SQL*Developer Plug-In /*+ First Contribution */

Posted in: Technical Track

With the help of an anonymous friend, I’ve made available a new SQL*Developer Plug-In. To setup your SQL*Developer 1.1+, proceed as below :

  • Select “Help | Check for Updates…” menu
  • On the “Source” screen, click on the “Add…” button and fill the form as below
    • name : ArKZoYd Update Center
    • location : https://arkzoyd.free.fr/center.xml
  • On the “Updates” screen, select “Partitioning tab and dimension objects 0.2” and proceed
  • Click on “End” Button and restart SQL*Developer

Note :
For some obscure reasons, I’m working on, you may need to restart SQL*Developer a second time. I’m working on it and may provide a fix once I found how the solve this issue.

Graphic 1 – Select “Display Image” to show the Plug-In

The Plug-In adds 2 features to SQL*Developer :

  • A dimension folder below the Materialized view folder
  • A new tab named “Additional Partitioning” to the “Table” Editor

I wish I can continue to develop the Plug-In. Feel free to comment this post with your ideas, sample code and feedbacks

Hello Gregory,

is there any chance to change existing templates especially for EXPLAIN PLAN
to add more functionality like possibility to show additional information in
screen tips – structure of indexes, indexes for tables etc.
