MYSQL database modeling and change management

Filed under: mysql, tool — michaelangela @ 12:23 pm

I currently use Navicat for MySQL to manage databases (especially nice for managing multiple sites via ssh). Change management is always an issue with snapshots being manually handled with data dumps. There are very helpful sync tools within Navicat but I’d like to try this to see if it helps the way I think it will. The partos of particular interest are the change management and, something I need to learn more of, forward engineering of a database.

MySQL :: MySQL Workbench 5.1

MySQL Workbench enables a DBA, developer, or data architect to visually design, generate, and manage all types of databases including Web, OLTP, and data warehouse databases. It includes everything a data modeler needs for creating complex ER models, and also delivers key features for performing difficult change management and documentation tasks that normally require much time and effort. MySQL Workbench is available on Windows, Linux and Mac OS.
