Hello,

I just migrated to a sweet Power book from a dull PC.
I do have most of my tools available for the Mac OS, however I am still looking for a good Oracle client.

In my PC days I used Toad and liked that a lot.

any recommendations ??

Thanks in advance

Congrats on your Powerbook. Nice machine.

I'll move this to the Mac forum where other Mac-heads are more likely to see it.

I'd also recommend checking in with http://www.macosx.com/forums/.

from the documentation:

* The operating system version must be Apple Mac OS X Server 10.3.4

well, I think we are back in the drawing board.

Hi Simon,

What do you use for a database? I use Oracle too but usually with JDBC thin client and JSP or Java front end. But Oracle packs in a lot of other stuff in the client for monitoring the DB, change management, development, etc. Big not always = bad.

In my day job I use whatever the clients use, which is almost always Oracle, DB2, etc but unfortunately I can't use my PowerBook at work. Outside of work, on my PowerBook, I'll use HSQLDB when I do need a database.
