Martin KlierSenior Database Consultant at Performing Databases
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It works like a one-stop shop for all of our application development requirements."
"I like it because it's very similar in output to SQL *Plus, and it has many convenience features that make it easier to read the data and use the basic reporting features it provides."
"It's easy to deploy, I can copy it onto the system and run it without having to install it and this makes it a very good solution for quick use."
"I would like to see it extend native support for functional languages like Scala."
"I think it would be great to have an overview over the sessions it opens so that we could easily see and control which connections to the database we want to keep open, which ones are hanging; and it would be great to make them independent from each other."
"Scalability has room for improvement. Often if you have to do a heavy load of queries or are getting large result sets you have to be careful not to overload the Java virtual machine that's running."
"It has the advantage that it's free. The next best competitor would cost several thousand dollars."
