  2. Navicat link is broken[ Go to top ]

    Do you have to login on OTN first in order to use this link?

    You only need to be logged into OTN to download Oracle products. For example you can download SQL Developer and/or JDeveloper which seem to do the same thing as the above tools and are both provided free. http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/sql_developer/index.html and http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/jdev

    Yes, but SQL Developer is clunky. I was hoping that Navicat was lighter and more responsive. Did Oracle just rename SQL Developer to Navicat? And please provide the right link for Navicat.

  8. Navicat's user[ Go to top ]

    I am currently using Navicat MySQL and PGSQL and those products saves me lots of the time. It's worth to try their Oracle version... waiting for their full version releases...
  9. I just tried out Navicat Oracle database tool and have some comments. pros: - very intuitive user interface - light and responsive - free of charge - the website said that its full version will include lots of more features such as Import/Export, Tasks scheduling, Visual Database Designer and probably PL/SQL Debugger cons: - doesn't support Linux - doesn't support Oracle 8i Overall, it's the best Oracle GUI tool I ever tried. I strongly suggest it to everyone who want to work more efficient.
  10. Aqua Data Studio[ Go to top ]

    I've been using Aqua Data Studio with Oracle for a while. It's the nicest GUI environment for database queries I've used, much more pleasant to me than SQL-Developer or TOAD. It's written in Java, so can run on any platform. And it includes specific support for Oracle 8i upwards, SQL-Server 7 upwards, various Sybase flavors, DB2, Informix, MySQL and PostgreSQL, as well as Generic JDBC and ODBC. One of the things I really like about ADS is the consistent and reliable keyboard and focus behavior. I'm too lazy to navigate around applications using the mouse all the time, and ADS is surprisingly good with the keyboard. Another example of a nice feature that I really like is its ability to retrieve old queries. You can search one date ranges and query text, and pretty easily track down prior queries. I've used this several times to recover queries I'd written weeks previously. And I average a couple dozen ad-hoc queries per day. I'm using Linux, so I guess I can't try Navicat. :-( John Hurst Wellington, New Zealand
  11. Re: Aqua Data Studio[ Go to top ]

    I'm a professional database developer and have lots of tables to manage in my Oracle database. What I'm looking for is a software which can speed up my daily tasks. I tried Aqua and realized it's using JDBC to connect to Oracle or other DBMS. Its performance is slow compared to other database tools that I've used. And I believe this is due to the fact that it's written in Java. Furthermore, I spend 90% of my time on a Mac and Aqua is not working as a native Mac OS X application due to its Java based nature. Last but not least, there are many good and FREE Oracle database tools why I've to pay $399 for a single license that can't speed up my work?
  12. Aqua Data Studio on Macs[ Go to top ]

    I'm not a Mac guy. But I have a colleague who is a long-time Mac guy and he uses several Java/Swing apps regularly: IDEA, oXygen XML, SmartSVN. I was under the impression that they worked pretty well on the Mac. Personally I used SQL-Developer for a couple of years and still recommend it to casual SQL users because it's free. But it's also a little quirky. For myself I found Aqua sufficiently more pleasant and more productive to be worth the money. I am a bit perverse I guess: I do buy tools. (I also spend a lot of my time in SQL-Plus, which could also be considered perverse.) John Hurst Wellington, New Zealand

    How this tool stack against the Acqau data studio (http://www.aquafold.com/). I can already see that Navicat doesn't support version 8i of Oracle which is still supported by Acqua data studio. Besides this I never found the price of standard and enterprise editions of Navicat any where on their website.
