Install DBeaver on Ubuntu 22.04

This article is going to teach you how to Install DBeaver on Ubuntu 22.04. DBeaver is a database administration and SQL client software program. It uses the JDBC application programming interface (API) to interact with databases using a JDBC driver for relational databases. It employs proprietary database drivers for other databases e.g. NoSQL. It has a built-in editor with code completion and syntax highlighting. It has a plug-in architecture (based on the Eclipse plugins design) that lets users change a lot of the application’s behavior to add database-specific functionality or database-independent capabilities.

The community edition (CE) of DBeaver is a free and open source project that uses the Apache License. A commercial license is needed for the Premium edition. DBeaver can be used to create and manage databases in a variety of database management systems (DBMSs). DBeaver supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, SQLite, Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, Sybase, Microsoft Access, Teradata, Firebird, Derby, and other common DBMSs.
