Great to have native OS X tools for MySQL administration and development. The Dashboard widget is pretty nifty too.

"Totally unready for use"

April 26, 2006  |  By DulcetTone

 |  Version: MySQL Administrator 1.1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
A brief spin reveals this tool shows considerable promise, but I cannot imagine it passed any QA process whatsoever.

Create a table and add a few rows. You'll find that the task is not intuitive, but that is the minor issue. The vexing issue is that it shows you some malformed SQL code it wants to run to create the table (e.g.: it will list your one PRIMARY_KEY column twice, and it will make all your columns become "INT" despite the fact that some were other values).

So, if you then try to edit the table's schema to rectify these issues, the dialog box tells you you made no changes at all.

I went to the developer website and found a later version (1.1.5). Although this one seemed smarter in that it recognized that indeed I was altering the table, it crashed before completing the operation.

I have to think the developers should insist on a comprehensive test plan before releasing this. It is absolutely not ready for use (unless someone else considers making a table to be a "reach"). I'm glad I did not attempt using it with a database with actual data in it.

I look forward to progress on this tool, but they have a credibility issue at present. FYI -- the current Windows version is 1.1.9. I will try it out and see if at least there is OS X hope for the future.

"Better than PHPMyAdmin"

August 24, 2005  |  By Cyberpawz

 |  Version: MySQL Administrator 1.0.22

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Web based GUI is fine, but MySQL Administrator is one of the best pieces of software I have used in a looooong time. I had been using PHPMyAdmin religiously for the past three years, and this software blows PHPMyAdmin away without attempting.

I have been using this software since it's beta status, and it has gotten better and better with each rev. I am using Tiger, MySQL 4.1.13, PHP 5.0.4, and more databases than I care to admit.

I would recommend this software for the newest users, to the experienced Gurus... it allows to change passwords, create names, and design databases nearly by a touch of a button. What more could you ask for as an Admin?

Oh, did I forget to mention, it's the best price ever... free!

"Very unstable"

Summary

I found this app extremely unstable, it crashes when attempting various commands and the interface doesn't always react in a predictable manner. Thumbs down from me.

"Nearly there..."

June 14, 2005  |  By jlianoglou

 |  Version: MySQL Administrator 1.0.21

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
First of all, this is really beautiful. It's the best database management application I've ever used.

The interface is clean. It provides access to really advanced features, and provides some explanation as well (particularly useful for the more obscure functionality it exposes). It also provides some very useful realtime usage information (server load, memory consumption, listing of active connections), as well as user management, and handy maintenance functionality like backing up and restoring data.

The table editor is coming along, but is notably missing support for working with foreign keys. It doesn't even recognize existing foreign keys.

For now, any serious database design still needs PHPMyAdmin (or your favorite mature tool of choice), but what I'm here to tell you is: that's poised to change any time now.

This is a really great app. I'll give it all 5 stars when foreign key support is added!

Summary

This app really show that the MySQL team has a strong commitment to Mac OS X.
It's a true Aqua-app indeed, though it still might have some bugs and shortcomings, I'll give it 5 for the effort!
