SQL Developer and DbVisualizer

I saw this page that Hans posted in the other topic, and I noticed that many nice features aren't available to the free edition.

So why would I use DbVisualizer, if SQL Developer has all this features for free?

ps: SQL Developer doesn't has the references like there's in DdVisualizer that shows the relationship between the tables (at least I think so).

The choice of database tool is like most things a matter of taste. The main reason to choose DbVisualizer over SQL Developer is that DbVisualizer supports a lot more databases.

Give it a spin.

I agree. Here's the link:
