SQL Developer’s Interface for GIT: Interacting with a GitHub Repository Part 2

In this post I’m going to show to synchronize the remote and local repositories after an existing file in local gets modified. What I’ll do is modify the sp_test_git.pls file in our local repository and then push those changes to the remote repository (GitHub).

First, I proceed to open the sp_test_git.pls file using SQL Developer, add another dbms_output line to it and save it. The moment I save the file, the Pending Changes (more...)

Monitoring Oracle Golden Gate from SQL Developer

Last week I was at Collaborate 14 speaking in two sessions; one of the sessions I had done a couple of times before.  The other session was about the different ways of monitoring Oracle GoldenGate (If you are curious about the presentation it can be found here).  While at the conference I ran the idea of monitoring GoldenGate from SQL Developer by a few peers and there seems to be interest.  (more...)

SQL Developer’s Interface for GIT: Interacting with a GitHub Repository Part 1

SQL Developer’s Interface for GIT: Cloning a GitHub Repository

SQL Developer 4 provides an interface that allows us to interact with Git repositories. In this post, I’m going to show how to clone a GitHub (A web based hosting service for software development projects that uses the Git revision control system) repository.

First you need to sign up for a GitHub account. You can skip this step if you already have one.

Your account will give you access to public repositories that could be cloned (more...)

Open and Migrate Microsoft Access in Oracle SQL Developer 4

For many people getting start with databases revolve around using Microsoft Access (MS Access). MS Access is an entry level “database” (if you can call it a database) that Microsoft has been putting out for years. Often people want to move older MS Access “databases” into enterprise databases as they become reliant on the information stored in them. Oracle has recognized this and has enabled Oracle SQL Developer to interact with MS Access and allow (more...)

Issues with using latest release of ODM

The title of this blog post makes it sound more dramatic than it actually is.

The reason for this blog post is down to me receiving a recent comment on the blog, plus having received numerous emails and a recent OTN Discussion Forum topic for Oracle Data Mining.

The main thing that they have in common is that if I use the latest version of Oracle Data Mining (ODM) it tells me that I need (more...)

Installing Java, Oracle 11g R2 Express Edition and SQL Developer on Ubuntu 64-bit

A while ago I tried to install Oracle 11g R2 Express Edition on a 64-bit Ubuntu machine. This proved to be not as easy as you would expect. There are many blogs and articles about this subject and I tried a number of them. Unfortunately neither of the instructions seemed to work completely on my machine. With the combined information from the authors, I finally got it to work and I’ll gladly share my recipe (more...)

SQL Developer’s PL/SQL Debugger and Oracle 12c

The PL/SQL Debugger works pretty much out of the box when used with a previous Oracle version. These are the things we needed in place before we could start debugging PL/SQL:

  1. A grant of the DEBUG CONNECT SESSION privilege.
  2. EXECUTE privilege on DBMS_DEBUG_JDWP.
  3. EXECUTE privilege on the stored procedure you want to debug.
  4. Make sure the stored procedure is “Compiled for Debug”.

Jeff Smith talks about it in this post.

But what happens when you (more...)
