Get your copy of DBMonster

A fresh copy of DBMonster can be downloaded from the project's download page at You can found there tested, working releases ready to run.
If you like living on the edge you may try checkout the latest version from the CVS repository. Check this page to find out how. Be warned that CVS HEAD revision may not work or even compile (but it usually does :-).


DBMonster is distributed with all libraries it needs. The only software you have to have are:

  • JRE or J2SDK, version 1.4.0 or higher,
  • JDBC driver for your database.

Building from sources

DBMonster uses Maven as a build system. To build DBMonster from sources:

  1. Download and install the latest Maven distribution.
  2. Grab DBMonster module from CVS.
  3. cd to dbmonster's root directory
  4. type: maven dist
  5. That's it!

You may encounter problems when building in non GUI environment (i.e. shell under Linux). If some tests fail try this (you must have at least J2SDK 1.4.0 to build DBMonster):

maven -Djava.awt.headless=true <GOAL>
