SQL Development

dbForge Edge offers a powerful set of features to simplify SQL coding tasks. The code assistance module offers context-based keyword and object suggestions, code completion, instant syntax validation, customizable code formatting profiles, debugging, and code refactoring capabilities. Another feature worth mentioning is Query Builder – a tool that allows users to construct even the most complex SQL queries effortlessly in a visual mode.

Database Management

The solution incorporates schema and data comparison tools, enabling users to identify and manage differences in database schemas and table data. With automatically generated synchronization scripts, changes can be seamlessly deployed to target platforms. Comparison and synchronization jobs can also be automated, improving user efficiency.

Also, dbForge Edge delivers Source Control, an integrated tool that enables version control of database schemas and static data, available for MariaDB, MySQL, and SQL Server databases. With its help, users can compare database versions, commit and revert changes with dependency awareness, view and resolve conflicts, and examine the history of changes. Source Control supports all popular version control systems, such as Git (including GitHub, GitLab, Azure DevOps, and Bitbucket), Apache Subversion (SVN), TFVC, Mercurial (Hg), Perforce (P4), and SourceGear Vault.


The solution features a robust Data Generator capable of producing high-quality test data in varying volumes and formats. Additionally, the Query Profiler tool enables comprehensive analysis and optimization of queries, thereby saving valuable time and resources.
