Build Status

Command-line shell for issuing SQL to relational databases via JDBC.

History

A fork of the Marc Prud'hommeaux's sqlline project, also incorporating changes made by the LucidDB project, now modernized, mavenized and forkable in github.

License and distribution

sqlline is distributed under the 3-clause BSD License, meaning that you are free to redistribute, modify, or sell it with almost no restrictions.

It is distributed via the Maven Central Repository.

Getting started

Copy the sqlline script (or sqlline.bat for Windows), sqlline-VERSION-jar-with-dependencies.jar and a JDBC driver jar into the same directory. (Or just put sqlline on your PATH.)

$ sqlline -d com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
sqlline> !connect jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/scott user password
sqlline> !tables
+------------+--------------+-------------+---------------+----------+
| TABLE_CAT  | TABLE_SCHEM  | TABLE_NAME  |  TABLE_TYPE   | REMARKS  |
+------------+--------------+-------------+---------------+----------+
| null       | SCOTT        | BONUS       | TABLE         | null     |
| null       | SCOTT        | DEPT        | TABLE         | null     |
| null       | SCOTT        | EMP         | TABLE         | null     |
| null       | SCOTT        | SALGRADE    | TABLE         | null     |
| null       | metadata     | COLUMNS     | SYSTEM_TABLE  | null     |
| null       | metadata     | TABLES      | SYSTEM_TABLE  | null     |
+------------+--------------+-------------+---------------+----------+
sqlline> SELECT 1 + 2 AS c;

| C |

sqlline> !quit
