Slick vs DbVisualizer: What are the differences?
What is Slick? Database query and access library for Scala. It is a modern database query and access library for Scala. It allows you to work with stored data almost as if you were using Scala collections while at the same time giving you full control over when a database access happens and which data is transferred.
What is DbVisualizer? Database tool for developers, DBAs and analysts. It is the universal database tool for developers, DBAs and analysts. It is the ultimate solution since the same tool can be used on all major operating systems accessing a wide range of databases.
Slick and DbVisualizer can be primarily classified as "Database" tools.
Some of the features offered by Slick are:
