Since \d and \dj are meta-commands specific to the vsql CLI, I don't think it's possible to execute them via dBeaver.

You can make your own queries that returns the same results as the meta-commands.

For instance, for \d you can use this query:

Code: Select all

select table_schema "Schema", table_name "Name", 'table' "Kind", tables.owner_name "Owner", comment "Comment"
from tables
left join comments
on comments.object_id = tables.table_id
order by 1, 2;
