Top 10 MySQL GUI tools-Alibaba Cloud Developer Community


most relational databases are obviously different from MS Access. They have two distinct parts: the backend serves as the data warehouse and the front end serves as the user interface for data component communication. This design is very ingenious. It processes two-layer programming models in parallel, separating the data layer from the user interface. At the same time, database software manufacturers focus on their product strengths: Data storage and management. At the same time, it facilitates the third party to create a large number of applications and makes the interaction between various databases stronger. Such products include Embarcadero Rapid SQL and Oracle SQL Developer. Here are ten excellent MySQL graphical interfaces.
