With the latest release of Oracle SQL Developer, an integrated develpment environment, Oracle says it has added new functionality to simplify the development and management of Oracle Database environments.
Supporting new innovations in Oracle Database 12c, including its multitenant architecture and data redaction, Oracle SQL Developer 4.0 aims to help developers and database administrators increase productivity and performance.
Key enhancements in SQL Developer 4.0
Among the key enhancements in SQL Developer 4.0 is migration tooling which is intended to decrease the cost of migrating systems and applications as less custom coding and database development is required. A new tool to manage SQL Translation Framework is initially available for Microsoft SQL Server and SAP Sybase ASE T-SQL to help developers quickly migrate from third-party platforms to Oracle Database 12c with native SQL code translation.
Oracle SQL Developer 4.0 also adds new functionality, enabling users to manage the multitenant architecture of Oracle Database 12c so developers can easily create, manage and plug databases into the cloud. The new release also enables better reporting with additional charting options to allow developers to deliver rich, easy-to-interpret reports to internal users and partners.
Supporting streamlined development, an enhanced command-line interface for report generation and testing allows developers to build features directly into automated processes and tasks, speeding the development process.
There is also support for the popular GIT technology in SQL Developer 4.0 as well as new code assistance features to identify possible syntax errors before code execution.
Oracle Database customers, Oracle SQL Developer 4.0 is downloadable today from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN).
