Dumb question, any visual database management tool?

this is probably a dumb question but I haven't found any visual database management tool for java db that lets me create tables etc

I'd prefer to use such a tool instead of writing code that will be executed just once

I mean something like phpmyadmin (web based) or a standalone piece of software like MySQL Administrator

do you know about any open source/freeware software like these?

Hi,

You can try Oracle SQL Developer. The tool can be used for database that support JDBC. And here is the link to SQL Developer website: http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/sql_developer/index.html

I downloaded that tool from oracle.com but I don't get how I can connect it to my javadb

inside sql developer I have only oracle, mysql, access and sql server options

DbVisualizer -- but it isn't free.
I think MySql has a gui available, but I've never tried it.

I usually link to the database with the ubiquitous Microsoft Access.

Squirrel can handle all JDBC databases, and is very nice IMO.
