SQL Developer version 4.2 Early Adopter 2 Now Available

Tell Others About This Story:

Tons of bugs fixes based on your feedback, especially with the formatter.

A few more changes with the formatter:

  • we added more preferences for more flexibility
  • we let you submit code to ‘shape’ the formatting preferences automatically
  • we exposed the brains of the formatter so you can do pretty much whatever you want

An example of the formatter ‘by example’

Type code, as the formatter sees 'stuff' it changes the formatting options - these are highlighted in Green so you can see what's changed.

I’ll talk about the formatting ‘gut’ being exposed in a later post.

But we did a bit more than the formatter stuff.

The Real Time SQL Monitor has been enhanced to show you more stuff – everything you’d expect to see like you see it in Enterprise Manager.

Pruning, projection, and all that jazz - thanks to @SQLMaria for keeping us honest :)

How about re-setting passwords while not connected, and WITHOUT requiring a Thick Client?

THICK CLIENT = ORACLE_HOME/Oracle Client.

SQL Developer 4.2 ships with a 12.2 JDBC driver. And the JDBC Driver supports password resets while not connected now. Might be the #1 reason to upgrade to v4.2 when we go live for your production and ‘real’ work environments.

No connection, no Oracle client - no problem.

One Last Thing – RESTful Services Development Just Got a Lot Easier

No need to login with your ORDS user via REST to publish a RESTful service. You can do that directly from the database/connection tree now.

The REST (http/s) interface is still available if a database connection isn't handy.

There’s a lot more to talk about – but enjoy the rest of 2016. Please go download, give it a spin, and share your feedback on the Forums!
