Database is an important part of any system or application. Everything exists through data. Database instability can lead to unexpected system behavior. The data will be unusable if the database crashes or the data is stored disorganizedly. Thus, database testing helps us identify such vulnerabilities in the system and minimize the risks associated with data integrity before the system is put into operation.
This article will discuss HeidiSQL, an open-source database management tool that supports MariaDB, MySQL, Microsoft SQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. To manage the HeidiSQL database, the user just needs to log in to the local or remote server by creating a session. Within this session, the user works with MySQL databases on the MySQL server.
The functionality of the program is sufficient for working with general and more complex databases. It is worth mentioning that HeidiSQL was created for the Windows platform and only works on Windows only.
