Projects / OilCan


OilCan is a native Universal Binary multithreaded query tool for PostgreSQL. It supports multiple query windows and multiple queries in one window, and includes a basic schema browser. Each query window gets its own connection. All queries run in their own thread, allowing other operations to continue while a long running query is running.

    Release Notes: The browser automatically refreshes after changes are made in the query window. A refresh button is available in the Database Browser for changes made outside of OilCan. The status bar at the bottom now gives result information about non SELECT queries. Double clicking in the Database Browser inserts the TABLE, VIEW, FUNCTION, or SEQUENCE name in the query window. Double clicking on a field will insert the field name in the query window. The ability to drag items from the Database Browser to the query window was added. Login information can be sorted by Name, Database, or Host.
