SQL Developer

Oracle SQL Developer is well-suited for all companies that are using Oracle SQL Databases. First and foremost, it is absolutely free, and there are many free in-depth tutorials and documentation online to answer all of your questions. No matter the amount of experience, I am sure all database administrators will be able to work much more productively with their organization's databases through this IDE.

It's a great tool when building the software, the ability to add SQL and No-SQL databases. Very convenient to write the queries and generate the filtered data we require. Gives the ability to export, import databases of various formats and generate reports from them.It might not be suitable if you want the data to be seen in a visualized manner

Pros

SQL Developer

  • Export SQL results to a spreadsheet. After a query is run, you are able to export the results to a spreadsheet
  • Easily preview data columns on an Oracle table or view and the metadata on those columns.
  • SQL Editor is color-coded so that you can tell easily what are keywords.
  • You can set up SQL code templates to be able to use shortcut keys to format your SQL query easily in a readable format that you prefer.

Sequel Pro

  • Table filters are simple and easy to use
  • I love the ability to install plugins: Export tables to Laravel migrations is one of our most used plugins
  • Super easy to connect to local Docker containers, Vagrant and remote DBs through SSH

Cons

SQL Developer

  • Setup can be challenging if your schemas aren't well formed or managed. Also, the ability to model/develop extensions for an existing database solution will depend on how robust the DBA provisioned roles and designed the respective schemas.
  • Detailed analysis of models can be clunky for complex relational models.

Sequel Pro

  • It crashes CONSTANTLY. If you have more than one connection tab open and close one of them, it crashes. If you just have it open in the background, it randomly crashes. If you're using it, it randomly crashes. When you try to send a crash report, the CRASH REPORTER CRASHES.
  • Can be a bit slow.
  • No way that I'm aware of to query multiple databases in the same query.

It's open-source and very convenient to work with. I can easily import any database I want using a data dump and runt the queries on them to derive the data insights on the data. I might want to use Excel to visualize that, that might be one of the disadvantages.

Alternatives Considered

SQL Developer

Toad and SQL developer are often compared and we considered both at the beginning. Arguably, Toad outperforms SQL developer in terms of many functionalities. The biggest reason we encouraged our engineers to use SQL developer was cost. Although it is not enriched like Toad, it is still a very well functioning and supported product.

Sequel Pro

Sequel Pro's major competitor is Oracle's MySQL Workbench, a multi-platform MySQL server management software. While MySQL Workbench is more robust and feature complete, it doesn't beat Sequel Pro in terms of simplicity while providing all the power a pro would need.

Return on Investment

SQL Developer

  • SQL Developer is a free tool that comes with the licenses of Oracle Database, so it's quite inappropriate to talk about ROI of this software itself.
  • SQL Developer is not a "you get what you pay for" product. Using it can cut out an entire line from your budget, so there is no comparison in that regard. We now only buy a few licenses for other similar tools and only when the user can prove SQL Developer doesn't meet the need.
  • In some cases, new programmers come in that are not familiar with SQL Developer. People tend to like what is familiar, so there is some initial time spent learning the tool. But that is balanced out because it really is pretty intuitive.

Sequel Pro

  • The user interface is great. Since all of our computers are macOS based, we can all use it and share knowledge with our colleagues
  • It enables me to make things in such a faster way that it enables us to spend our time with coding and providing more solutions to our clients
  • The workflow is much improved with the import and export feature, so we don't waste time with that kind of work.
