Oracle SQL Developer 1.0 Released

It looks like Oracle’s Project Raptor has graduated and become SQL Developer 1.0.
I really don’t know what took Oracle so long to come up with their own tools. I’m somewhat surprised that they didn’t just purchase Quest Software (given their recent buying spree) and package TOAD with the database.

Regardless, Raptor SQL Developer is quite nice for my needs and a bargain to boot!

BTW: You can import your connections from an older Raptor install if you right-click the Connections tree item, select “Import Connections…”, and select [Raptor-Install]/jdev/system/oracle.onlinedb.11.0.0.36.49/IDEConnections.xml.
