The Best SQL Tool for Mac: Updated

oneSql 1.0.1 was released earlier today and I'm very pleased to say that there was not a single bug fix 🙂 Surely a testament to the guys and girls who participated in the Beta program earlier this year. So a very big 'thanks' to them 🙂

This update consists of a change to the way the SQL Keywords mechanism works. Previously the file SQLKeywords.sjc was loaded from the application folder or the SupportFiles folder and all the SQL keywords were loaded into an array and this array was accessed after each keystroke when typing occured in the SQL Text Area. If a match was found then the appropriate action was taken, ie: the word was capitalised, or coloured etc.

In version 1.0.1 the array of SQL keywords is built internally without reference to the SQLKeywords.sjc file. However if this file is present any words within this file are added to the SQL keywords array. So for example any words that you wish to be treated as keywords for your own purposes, or any keywords you find that I have missed when building the keyword array, can be added in a file called SQLKeywords.sjc which needs to be located in the same folder as the oneSql application or in the SupportFiles subfolder.

In addition to the changes described above there are half a dozen small interface tweaks which just tidy things up very slightly.

oneSql Database Tool 1.0: Press Release

[prMac.com] Ripley, Derbyshire. United Kingdom – chol.technology are pleased to announce Version 1 of a brand new MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB and SQLite SQL Query and Data Import / Export program for Mac OSX, Windows and Linux. Three Operating Systems, Four Databases and Five Languages Supported including in addition to English; French, Spanish, Italian and German. Clear and unrestrictive Software Licensing, putting customers needs first.

oneSql is a stand alone, lightweight, no install neededSQL Database Tool for OSX, Windows and Linux.

The target audience for oneSql is initially technical people, Database Administrators, Developers, or ‘power users’ who need a simple, efficient, cross platform SQL Tool on their computer, or in the Utilities folder of their portable USB Drive. DBA’s, System Admins, Developers, Accountants – all have a need for oneSql.

These users may currently have a favourite tool for each operating system platform they use. I’d like to supplement or even replace their existing tools with oneSql. I hope to do this by focusing on the features that are most important to them and eliminating those that seek to overcomplicate competing products.

We have also introduced new functionality that will likely interest those same individuals who can now get additional benefits from using oneSql. For example the ability to put the Mac, Windows and Linux versions of oneSql onto a USB Drive and then connect the drive to virtually any computer and load and use oneSql, without installation, is fairly unique and extremely useful.

With the unique ‘User Prompt Fields’ functionality, use within an organisation can extend far beyond the Technical User and to the desktop of the End User. Scripts written by the Technical User can be run as Reports by the End User without modification as each variable, for example Data Start and Date Finish, is prompted for appropriately. The End User needs to know nothing about SQL or the script.

Benefits Include:

  • One SQL Tool for Mac, Windows and Linux
  • One SQL Tool for SQLite, PostgreSQL, MariaDB and MySQL
  • Unlimited Time Limit for the Trial Edition
  • Unrestricted Features for the Trial Edition
  • Small and Lightweight, Approx 20Mb for all Versions
  • Speed with Reliability
  • Scripts Library to Store Your Scripts for Future Use
  • Easy and Simple to Use
  • No Installation Required
  • Save Time with Data Import Templates
  • Saved Connections Stored Safely using Encryption
  • Get Started Quickly with the Examples Database
  • Productivity with User Prompt Fields
  • Increased Database Security
  • Full Manual Included as a PDF
  • Written and Supported in the United Kingdom
  • Simple, Fair and Inexpensive Licensing
  • Zero Effort Corporate Licensing
  • Corporate Licensing Available
  • 50% Discount for Education Establishments and Students
  • 50% Discount for Charities and Non Profits

Features Include:

  • SQLite, MariaDB, PostgreSQL or MySQL

  • Option to prefix Columns with Table Name
  • Option to append a Comma to the Columns
  • User Input Prompts
  • Enhanced Connection Encryption Options
  • Parsing of Multiple Statements
  • Sequential Statement Execution
  • Highlighted Statement Execution

Taking Security Seriously:

There are two choices for how encryption is used to secure your database connection information. The first choice encrypts the connection password in such a way that it is then specific to your computer. If you copy oneSql and the settings files onto another computer then the stored credentials will not work. This choice is ideal for use in a more secure environment, where for example access to databases is only permitted from select computers and / or locations.

The second choice encrypts the connection password in such a way that you can copy the oneSql folder from your computer, put it onto your laptop, or another computer, and your stored credentials will work fine.

This also means that you can copy oneSql onto a USB Drive, run it from that USB Drive on any Mac, Windows or Linux machine you plug it into.

Licensing:

With the development of oneSql came the development of a new Software Licensing scheme, designed to put customers first and to ensure they we never punish the genuine, fee paying customer for the actions of the software pirate. Our customer friendly, super simple software license is shown below:

‘You can copy and use oneSql on your own personal computers with one instance of oneSql allowed to be in use at any one time. You can put oneSql on a USB device and plug that into anyones computer and use oneSql from the USB device for as long as you need. All Licenses are valid for all supported Operating Systems, all supported Languages and all supported Databases.’

Half price licenses are available to Educational Establishments and Students also Charities and Non Profit Organisations.

Software Referral Scheme:

Also new with oneSql is a Software Referral Scheme. Payment will be made to an existing customer thirty days after a new customer makes a purchase based on an existing customers referral, and quoting the existing customers referral ID within forty eight hours of purchase. The payment amount is ten percent of the new customers spend (before taxes) and the payment will be made via Paypal.

Pricing:

oneSql is available from $30 for the Single User Edition

Availability:

oneSql is available now.

Testimonial:

‘I believe oneSql has found its niche; simple and powerful. Unlike many other SQL Tools oneSql is slim and easy to work with’ – Dennis, Beta Tester

Something Different:

We wanted to do something different to mark the release of oneSql, so we have decided that the first 10 people to purchase any edition of oneSql, with the exception of the Single User Standard Edition, will receive a Limited Edition oneSql mug (1 of only 20 in existence) as well as a goody bag of assorted promotional items and 10% cash back after 30 days. We’ll ship these bonus items anywhere in the world.

The first 100 purchasers of oneSql Single User Standard Edition receive 10% cash back after 30 days.

oneSql is dedicated to Alison Fowler RIP. See ‘ya Ali B. We miss you.

oneSql Multi Database Tool: Final Beta

The Final Beta of my Cross Platform, Multi Language, Multi Database Tool – oneSql is now available. Hopefully I’ve got everything right and it performs as expected with no (major!) bugs. Existing Beta Testers can download from the usual place, and new Beta Testers can sign up HERE.

Prior to release I have to finish the Manual, finalise Pricing, setup Paypal and also setup a Sample Database for new users to use during their Trial Mode. I also need to put the oneSql website live … mmm more than I realised … 🙂

The final artwork has arrived back for the oneSql box and the oneSql manual, you can see the images below:

onesqlcoverimages

Note that for this final Beta you should delete both your Settings and your Preferences file as there have been changes involving encryption.

For information on Software Licensing for oneSql, have a look at my recent blog posts on this subject, here and here.

I wanted to do something different to mark the release of oneSql, so I am toying with the following idea of a bonus or incentive, I’d love to know your opinions:

The first 10 people to purchase any edition of oneSql (except the Single User Standard Edition) will receive a Limited Edition oneSql mug (1 of only 20 in existence) as well as a goody bag of assorted promotional items. In addition they will receive a printed and signed edition of my computer security ebook, ‘Securing the Network’. I may even throw a T-Shirt in there as well 🙂 I will ship this bonus to anywhere in the world. 

The first 100 purchasers of oneSql Single User Standard Edition receive a voucher worth $5 off their next purchase from chol.technology.

As always – leave you comments below. If you don’t talk I can’t listen.

Software Licensing and Software Piracy: Part 2

Part One of this article finished with the following question:

What is it fair to expect your customer to do to license their copy of your product, and so help protect your product, your sales, your livelihood and the future investment and development in a product that is important to both you ?

I believe that it is fair to expect the customer to do something to help the software developer protect their product, after all if the developer doesn’t stay in business then the product doesn’t have a future and the customer could be left high and dry.

That’s not to say the customer can be expected to jump through any hoops … the emphasis is on the developer to provide a method of licensing their product that can be done quickly and easily and thus encourage the customer to purchase and use a legitimate copy of the software rather than paying a visit to **insert name of dodgy virus ridden download sites here** or similar.

My opinion is that if I, as a user, purchase a piece of software for my own use, then I should be entitled to copy it onto my PC and my Mac and my Laptop for use whenever I like. I should also be able to copy it onto a USB Drive, connect the drive to a friends computer and use the product there also. I should not however copy the software to my friends computer thereby giving them the ability to use it in my absence. I expect to have to follow a documented procedure to identify to the software that I am the legitimate owner. This should be a simple and one off process.

I believe the previous paragraph is fair to both the customer and the software developer. I believe most people are honest and do not mind paying a reasonable price for a quality product. The software industry has in some ways become its own worse enemy with some companies having complex and unworkable, illogical and unfair licensing practices. ‘We need the customer more than they need us’ is something developers should be bearing in mind.

What prompted me to look into Software Licensing and then to write about it and to ask for feedback from other colleagues, professionals and interested parties, is that I have a new product soon to be released. In my opinion every new product is an opportunity to improve the purchasing and licensing experience for your customer. You only really get the one chance to get it right.

oneSql (www.onesql.uk) runs natively on Windows, Mac and Linux. It supports five languages and four databases. It is a tool that some DBA’s and Developers will want to put on a USB drive and carry around. Does (should?) copying oneSql to a USB Drive go against the Software License ?

No. Restricting access to a single computer either by the installation of Configuration Files or Registry entries goes against the design of Utility software. Utility software which in my humble opinion is the Developers or DBA’s equivalent of the tradesmans tools.

Can you imagine a screwdriver being licensed to only be used on a given object ? What if you had to pay for another license for every object on which you used your screwdriver ? Forget the expense, it’s just not convenient. I don’t want to punish legitimate users of my software in a vain attempt to stop people stealing my software.

The Software License I have settled on for oneSql is simple, and is basically per User / Concurrent. It is so simple it is summed up in the following, single, paragraph.

The oneSql Software License

You can copy and use oneSql on your own personal computers with one instance of oneSql allowed to be in use at any one time. You can put oneSql on a USB device and plug that into anyones computer and use oneSql from the USB device for as long as you need. All Licenses are valid for all supported Operating Systems, all supported Languages and all supported Databases.

I am making it easy for the customer to know if they are infringing the spirit of the Software License agreement. I am not stopping them, or even making it particularly difficult for them to disregard the license, but I am asking them for honesty. If that fails then there are several other incentives to help the customer make the right decision …

Active Incentive: Referral Fee
With a referral fee paid to a oneSql customer when they recommend someone else, it is in the customers financial interest to get their friends and associates to purchase a oneSql license.

The following short and simple (can you see a theme here?) paragraph explains.

The oneSql Software Referral Scheme

A payment is made to an existing customer 30 days after a new customer makes a purchase based on an existing customers referral, and quoting the existing customers referral ID within 48 hours of purchase. The payment amount is 10% of the new customers spend (before taxes) and the payment will be made via Paypal.

Passive Incentive 1:
The licensed user name is displayed in the titlebar of the startup window as well as on the main window. Hopefully this is a deterrent as the original purchaser does not want their name showing up elsewhere and the user doesn’t want to see someone elses name where theirs should be.

Passive Incentive 2:
oneSql is fairly priced. That’s self explanatory. Customers do not want to feel they are being ‘ripped off’ or being taken advantage of.

Passive Incentive 3:
Offer a choice of license types and schemes that not only give the user choice, but also offer additional discounts for worthy establishments, education and charities for example.

The different types of software license that are necessary in order to give the customer the choice they require, can also bring additional and unwanted complexity. In order to also give the customer the licensing choice as well as the simplicity they desire the additional license types are all costed at N * x. N is the Single User Standard Price, here shown as $30 and x is the multiplier. An example is shown below:

onesqlpricinggrid

Trial Mode

The above incentives are for a potential customer who has obtained an illegitimate license from somewhere and I am trying to attract them into the fold. What about a customer who has downloaded a Trial Edition of the software ? For them we have to give them the chance to see the full capabilities of the software, while also convincing them to reach for their wallet. Trial Mode restrictions can make or break a product. For oneSql I have implemented the following:

  • Restricted the Saved Connections to Four
  • Generated a Nag Message after Every Query

Note that I have not restricted the Trial to 30 days or similar, nor have I restricted the functionality in any way. The potential customer can still see and access the full capabilities of the product, I have just made it a little bit less convenient than if they had purchased a licence.

In order for the Trial Mode to be successful for you and the potential customer it is necessary to again pay attention to the overall customer experience.

For oneSql I supply a configured sample database so that the user can experiment with the product immediately. I also supply a full, quality manual. Something missing in the vast majority of software products available today. Will every customer read it ? No. Will a high percentage of customers notice if it’s not there? Probably. The customers experience is what will get you a sale,  or not. I believe that is how it should be.

Part Three of this document discusses some of the technical methods, issues and problems involved with Software Licensing.

oneSql: New Beta Available

There is a new Beta Edition of oneSql available. This update to oneSql adds an Import Data option to the Tools menu. This new menu option opens the Import Data window where you can setup your import structure.

This is done in the Configure tab of the Import Data window. You can select the type of file that you will be importing (delimited by Tab, Comma or Semicolon), you then select the Database Table you wish to import into.

The next thing is to Double Click the Columns that you wish to update.  Double Clicking in the Available Columns list moves the Column to the Selected Columns list. Double Clicking in the Selected Columns list moves the Column back out to the Available Columns list.

You can reorder columns by selecting the column and dragging it within the list.

imp1

Once you have configured the import to match your import file, click the Import tab. Here you can see we have two buttons.  The first button loads your text file into the import list and the second button marked Save creates the necessary import statements behind the scenes and writes your import file to your database.

imp2

Once the import is complete the import list is cleared and you are told how many rows have been processed.

Note the Checkbox options to ignore the first line (if you are using column headings in your source file) and to remove double quotes (often seen in badly formed import files).

The third tab option, Templates, is not yet implemented. This is where you will be able to save your import configurations and give them a name so that you can retrieve them quickly and use them again at a future time. A potentially very useful facility. Let us know if you would find this feature useful.

The oneSql Story: [1] Prologue

Prologue

icon_onesql_sml

To understand oneSql it is necessary to first be introduced to DataViewer. DataViewer is a small collection of software objects available for Xojo and RealStudio Developers to purchase and use within their own programs. DataViewer is a self contained window which can connect to any MySQL or SQLite database and perform SQL Queries and execute SQL commands against that database. Lots of features are supported including Export in several formats. DataViewer works on Mac OSX, Microsoft Windows and Linux.

Initially oneSql was created as a demonstration of what could be created using the DataViewer components. This is still the case and all the main functionality from oneSql will make it into the DataViewer component, and vice versa.

In addition however I’ve decided to make oneSql a Stand Alone, LightWeight, No Install Needed – SQL Database Tool for OSX, Windows and Linux – and possibly iOS and Android.

oneSql currently supports MySQL and SQLite. I intend to add support for PostgreSQL, Oracle and ODBC in future releases.

The target audience for oneSql is initially technical people, or ‘power users’ who need a simple, efficient, cross platform SQL Tool on their portable USB Drive. DBA’s, System Admins, Developers, Accountants – all have need of a tools such as oneSql.

These users probably currently have a favourite tool for each operating system platform they use. I’d like to replace their existing tools with oneSql. I hope to do this by focusing on the features that are most important to them and eliminating those that seek to overcomplicate the typical SQL product.

I also hope to introduce new functionality that will interest those same individuals who can get additional benefits from using oneSql. For example the ability to put the Mac, Windows and Linux versions of oneSql onto a USB Drive and then connect the drive to virtually any computer and load and use oneSql, without installation, is fairly unique.

Multi Language Support – English / Spanish / French and German, will all be featured in the initial Version 1.0 release. This will be the first time I have designed and written software from scratch to incorporate multiple language support.

Some of the Key Features and Benefits of oneSql available in the initial 1.0 Release are noted below:

  • Support for English / American / French / German / Italian and Spanish Languages
  • Native Support for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux
  • Support for SQLite and MySQL Databases
  • Simple, Fair and Inexpensive Licensing
  • Corporate Site Licensing Options
  • Half Price Licensing Option for Education and Non Profits
  • Simple, Easy to Use Design
  • High Quality of Software Engineering
  • Consistent use of Fonts and Icons
  • Small Size (14Mb) with No Installation Required
  • User Configurable User Interface Elements
  • Results Grid Customisation, Font Size, Stripe, Separator
  • Maintain a Session Connection Log
  • Maintain a Session History of SQL Statements
  • Double Click to Recall from SQL History
  • Option to Maintain a Permanent SQL History Log
  • Maintain a Database of Connections with Descriptions
  • SQL Syntax Highlighting (Caps, Bold and Colour)
  • User Editable Keyword List
  • Each Statement Execution Timed in Seconds / Microseconds
  • DB Objects Window to Choose Tables, Views and Columns
  • Data Export Facility, CSV (,), CSV(;), Tab Delimited and JSON
  • Save and Load External SQL Scripts
  • One Click Record Count – Any Table
  • One Click Fetch 20 Records – Any Table
  • One Click Fetch All Records – Any Table
  • Insert a SQL Query Template
  • Option to Automatically Prefix Columns with Table Name
  • Option to Automatically Append a Comma to the Column Names
  • Window Sizes and Positions Saved on Exit
  • User Interface Customisations Saved on Exit
  • Multiple Statements Parsed and Executed Sequentially
  • Unique ‘User Prompts’ Facility
  • A Social Menu, Easily Connecting You to Me
  • One Click Email Support

Some of the Features and Benefits I envisage for future editions of oneSql are noted below:

  • Information Cleansing and Conversion Scripts
  • Command Line Scripted Access
  • Piped Output Options
  • Add Support for PostGres
  • Add Support for Oracle
  • Add Support for ODBC
  • Test Support for MariaDB
  • Option to Publish the Results as HTML, to a Web Server
  • Access Privileges and Restrictions
  • Autocomplete for SQL Keywords
  • Online Manual
  • Store Scripts in the Settings Database
  • Option to Attach a Script to a Specific Connection
  • iOS and Android Versions

Summary

At the time of writing oneSql is just a few weeks from Version 1.0 Release.  Release will be via my website initially (www.stevencholerton.com) followed by the Apple Mac Store.

It’s interesting to me that my idea to release this product was met by a lot of anger and derision by someone who helps develop a product with which oneSql potentially competes.

At the end of the day the SQL Tool market is fragmented, and without any clear market leader there are opportunities for all.  As a recently passed friend of mine was fond of saying, ‘Even a Mouse can look at the Queen !’ Live and Let Live I reckon, there are enough wars in the world without starting any more, and let’s just agree to let our products do the talking.

oneSql: Multi Language Support

The latest Beta version of oneSql has additional Help Tags added, some small bug fixes, and much more significantly it has the infrastructure added to allow for a Multi-Language Interface. So for example if you are running a French Operating System on your computer then oneSql will have it’s User Interface shown in French, the same for German, Spanish and also Italian.

Currently it supports English(UK) (English) and English (American) – seriously! – where the USA drops a ‘u’ from Colour or puts a ‘Z’ where an ‘S’ belongs then this version will reflect that 😉

I’ve commissioned the other translations and so far have them available in German and Italian, once I have the other translations I will import them into oneSql and release a true Multi Lingual Beta version for testing.
