JDBC Explorer Logo

Welcome to the JDBC Explorer home page.  I am J.R. Onyschak, the author of JDBC Explorer.  I have created this  page to assist people in the use of JDBC Explorer as well as gathering feedback   from users.  This page will be filled out as time passes.  I am in the process  of creating documentation and putting together an easy to use release.  Please bare with me as I get familiar with SourceForge and get my act together.

About JDBC Explorer

JDBC Explorer is a Java application that allows users to query, insert, delete, and update an RDBMS. It can connect to any RDBMS that has JDBC 2.0 compliant drivers.

Future Plans

JDBC Explorer will be under constant development for quite a while.  I currently am working on documentation, this web page, and putting together an easy to use release.


I created JDBC Explorer to assist in my day job. I wanted to be able to quickly check values of the different database used in our system. I was not satisfied with the user interface the databases supplied, so started looking for alternatives. In searching, I found SQL Explorer (or SQL Worker, I am not sure what the correct title is) by Mario Muller. This worked fine for JDK 1.1 and Swing 1.0.3, but there were a few bugs and I was moving to JDK 1.2, so I created JDBC Explorer as a Java 2 clone. I have not been able to contact the original author, but would like to thank him for the original tool.
