Hello,

I'm using JDK 6 which comes with the derby database. I'm wondering if there is an open source front end to view what is in the database: ie, tables and their contents. I know to TOAD exists for the Oracle database. I'm looking for open source.

Thanks,
Jim

Jim,
The first place to look is your IDE. Many IDEs come with a data viewer that can view tables and their contents. For example, NetBeans and IBM RAD have this capability.

Wang,
SQLExplorer sounds like it does what you want from Eclipse. You can download it from sourceforge

Hello All,

Thanks for the replies. As to the IDE, I'm "still" using emacs (at least for this project). I'm getting more familiar w/ Eclipse everyday but not completely up to speed.

I'm accessing my derby database as an internal database, versus having a derby database server running and connecting to it remotely. Does that make a difference w/ setting up and using SQLExplorer?

Thanks,
Jim
