    Hello,
    Cannot agree more with the new name, “Introducing Oracle REST Data Services”.

    Not sure what is new in 2.0.6, but I hope that the length of Blob file ( Media Resources ) will be included in the HTML header.

    Regards,

      2.0.6 is JUST bug fixes. The next release will have TONS of cool new features though :)

      For your question regarding the HTML header, I would post that over in the forums.

    Any plans to support Postgresql Database Connectivity in upcoming releases ?

      Are you looking to migrate from Postgresql?

        Sometimes yes.
        For the most part , connectivity .

        We can connect to MS SQL Server , mysql from SQL developer using third party driver ( aka jar files) . But for postgres it doesn’t work.

        I was wondering , if in the future releases postgres connectivity is supported ?

        Probably not until the market dictates migration support from that platform to Oracle Database. If you need help there, let me know, we can probably get something going.

    There’s no impact to the Data Miner functionality when this upgrade is applied, is there ?

      Actually there is – the Data Miner team also patched their extension. See the details here.

        After installing the new SQL Developer release, launching Data Miner brought up a dialog indicating the data miner repository had to be upgraded ? If I do the upgrade, will the older release of Data Miner still be operational with the upgraded repository ?

        Not sure. I would ask the Data Miner folks. Have you tried their Forums on OTN?

      • Mark Simms

        And the answer is:
        The Data Miner repository is SQL Developer/Data Miner Client version specific. If you upgrade SQL Developer and upgrade the Data Miner repository, older versions of the Data Miner client will not work on the upgraded repository.

    Hi Jeff I noticed some behaviour when opening connections that was not present in previous incarnations. If I have snippets and SQL history views open and one of those panes has the focus, if I then right-click a connection and select “open SQL Worksheet” the tab is opened in the pane which had focus i.e. I started in snippets and the pain opened to the right of snippets. Previously this opened in the main central pane. Is this correct? From a UI perspective I like the expectation that any new SQL worksheets will always appear in the central pane.

    Another oddity is the SQL History pane contains timestamps with dates in the future. 10-June02015

    Another nice to have is the ability to click edit snippet and it opens up the snippet you want to edit not a complete list of all snippets i.e. snippet manager.

    It is a great product though hence I only usually feedback on products I actually want/like to use.

    How can I prevent PL/SQL code from echoing into the script output window ?
    Set Serveroutput Off kills the query results, but not the code.

      I think that’s a bug – the dbms_output should ONLY be going to the dbms_output panel. The developer was looking at this as of 2 weeks ago…

    Yep – tried to turn off: AUTOTRACE, ECHO, TERMOUT

    Nothing worked….code still appeared.

    Any workarounds ?

      Nope, but the developer confirmed it’s a bug, so it should be addressed in a future release.
