pgAdmin is a comprehensive design and management interface for PostgreSQL database, designed to run on most operating systems. The software is written in C++ and uses the excellent wxWidgets cross platform toolkit. In every environment, pgAdmin is a native application. The application is executed in binary code, not in a virtual machine, therefore offering excellent performance.
pgAdmin is designed to answer the needs of all users, from writing simple SQL queries to developing complex databases. The graphical interface supports all PostgreSQL features and makes administration easy. The application also includes a syntax highlighting SQL editor, a server-side code editor, an SQL/batch/shell job scheduling agent, support for the Slony-I replication engine and much more. Server connection may be made using TCP/IP or Unix Domain Sockets (on *nix platforms), and may be SSL encrypted for security. No additional drivers are required to communicate with the database server.
