Does anyone Know any KDE application for working with databases in a unified way? It must support several DBs (sqlite, MySQL, Oracle). GTK apps are also welcome :)

A very nice one! :) –  kolypto Sep 8 '09 at 15:36
When you say "Found this..." it really means that you never ever used it? –  innaM Sep 8 '09 at 16:12
FYI This isn't free. OP didn't specify, but though it should be mentioned. –  basszero Sep 8 '09 at 17:45
I believe this one has most features one may need, thanks a lot! :) –  kolypto Sep 8 '09 at 18:46

SQuirreL SQL is a Java-based application that can connect to several DBMS, providing there is a JDBC driver for it.

It's free and open-source.

Kexi may be interesting too... Of course it won't be and won't look that advanced like Aqua Data Studio does... Kexi's more like (from a Windows view) what MS Access is to databases while Aqua Data Studio more looks like SQL Management Studio looking at the screenshots.

But Aqua looks very interesting - I'll keep an eye on that. +1
