Sql Developer can generate DDL for just about anything. For everything else, there's always dbms_metadata.get_ddl(). Coming from Toad, I was a little resistant to Sql Developer as well but I have grown to love it. Take a little more time and play around with it. If you have any specific questions, let me know or post them on this board.

I've been trying to wean myself away from my March 2002 version of Toad (never expires) by using Oracle Sql*Developer. I really don't have an honest opinion of it yet.  

Also been trying to use Grid instead of 9i Oem. Still going backward!  

I agree with you about one thing. The tools are all weak. It seems something gets fully mature and working well and somebody decides to "re-engineer it". And the new version sucks.  

Life is a challenge.

Well, I visited the SourceForge site of my long time fav Oracle tool TOra. The end of life release has been posted. Why is it my favorite tools die ugly deaths...

Does anyone have a suggestion for replacing TOra in my desktop toolkit? What's your fav tool. I've tried sql developer and Tom Kyte may like it but ICK! is all I can say. I'm a DBA not a Developer. TOra could snoop around and build code.

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
