Using DBMS_DEBUG in SQL Developer

Do you need to debug PL/SQL units in SQL Developer? You can’t get it to work because someone refuses to open TCP ports between your database and your client? No problem. You can still configure the good old DBMS_DEBUG in your SQL Developer. I know it is deprecated since Oracle Database 12c. […]

Simplify the Use of PL/Scope in SQL Developer

In this post I showed how to do some code analysis with PL/Scope and how the views and packages of the plscope-utils might simplify this task. However, these views and packages are based on dba_* views and it is sometimes not that easy to get such privileges for an additional user in a non-personal database instance. […]

Bitemp Remodeler v0.1.0 Released

I’ve been working on a flexible table API generator for Oracle Databases since several months. A TAPI generator doesn’t sound like a real innovation. But this one contains some features you probably have not seen before in TAPI generator and hopefully will like it as much as I do. In this post I will not […]

How to Integrate Your PL/SQL Generators in SQL Developer

About three weeks ago Steven Feuerstein tweeted in his tip #501 a link to a generator for the WHEN clause in DML triggers on Oracle Live SQL. Back than I refactored the generator for oddgen – the Oracle community’s dictionary-driven code generator – and published the result on Oracle Live SQL as well. Some […]

PL/SQL Cop Meets oddgen

Until August 2015 it never occurred to me that one could use non-PL/SQL code within conditional compilation blocks. Back than we discussed various template engine options as foundation for oddgen – the Oracle community’s dictionary-driven code generator. oddgen supports nowadays the in-database template engines FTLDB and tePLSQL. Both tools may access templates stored in PL/SQL packages using a selection […]

Introducing PL/SQL Unwrapper for SQL Developer

I’m using from time to time the free service Unwrap it! or Niels Teusink’s Python script unwrap.py to unwrap PL/SQL code. Recently I’m confronted more with wrapped code since a customer is about to migrate to a new banking platform which is using wrapped PL/SQL code extensively. While investigating migration errors we experienced that unwrapping […]

Today I could not install any SQL Developer extension on my Mac OS X machine. I did not get an error message during the installation. After a restart of SQL Developer the extension simply was missing. When I tried to re-install it – selecting “Check for updates…” in the “Help” menu – I’ve got the […]
