IBM Eclipse Database tool for MySQL?

Did you read this correctly?   Yes, IBM has released some tools that support database development for MySQL.  Don't  worry  my blue blooded buddie DB2 and IDS are also supported.   Check it out:

It has a very long name:

Eclipse Based Foundation Toolkit for Heterogenous Database Applications

but it is basically provides a plug-in for:
  • Connecting to MySQL, DB2's and IDS
  • Browse, Create, Alter and Drop database objects (DDL)
  • Query editing and running for standard ANSI SQL with content assist
  • An IDE for SQL stored procedure (aka routine) development
The nice thing about this tool is that is uses the Eclipse update infrastructure to install into your existing Eclipse 3.4.1 environment.
