When it comes to connecting to a database, Navicat this graphical and easy-to-use database connection tool is well suited to meet your various needs. But since that when it executes statements like delete from table, update table set column=’value’, you would get no indication if they were executed without additional conditions. As a result, database maintainers can cause data disasters if they are not careful enough during routine maintenance. That’s why some companies are starting to ask for a switch to DBeaver.

DBeaver is a free, open-source and cross-platform (based on Java) universal database tool and SQL client specially developed for developers and database administrators on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. It provides a simple and user-friendly graphical user interface for viewing database structures, executing SQL queries and scripts, browsing and exporting data, processing BLOB/CLOB data, modifying database structures, and much more.

AppNee provides the DBeaver Enterprise Edition multilingual pre-activated full installers, all versions universal license agent, as well as portable full registered versions for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit.

// Installation Notes //

for Enterprise Edition v7.x.x with Universal License Agent:

  1. Download and install/extract the latest version of DBeaver Enterprise Edition from official site
  2. Download and put the license agent file ‘dbeaver-agent.jar‘ somewhere
  3. Open the ‘dbeaver.ini‘ file under installation path, and append this line (like: -javaagent:/absolute/path/to/dbeaver-agent.jar) to the bottom (do make sure the path is correct, otherwise the program can not launch), e.g.:
    • Windows: -javaagent:C:\Users\neo\dbeaver-agent.jar
    • Mac: -javaagent:/Users/neo/dbeaver-agent.jar
    • Linux: -javaagent:/home/neo/dbeaver-agent.jar
  4. Done

*** If you see this error: Error opening zip file or JAR manifest missing : dbeaver-agent.jar, the solution is:

  • Try to use the absolute path of jar files

// Prompts //

  • For v6.2+, there are a few things to note:
    • on Windows, use ZIP package (x64x32)
    • on Mac, use DMG package (x64)
    • on Linux, use .TAR.GZ package (x64x32)
  • You’d better not use DBeaver’s built-in JRE, because it’s a castrated version
