Andrew, this is an off-topic reply, motivated by your last sentence, about Oracle screwing up Java language. I am the first one to lay the blame on Oracle Corp. when the situation merits it, but they are innocent here. Java was pretty screwed up at its inception, when it was operated by Scott McNealy's  SUN Microsystems. The screw-up happened on the theoretical level. The whole concept of the OO programming was pretty much messed up, from the beginning:


I have been forced to switch to Python from Perl, as Python is "pure OO". As a result, my scripts are now 3 times as long and there is no Comprehensive Python Archive Network, CPAN for short. I admire Oracle for keeping Perl in use.

For Jeff Smith: a way of making SQL*Developer way better than it is now would be to rewrite it in Perl.
