However, if you are a database developer, there are a few different use-cases of SQL Fiddle intended for you:

  • You want help with a tricky query, and you’d like to post a question to a Q/A site
  • You want to compare and contrast SQL statements in different database back-ends
  • You do not have a particular database platform readily available, but you would like to see what a given query would look like in that environment
