AquaFold strengthens Linux Desktop for developers

JohnLH writes "Mountain View, CA -- 6/7/2004 -- AquaFold, Inc today announced the latest version of Aqua Data Studio, which provides enterprise and database administration features for all major relational databases. With a growing number of developers using Linux as their primary desktop environment, users are experiencing an increasing need for higher quality desktop tools. Although major database vendors have embraced Linux for their database server products, there is still a lack of support for database administration and query tools for Linux desktop users, forcing users to continue to use Microsoft Windows to administer their Linux database servers. Aqua Data Studio is the first and only tool to provide a complete database administration and query tool for Linux. Aqua Data Studio provides an integrated database environment with a single consistent interface to all major relational databases. Developed with the Java programming language, Aqua Data Studio
supports all major operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, Solaris and the Linux operating system.

The new release introduces the ability to visually create and alter database schema objects, including storage objects for databases. Visual editing provides database developers and administrators an easy way to develop and manage any database. The new visual explain plan provides users with the ability to create explain plans and generate diagrams to quickly understand and analyze the operations of any query to optimize speed and performance. Schema extraction now provides the ability to extract the definition of any database object including security and storage objects, providing database administrators quick access to the SQL definition for any administration task. The new import tool provides an easy and consistent interface to import data into any database from different data sources. Additional database support includes Oracle 10g, PostgreSQL 7.4 and MySQL 4.0.

Aqua Data Studio provides an integrated database environment with a single consistent interface to all major relational databases. This allows the database administrators and developers to tackle multiple tasks simultaneously from one application. Aqua Data Studio's sophisticated Query Analyzer allows users to work on database scripts with specific RDBMS syntax highlighting and auto-completion to develop and test scripts. Aqua Data Studio is similar in functionality to tools from leading vendors such as BMC Software (BMC), Embarcadero Technologies (EMBT) and Quest Software (QSFT).
