Gui tools for MySQL

Threaded View

Hello there,

I'm looking for a tool that does for MySQL Db's what Access does for
Jet DB's.

Therefore provides a nice gui to speedup certain tasks and produce
entitiy relationship diagrams. Is there a market leader in this field?
Do people have recommendations?

I'm actually looking into using Visio for creating my diagrams but it
seems I would have to duplicate entry when creating DB schemas.

Hope this makes sense.

Kind regards

There are of course others.  You might want to search an archive of this
newsgroup for the words like "Access" and "GUI" and find other
recommendations: =*mysql*

For graphical database design, there are many options, both freeware and
commercial.  MySQL's web site has a partner area where you can search to
find lots of software titles in different categories:

I use DBDesigner 4 when I need an ER design tool: /

I don't know of anything that provides the forms-based application
programming environment similar to MS Access, except for, uh, MS Access.
  You can use Access for front-end UI development, with MySQL as the
back-end data storage:

You could link access to MySQL via the MySQL ODBC drivers and
create entity relationships.
