AquaFold releases Enterprise Oracle Database Administration Tools for Windows, Linux and OSX

Mountain View, CA — May 3, 2006 — AquaFold, Inc has released Aqua Data Studio 4.7, a powerful, multi-platform application that provides complete database administration and query tools for Oracle, DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Sybase, Informix, and PostgreSQL. With a single program, database managers can save time and money in the design, development, and maintenance of enterprise relational databases.

Version 4.7 includes powerful Oracle DBA Tools: The Instance Manager makes it easy to control the Oracle instance. You can view and modify server parameters, and monitor and back up the Oracle controlfile. The Storage Manager lets Oracle users manage tablespaces and datafiles by making it simple to visualize and maintain storage, including object and file IO statistics. The new Oracle Rollback Manager lets you monitor and maintain rollback segments, including current statements, transactions, and execution plans. The Log Manager gives users control over redo logs and archive logs. The Security Manager lets you manage users, roles, profiles, permissions, and security.

Version 4.7 also features an Oracle Session Manager which lets you kill/disconnect sessions, start traces, and monitor open cursors and user queries with execution plans. The SGA Manager gives you control over the entire Oracle SGA area, including the SQL area, Lib Cache, and Lib Cache Stats. The Server Statistics give you valuable summary statistics for the Oracle instance, waits and latches.

Other new features in version 4.7 work with all supported databases. The rewritten Auto-Completion Parser supports almost any SQL syntax. The SQL Formatter provides user customization when formatting SQL statements. The new Shortcut Toolbar lets you drag a node from the schema browser, and create a shortcut by dropping it onto your custom toolbar. The new Visual Query builder allows users to graphically select tables, views, and relationships to build queries. The Query Analzyer now supports parameterized scripts; the user may have scripts with defined parameters so that Aqua Data Studio will prompt for the values of the parameters before executing the script.

Version 4.7’s Schema Browser Filtering lets you filter objects in the object folders of the schema browser. The new Query Analyzer Permissions, based on server types and server connections, prevents catastrophic mistakes by restricting the type of SQL statements that may be executed in the query window.

Aqua Data Studio’s new features allow users to extract data and database designs, visualize them, and migrate them to other database vendors. Developed with the Java programming language, Aqua Data Studio supports all major operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, Solaris, and the Linux operating system.

Aqua Data Studio provides an integrated database environment with a single consistent interface to all major relational databases. This allows database administrators and developers to tackle multiple tasks simultaneously from one application. Aqua Data Studio’s sophisticated Query Analyzer makes it simple to work on database scripts, with specific RDBMS syntax highlighting and auto-completion to develop and test scripts.
