I'm looking for an Front-End GUI for MySql. I've found a few, but I want to hear your suggestions / recomendations before I jump into any of them.
The GUI I'm looking for is mainly:
- Works under Xwin
- Simpy data entry and query is enough
- Better not only work for MySql, but aslo other SQL3/SQL92 compliant
- freeware, GPL and better open source
Tools meets above requirements that I found so far are (selected listing):
Gentry aids in the entry of data into a MySQL database through the use of a
GUI. It requires a database and table on a local MySQL server and connects
using your username. From there, the program builds a data entry screen based
on the table columns.
Depends on: mysql gtk-1.2
WIDD is a front-end application to manage databases through an X11
interface. You can create new instances or classes and submit search
queries. In fact WIDD replaces psql of the PosttgreSQL package for
example. WIDD can be used with all databases conform with SQL3/SQL92 standard
(like MySQL or PosrgreSQL) with JDBC drivers. It requires JDK 1.1.x in order
But each of them depend on some extra tools that I haven't got time to look into...
Any experiences / suggestions? Thanks

Check out http://kphpdev.sourceforge.net/
It's still in beta, but it looks promising. It's actually a RAD environment for PHP, but it also has a SQL query analyzer and database admin kit. This one requires the KDE window manager, which I believe is the most complete window manager for X.
