We had a great webcast today! Approximately 250 of our fellow shipmates joined us on a combined database tools retrospective and a look at where we’re going with SQL Developer, SQL Developer Web (Database Actions via ORDS), and SQLcl!

Here is the recording:

To boldly go, where SQL*Plus never did.

Here are the slides:

The cool ST fonts didn’t come through…I suspect problems in the Jeffries tubes.

You can learn more about SQLcl here.

You can learn more about SQL Developer Web here.

Questions from the Webcast

  1. Can I use Database Actions on my database, not in the Cloud?
    YES! Just download ORDS, and go!
  2. Will we have full design features in the web (data modeler?)
    Not in the near future – for the time being you’ll want to use SQL Developer Data Modeler, unless you’re just wanting to generate data dictionary reports or relational diagrams.
  3. What about ExaCS support for SQL Developer Web?
    SQL Worksheet will be super easy to launch for any Oracle DB, including ExaCS later this Summer in the Oracle Cloud.
  4. Who does #2 work for?
    We all work for Kris.

I'm a Distinguished Product Manager at Oracle. My mission is to help you and your company be more efficient with our database tools.
