Chapter 5 MySQL Shell Consoles

MySQL Shell's GUI Console provides the full power of the MySQL Shell inside a notebook-interface-styled editor. Multi-line command editing, interactive auto-completion, and plugins are also included in its functionality.

The MySQL Shell Consoles tab contains of any number of independent GUI console sessions, each incrementally named Session 1, Session 2, and so on. The tab encapsulates and supports code written in JavaScript, Python, and SQL within a session. Any executed code is processed as one of these languages, based on the language that is currently active.
