  • So, what other great Oracle client tools are there out there?

    Not that I don't want to use TOAD or TORa, but I have yet to find any truly great tool for simply running SQL queries and getting decent and useful error messages. I find that extremely a) annoying and b) surprising.
    • One of my favorites is SQLTools []. It can run SQL queries, bring up table defs, shows results in a separate grid, lets you export the results as text, CSV or straight to Excel, lets you browse and pull source for different schema objects, it slices, dices, makes hundreds of julienne fries. :) Mind you, I'm still looking for the ultimate Oracle utility, but SQLTools comes pretty close.

      • Interesting, but it isn't immediately clear to me that this works on platforms other than Windows. That's one of the main reasons I liked TORa - I could run it on my Solaris box.

        In any case, I doubt TORa is going away any time soon. It will probably be forked in the worst case scenario. Frankly, I'm surprised no one has written something in Java. Maybe I should check for an Eclipse plugin. ;)
