Short and sweet.

I realized I didn’t have a good video demonstration of the debugger, so I decided to fix that. If you have 8 minutes to spare, take a look at how this might be more useful to you than using DBMS_OUTPUT or inserting other artificial code.

Here are some slides if you prefer…

    Hi Jim, nice video.

    Could you please explain which prerrequisites are needed in order to enable debug in Oracle database from SQL Developer. I mean do I need to compile any package in the database or enable some specific port?
    Your video shows that the debugger is running DBMS_DEBUG_JDWP.CONNECT_TCP(…) procedure. Is this a built in package or do I need to manually compile it?

    Thank you
