Thought of the Week:- "True knowledge is when one knows the limitations of one's knowledge."
DB Cruiser:- http://www.maththinking.com/maththinking/dbcruiser.html Platform Independent. Shareware (Trial Version is available).

DB Cruiser is a web database access tool with reporting functionality. It allows access to SQL databases from web browsers and explore information about databases, view and manipulate data, generate reports, and load bulk data into tables. Any database with JDBC 2.0 or later version driver is supported can be accessed from web browsers without installing any software in the desktop PC. The software is having one HTML Report generator and it can generate the report in Spreadsheets also. Using this software, one can load bulk data in many formats, including spreadsheets, and user defined delimiters. It can also Transfer or Covert between Databases, or even between different database products. It also allows to enter and execute any standard SQL statements.

DB Cruiser is Install Once on the Server, Access From Anywhere via Browsers. Therefore, a project, even a whole organization, may need to install only one copy of DB Cruiser in a server for all the people in the project or organization to use. That means, by using DB Cruiser, a organization can save money for buying only one license, save time for installing only once, and save maintenance cost for maintaining only at one place. In addition exploring tables and stored procedures, execute SQL statements, display table column definitions, primary keys, foreign keys, and table indexes, etc., DB Cruiser has the following major features:
