What is Navicat?
Navicat is a feature rich & very easy to use MySQL admin tool with an intuitive interface that runs on Windows, Linux & Mac.
As a developer, I’m an user & fan of Navicat for 2+ years. I have used several web based or Windows-based applications but the easiest, fastest & least (even non) problematic application one for me was Navicat.
My favorite feature is "HTTP tunnel" which enables you to connect MySQL databases when direct connections can not be done (many hosting companies only allow local connections) by simply uploading a special PHP connector file.
Databases can be exported/imported between different formats like SQL, Excel, Text, XML, Access & more.
Another beautiful feature is task scheduling. You can run automated backups, tasks & get notified via e-mail.
Some other powerful features are:
- Manage databases, tables, records, stored procedures, triggers…
- SSH Tunnel for secure connections.
- Backup: backups your databases with few clicks and makes them easily reachable.
- Transfer data between local & remote databases (great when switching from test to production environment or opposite).
- Visual query & view builder.
- Server monitor: monitors process list, variables or status of MySQL servers.
- And many more. See the full features list.
Navicat also has a PostgreSQL version & they will be releasing an Oracle version tomorrow (Friday).
As an user of Navicat, I strongly suggest any developer to use this great tool to save time & have more functional features.
And, the tool can be tried with a 30 day trial version.
How to win the giveaway licenses?
Just comment to this post with at least "I want the license" text besides any other comment.
Winners will be selected randomly from commenters 1 week later (08.14.2008) with the SQL query below:
SELECT * FROM wp_comments WHERE comment_post_id=448 AND comment_approved=1 AND comment_type='' GROUP BY comment_author_email ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 3
Good luck to all : ).
P.S. Winners will be able to choose the OS version of the license to fit their needs.
