Three Usability requests from SquirrelSQL

Postby ronjouch » Wed Sep 03, 2014 3:35 pm

I'm starting to migrate to DBeaver from SquirrelSQL. The UI is much more pleasant, and it has some neat features! However, there are a couple of features I sorely miss:

1. Persistent history of executed queries

Under SquirrelSQL, all executed queries are easily retrievable through a dropdown menu:

Each query I execute is available here, readily available when in one month I'll need a specific one again. It's different from two close DBeaver features:
* Templates: I don't want to have to save my today's troubleshooting queries, I want them to be readily available for when I have to do a similar task
* Query Manager: As far as I know, it doesn't persist across sessions / application restart.

2. Display executed query near query results

Under SquirrelSQL, when executing a query, the query is displayed right above the results. This proves very convenient when executing multiple queries at once, generating multiple tabs. Under DBeaver I have to remember the order of my queries, or look at the result set and guess what the query was, while under Squirrel I instantly know what was executed:

3. Remember the vertical height of Editor pane vs. Results pane

When running a query, DBeaver allocates 50% height for the query, and 50% for the results. However, most of the time, I'd only need minimum space for the query, and lots of room to inspect the results. It would be nice if Editor/Results height percentage split was persisted:

Hope these features can make it someday! Thanks for your great work!

Hi ronjouch,

Regarding 2: You can already hover over the results tab and see the original query.

You may have multiple queries (as many as you wish) in a single SQL editor. just use Ctrl-Enter to execute query under cursor.
I usually have one SQL script per connection and this script contains all typical queries for this connection.

Query manager persistence is in TODO list.

Any progress 1. Persistent history of executed queries?

Thanks

Persistent history of executed queries are available in the execution log or under window>query manager

It is not persistent. After restart is it empty.
