What features do you need? MySql Workbench is available for Linux. Personally, I develop in Eclipse, so I use Eclipse SQL Explorer (that is, if I'm not using the command-line client).

The are also the MySQL GUI tools (Browser and Admin): http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/gui-tools/5.0.html
Your distro should have them available for easy installation.

Thank you Joe,Peter,Luciano .

I first downloaded SQLExplorer. It did not work may be because my eclipse version is 3.4 (that is the only reason I can guess).

Then I downloaded MySQL GUI tools. I could connect to mysql server through MySQL Admin.

Only question which I want to ask my CentOS version is 5.3. The rpm which I downloaded is for RHEL 4 because this Download page does not have for RHEL 5. Till now it has not given me any problem, will it work fine on CentOS 5.3?

I'm running 3.4.1 and SQLExplorer works fine.

In the beginning I extracted plugin and features directory to my eclipse directory but I could not see SQLExplorer prospective.

Now I extracted complete downloaded zip file and executed sqlexplorer. It opened new Window like Eclipse from which I connected to MySQL.

I am very new to Linux. I don't know if this is correct way to start sqlexplorer or it starts as eclipse prospective.

But I can execute sql commands from the eclipse like window which opened after run sqlexplorer executable.

Again I am very new to Linux.

Updated eclipse through update site.

Now I see SQLExplorer perspective in Eclipse.


Thank you.
