Integrated Database Console

The latest PhpStorm EAP (build 94.430) contains a good number changes in Database-related functionality. Namely:

  • A dedicated Database Console tool-window
  • Сonsole-like UI keeps input and output in one place and retains the highlighting for execution history
  • Configurable keyboard shortcuts for all Console actions (in IDE Settings)
  • Per-result Page Up, Page Down and Refresh actions
  • Complete support for In-Memory Databases (try running some DDL in Console then click Refresh Tables and all the tables will be loaded in the Data Sources tree)
  • Quick Table Contents Lookup using the standard Quick Documentation Lookup action. Try Ctrl+Q on a table name anywhere in the IDE!

Try all this in the latest EAP and let us know what you think.
