PL SQL Developer v220.127.116.110 | 17.3 MB
PL/SQL Developer is an Integrated Development Environment that is specifically targeted at the development of stored program units for Oracle Databases. Over time we have seen more and more business logic and application logic move into the Oracle Server, so that PL/SQL programming has become a significant part of the total development process. PL/SQL Developer focuses on code quality and productivity, ease of use and key advantages during Oracle application development.
· Powerful PL/SQL Editor
With its Syntax Highlighting, SQL and PL/SQL help, Object Descriptions, Code Assistant, Compiler Hints, Refactoring, PL/SQL Beautifier, Code Contents, Code Hierarchy, Code Folding, Hyperlink Navigation, Macro Library and many other sophisticated features, the Unicode compliant editor will even appeal to the most demanding user.
· Integrated Debugger
The integrated debugger offers all features you could wish for: Step In, Step Over, Step Out, Run Until Exception, Breakpoints, View & Set Variables, View Call Stack, and so on.
· PL/SQL Beautifier
The PL/SQL Beautifier allows you to format your SQL and PL/SQL code through a user-defined set of rules. Your code can automatically be beautified when you compile, save, or open a file.
· SQL Window
The SQL Window allows you to enter any SQL statement or multiple statements and view or edit the results in a grid. The result grid supports a Query By Example mode to search specific records in a result set. You can easily recall previously executed SQL statements from a history buffer.
· Command Window
· To develop and execute SQL scripts you can use PL/SQL Developer's Command Window. This window has the same look and feel as SQL*Plus, and additionally has a built-in script editor with corresponding syntax highlighting.
To run reports against your application data or against the Oracle dictionary, you can use PL/SQL Developer's built-in Report functionality. There are a number of standard reports, and you can easily create your own custom reports.
· The Diagram Window allows you to create a graphical representation of a selection of objects. This way you can easily visualize (a part of) the database objects of your application or project and their relations. A diagram can be used for documentation purposes, but can also serve as a workspace.
To organize your work you can use PL/SQL Developer's built-in project concept. A project consists of a collection of source files, database objects, notes, and options. It allows you to work within the scope of a specific set of items, instead of a complete database or schema.
· Regression Testing
For regression testing you can use PL/SQL Developer's built-in Test Manager. You can define and run a Test Set, and quickly determine if all tests run correctly. In case of an error, the Test Manager can launch the Debugger to investigate the cause of the error.
· To-Do Items
· You can use To-Do Items in any SQL or PL/SQL source file to make a quick note that something needs to be done in this source file. You can access this information later from the To-Do List, either at the object level or at the project level.
· Object Browser
This configurable tree-view displays all information that is relevant to PL/SQL development. Use it to get object descriptions, to view object definitions, to create test scripts for the debugger, to enable and disable triggers and constraints, to recompile invalid objects, to query or edit tables or view data, to search for text in object sources, to drag and drop object names into an editor, and so on.
· Performance Optimizing
To optimize the performance to your SQL and PL/SQL code, you can use the PL/SQL Profiler to view timing information of each executed line of PL/SQL code (Oracle8i and later).
· HTML Manuals
Oracle currently supplies on-line manuals in HTML format. You can integrate these manuals into PL/SQL Developer's environment to provide context sensitive help during editing, compilation errors, and runtime errors.
· Non-PL/SQL Objects
You can view, create and modify tables, sequences, synonyms, libraries, directories, jobs, queues, users and roles without using any SQL. Just enter the information in an easy to use form, and PL/SQL Developer will generate the appropriate SQL to create or alter the object.
· Template List
PL/SQL Developer's Template List can be a real time-saver and can help you enforce standardization. Whenever you need to insert some standard SQL or PL/SQL code into an editor, and whenever you need to create a new program file from scratch, just click on the corresponding template.
· Query Builder
The graphical Query Builder makes it easy to create new select statements or modify existing ones. Just drag and drop tables and views, select columns for the field list, where clause and order by clause, join tables based on foreign key constraint definitions, and you're done.
· Compare User Objects
After making changes to table definitions, views, program units, and so on, it may be useful to propagate these changes to another database user, or to find out what exactly the differences are. This may be another development environment, a testing environment, or a production environment.
· Export User Objects
To export the DDL (Data Definition Language) statements of a selection of objects of a user, you can use the Export User Objects tool. This way you can easily recreate the objects for another user, or you can save the file(s) as a backup.
PL/SQL Developer includes several tools to make everyday development easier. You can recompile all invalid objects, search for text in database sources, import and export tables, generate test data, import text files or ODBC data, compare table data, monitor dbms_alert and dbms_pipe events, view session information, and so on.
In most development environments you will not allow all PL/SQL Developer functionality in all databases. For example, in development databases you can grant all PL/SQL Developer functions, in test databases you can grant only the data querying/editing and object viewing functionality, and perhaps you do not want allow PL/SQL Developer to access your production databases at all.
· Plug-In extensions
The functionality of PL/SQL Developer can be extended through Plug-Ins. We supply Plug-Ins on the Add-ons page that you can download without any extra costs. Plug-Ins can be provided by Allround Automations (such as the Version Control Plug-In or the plsqldoc Plug-In) or by other users.
· Multi-threaded IDE
PL/SQL Developer is a multi-threaded IDE. This means that you can continue to work as SQL queries are executing, PL/SQL programs are executing, debug sessions are running, and so on.
· Easy installation
No middle-ware required other than SQL*Net. No database object installation. Just a simple one-button installation procedure and you're ready to use it.
