    I am still wondering how I missed this scripts managing feature in sql developer. This is a very good artcile. Now I know how to manage my scripts. Thanks for this.

    Cool feature. But you need need version control to use it. Does / do you anticipate SQL Developer supporting Team Foundation Version Control or Visual Source Safe?

      The Files panel works with or w/o Source Control. And SQL Developer will track local changes to your file, within limits (see the preferences.)

      I don’t see the MSFT based VCS systems being supported in the near future. Most shoppes are moving towards free and/or open source systems. Of course if you’re a MSFT shoppe, then your needs are drastically different. It’s just that we have way more of the former than the latter when it comes to users.

    Great post!

    I’ve recently found the DBmaestro Teamwork extension for Oracle SQL Developer, it gives version control functionality while working directly on database objects – you might want to check it out…

      I’ve seen it, and I like it. But it’s a little overkill for just managing scripts :)
