Oracle SQL Developer Valuable Features

Galo Balda

* The tight integration with other Oracle products and database features/options. For example, you can open data models, and review AWR and ASH reports. * The ability to reuse your own queries to create report definitions in different layouts and to render the output in HTML/PDF formats. * Export table data and query results in at least 10 different output formats. * The Cart to collect DDL/DML scripts for DB artifacts that need to be deployed together. Great when you want to execute a repeatable process in several schemas and/or databases. View full review »

Oracle is tremendous. I have always said to everybody, without knowing other databases, that Oracle is the best database that can exist in this world. That's for sure. Everybody is considering cost, mainly, so I've heard many stories recently of migrating to PostgreSQL, for example, because it's open-source and many small customers don't need all the super advanced features of Oracle, which costs a lot of money. But on the other side, a great feature of Oracle, I think, is that it allows me to download the database and use it at home. Not a demo database or something restricted but the full version. That's fantastic. View full review »
