Download SQLcl 21.4

First things first, SQLcl DOES NOT use log4j – so there are no security vulnerabilities in THIS or ANY version of SQLcl.

This version of SQLcl offers a variety of bug fixes and one new major feature: Data Pump command support.

Brian and I take you on a quick overview of Data Pump in SQLcl.

Want a shorter, sweeter version w/o Brian and I going on and on with PPT?

Here’s a 5 minute version from the indomitable Oracle-Base.

Tim does more than videos, he also has a little site called Oracle-Base you may have heard of before. He has a very nice series of articles on SQLcl, and so of course he also covers Data Pump in more detail there as well.

We hate typing, so you can shorten ‘datapump’ to ‘dp.’ And all of the command parameters have short name options as well.

Example: dp export -s HRREST,HR2 -f some_of_the_hrs3.dmp -lf hrs4.log -j HRREST_HR2_EXPORT_JOB_4

Make it as simple as possible

To export your current schema, simply do:

SQL> dp export

There is so much more to talk about for this feature, but we will cover those in 2022 🙂

Wait, one last trick

I like this feature so much, I need to show it now.

Don’t run anything, just generate the code for me please.

Just use the -noexec or -ne parameter.

Wait, one final last trick

Don’t forget you can monitor and check up on your Data Pump jobs in SQL Developer Web – plus download those dmp files!

Sorry, just one more thing
