Apple's Cocoa Spawns SQLGrinder For OS X

Advenio Software has released SQLGrinder, a Cocoa app for Mac OS X. SQLGrinder is designed to allow Mac OS X developers to tie in to SQL databases and is compatible with many enterprise database servers such as Oracle8i. According to Advenio Software:

Advenio Software, a company specializing in Mac OS X application development, today announced the release and immediate availability of SQLGrinder 1.0 for Mac OS X. SQLGrinder, a native Mac OS X SQL editor and developer tool, allows developers to easily create, edit and execute SQL queries as well as browse their database structures. Using SQLGrinder and JDBC drivers, developers can connect to databases that support JDBC 2.0, including Oracle 8i, MySQL, PostgreSQL, FrontBase, Openbase SQL, and Microsoft SQL Server.

Because SQLGrinder is built using Appleis Cocoa framework, it looks and feels like a Macintosh OS X application and adheres to Appleis Aqua Human Interface Guidelines. SQLGrinder provides many tools that add to developer productivity and make building SQL queries and database schemas easier than it has ever been on the Macintosh:

  • Drop-in support for any database with an available JDBC driver
  • Multiple editor windows and schema browsers
  • Result sets displayed in data tables
  • Export of delimited text from data tables
  • Data snapshots that provide temporary result set views
  • Interactive query library that maintains query history
  • Built with Cocoa, follows the Aqua Human Interface Guidelines
