.
