In computing, Oracle SQL Developer (internally often: "sqldeveloper") is an Integrated development environment (IDE) for working with SQL in Oracle databases. Oracle Corporation provides this product free; it uses the Java Development Kit.
Oracle SQL Developer supports Oracle products and a variety of third-party plugins which users may deploy to connect to non-Oracle databases. Oracle SQL Developer works with IBM DB2, Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Sybase Adaptive Server, and Teradata databases.
Oracle SQL Developer supports automatic tabs, code insight, bracket matching and syntax coloring for PL/SQL.
Oracle SQL Developer product components include:
- OWA (Oracle Web Agent or MOD_PLSQL), is an extension module for the Apache web server, and helps in setting up dynamic web-pages from PL/SQL within Oracle SQL Developer.
In addition to the extensions provided by Oracle, third parties have written extensions to add new features to SQL Developer and to integrate with other products:
- New features
- GeoRaptor, Geospatial data viewer
- Insider, Collect statistics for a single Oracle instance and display in real time
- Schema Visualizer allows you to create fully featured Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERD)
- Integration with other Oracle products
- SQL Developer Data Modeler operates with and models metadata. Prior to SQL Developer version 3, it constituted a separate (but integrated) free counterpart of SQL Developer. As of SQL Developer version 3 modeling became an integrated part of the overall tool. "Data Modeler" can produce (among other outputs) .dmd files.
- Integration with other commercial products
- Red Gate - Deployment Suite for Oracle (Compares schemas and data; deploys all changes.)
- JDBCWizard (produces Java Web Service code to run your existing PL/SQL and SQL statements)
- Hotsos Profiler
- Digger (trace analyzer)
- SVCO Extension (integrated version-control for Oracle database server schema objects)
