I was just going through the messages in the lift web maillist and one of the posts was about the H2 dabase and how to view and edit the tables. I always wanted to have a look in there, but never bothered enough to figure it out. Thanks to Diego Medina for serving it on a plate!

Find where you h2 jar file is and then run the following command:

java -cp /path/to/h2/lib/h2-1.3.160.jar org.h2.tools.Server

This should start the server and it open up the browser for you:

Sellect generic h2 server from the first drop down then:


Put the name without the ending ".h2.db" and then connect to your database. You should be able to view and edit your data. Pretty easy and very usefull!
