We have to rename Oracle SQL Developer – there’s not enough ‘Oracle’ in the name! So, I’d like to crowdsource some ideas.

Here’s a few to get you started:

  • Oracle SQL Developer for Oracle
  • Oracle SQL Developer Unbreakable
  • Oracle We Can’t Believe It’s Not Chargeable SQL Developer

Yes, it’s April Fool’s Day, again.

Yes, I’m out of blog ideas.

Yes, I’m probably in trouble.

  1. Raptor seems like a good name for the product !

    It’s the 2nd April now so I’m taking this seriously (maybe)

  2. I would like to see you blog about how to set the SQL Developer code formatter to upper-case keywords and lower-case identifiers πŸ˜‰

    • That option supports InitCap too, have a go.

      BTW, how did we get on to the formatting subject? This was SUPPOSED to be a fun post.

    • Just go to Preferences, Code Editor, Completion Insight, Change Case As You Type > ‘Upper Keywords’

      SELECT * FROM scott.emp;

      Then just type out your identifiers in lower case and all will be right with the world.

    • That’s right, but what if I want to format existing programs that have upper or mixed case identifiers? Can I please get one more option in that combo box: ‘Upper keywords, lower identifiers’? Please! πŸ™‚
