SQL Developer, SQL Developer Data Modeler, SQLcl, and REST Data Services versions 19.2 are now available!
Lots and lots of blog posts coming up soon, but a few things of note:
- Oracle Java 11 is now supported. You can run 12 as well, but we tested and certified 11. 8 is also still supported, and we ship Java 8 JDK with the embedded Windows 64 distribution.
- ORDS is no longer included with SQL Developer. You can still use the Installer/Run wizards for ORDS, but you’ll need to download the ZIP from OTN first.
- ORDS and the DB API has been enhanced, most notably we have end points for running Data Pump Imports and creating new databases with the Database Creation Assistant.
- Data Modeler now supports (robustly!) versioning your designs with Git.
- SQLcl now allows you to enable SQL Injection warnings when creating/compiling PL/SQL.
- SQLcl now includes support for Liquibase – and we’ll create your changelogs for you!
- Lots and lots of bug fixes.
One bug fix I’m enjoying is I can browse trace files with no problem now:
Oracle Java JDK 11/12
It works, however; you’ll get a warning message if you’re running version 12 or higher of the JDK. for official support, we require 8 or 11. If you’re wondering about versions 13 and 14…then so am I. We’ll probably start shipping 11 or 12 with Windows later this year. Probably.
