Penuel: A free database browser program

PENUEL: A browser program for relational databases

I am pleased to announce the release of my free software application Penuel.
Penuel is a function-oriented, no-frills browser program for relational
databases that are JDBC-compliant.  Penuel is a 100% pure Java application 
using the Swing and JDBC APIs.


    * use with any relational database system that provides a JDBC driver
    * define database connection profiles and re-use for express login
    * view connection properties and database meta-data
    * customize database access by setting properties for JDBC Connection
and Statement objects

    * visually browse database objects exposed by the JDBC API
    * view database objects in object browser in tree structure
    * customize object lists in the object browser filtering by catalog,
schema and object name and more.
    * view object properties with a mouse-right click

    * execute SQL commands to retrieve or update information in a database.
    * execute batches of SQL commands interactively.
    * drag and drop object names from object browser into SQL
command pane
    * drag and drop driver-specific SQL keywords into SQL command pane
    * save your SQL statements to files for subsequent re-use.

    * view result sets in table or a selected row as a form
    * view meta-data for any column in current resultset.
    * print result sets in current size or fit-to-page

    * centralized maintenance of application settings and preference
    * import and export application settings (transfer settings easily
between computers)
    * switch look and feel seamlessly between Ocean, Motif and Windows
    * ready reference for public final static int values in java.sql
interfaces and classes (needed for interpreting meta-data)
    * view property information for currently executing JVM

    * meaningful context sensitive help
    * an update checker that notifies you if a newer version of Penuel has
been released.

    * Tested with DB2, Oracle, Sybase and HSQLDB.
    * Requires JRE 1.5


    * The user guide provides detailed information on all of the application
    * The installation guide is in the root directory of the Penuel
distribution file.
    * The Penuel blog at xgeorge.blogspot.com provides uptodate information
on new releases


Penuel can be downloaded from www.xgeorge.com.  The user guide is also 
available on-line
at this site.


If you would like to give me feedback (or a better day job), please send
email to


with Penuel as the subject.

Thank you.
