SQL Developer FOC
Score 10 out of 10
Overall Satisfaction with Oracle SQL Developer
We have 3 Oracle DBAs in our group. We use SQL Developer every day for running queries, writing script, running dml, ddl and compiling packages and procedures. We also use SQL Developer for administrative functions, such as creating or manipulating user accounts within the database. SQL Developer helps with organization of connections to multiple databases by allowing lots of connections to different databases and allows you to create folders.
- DML and DDL.
- Organization of connections to databases.
- Export and import of external data.
- SQL Developer does most everything TOAD can do.
- Easier way to manipulate packages and procedures.
- Better documentation and location of documentation easier to find online.
- Maybe a little better look and feel to the GUI.
This SQL Developer product stacks up well against TOAD, in that it has most of the functionality that TOAD has and allows better organization for me. It also allows me to make connections within new folders of the same database with different users. The best thing about SQL Developer is it is free.

Would you buy Oracle SQL Developer again?
Well suited for querying the database and doing administrative functions on the database. SQL Developer is also well suited for writing new functions and procedures. It compiles quickly and allows you to see where the error is quickly. Not well suited from my perspective for bouncing the the database or restarting the database. The best thing is it is free.
