Hi guys,

Currently the tool supported for development by the company I work for is PL/SQL Developer. It's my first time using it. However, I can't help but feel the application feels a little dated and could be a lot more user friendly. Without grinding through demos on the website, I thought I'd ask for alternative recommendations here - the responses on this forum are usually pretty good.

I hope I've posted in the appropriate forum - afterall I'm trying to improve my DB productivity while developing in Java ;)

I find Oracle's SQL Developer to be the best choice. What is it you're looking for that you feel is missing... I prefer it over both of the commercial choices my company also uses (Quest's SQL Navigator and Embarcadaro's Rapid SQL).

Little things like tabbed screens when you have many result sets open, also the need to run "edit data" query or add rowid to your query when you later decide to commit an update. I can't help but feel there must be a better alternative. Don't get me wrong is does the job, I'm just looking for a few features which may speed up every day tasks.

I just realized... we are referencing two different products... you are referring to: http://www.allroundautomations.nl/plsqldev.html

I am referring to this one (try it):
