Stable release

SQL Workbench/J requires Java 11 or later. Using Java 17 is recommended.

Current stable release: Build 130, 2023-11-19 (Release History)

The generic package contains the jar file, the manual (HTML and PDF), shell scripts for Linux/Unix based systems (including MacOS) to start the application as well as a Windows® launcher and sample XSLT scripts.

The download includes the language files for English and German. The application's language can be changed from within the options dialog (Tools -> Options).

If you want to import or export Microsoft Excel files (XLS, XLSX) or import OpenOffice Calc documents, download the "Generic package including all optional libraries" (approx. 30MB). If you are in doubt which one to use, download that.

Please see Creating a macOS executable for a short description on how to build a macOS executable using "Automator".

Change in directory layout

Starting with build 125 all additional libraries (e.g. for Excel exports) are expected in the sub-directory ext relative to the directory where sqlworkbench.jar is located. The location of the JDBC drivers is not affected by this.

If you download the archive "with optional libraries", the libraries will automatically be extracted into the ext subdirectory and you can remove the existing libraries from directory where sqlworkbench.jar is located.

Download links

Please note:

Please delete all existing files from the ext sub-directory before extracting the new archive, to make sure that only correct and up-to-date libraries are used.

Older versions can be downloaded from the download archive
