Using Reports to Print CLOBs

A co-worker asked me for some advice on building a report to view some CLOBs. CLOBs are fun. They let you store an unlimited (basically) amount of text. They’re not as flexible as VARCHAR2s, but they do come in handy. Viewing them in a report can get interesting though. The question came down to seeing […]

SQL Developer 4.0 and the Command Line Interface (CLI)

SQL Developer has had a command-line interface of sorts. The primary use cases were for formatting files and running unit tests.
