Maybe you have already read somewhere else that Oracle SQL Developer 1.2 has been released. Maybe you have also read in one of my previous postings that PL/SQL Developer is my favorite development IDE.
But why could SQL Developer still be interesting if you are an Oracle APEX developer and are using another IDE?
Because the new release 1.2 has some interesting features, especially for Oracle APEX developers.
- Direct Export/Import of an Oracle APEX application has been integrated into the new release. It also offers several reports to browse the Oracle APEX Dictionary views. See Kris Rice blog postings New Patch with APEX features and More APEX/SQL Developer for more details.
- The Oracle Migration Workbench has been integrated into SQL Developer. You can read more about it at Donal Daly’s blog in his Oracle Database Migration has reached the next level posting.
Give it a try and check it out.
