I can't go to 1.5+ of sql developer, I have critical needs to connect down hill to 8.1 instances. I'm still running sqldeveloper. For that very same reason I only have the 9.2 client installed on my laptop. Oracle in their infinite wisdom... on never mind you all know that already.

How long since you have looked at SQL Developer?

It's actually pretty good for a GUI tool.

I must add the caveat that I used GUI db tools mainly for browsing schemas and data.

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.
