A self-proclaimed ‘old school database guy’, Cal Evans gives us an honest and pretty thorough review of the latest version of MySQL Workbench –worth your time if you’re not happy with the MySQL ERD tool you use now, or even if you are. He aims for a real-world simulation test of the workbench, with 18 applications open simultaneously on his desktop, with the test database being quite simple but shedding light on many of the products features. He covers the whole spectrum of his results from good to bad and concludes that while MySQL Workbench isn’t perfect it is probably good enough.
