Adhoc SQL Execution, Data Editing, Stored Procedure Testing
When testing your .NET application you can use the Oracle Data Window to insert and update Oracle data. There's also a testbed for testing stored procedures and an Oracle Query Window for executing any SQL statement you choose.
Browse and modify an Oracle Schema
Use Server Explorer to connect to and browse your Oracle schema and view and modify data. Then launch one of many Oracle designers and wizards to create and alter schema objects.
PL/SQL Editor and Debugger
Leverage all of your favorite Visual Studio debugging features from within PL/SQL code. You can even seamlessly step from your .NET code into your PL/SQL stored procedure code and back out again!
SQL Script Editor and Execution Engine
Edit Oracle SQL*Plus scripts and run them from inside Visual Studio.
SQL Script Lifecycle with Source Control Integration
Generate SQL scripts for Oracle schema objects that your .NET application uses, manage them in an Oracle Database Project, check them into source control, edit the scripts in the Oracle SQL Editor, and execute them with a built in SQL*Plus execution engine.
Oracle Database Project
Store a set of SQL scripts representing your schema in Oracle Database Project and check them into source control. Build a single SQL deployment script that takes dependencies into consideration.
Schema Compare Tools
View differences between two schemas and generate a diff script that can modify a target schema to match the source schema. Compare live database instances and/or an Oracle Database Project containing a set of SQL scripts representing a schema.
SQL Tuning and Application Tuning tools
Use Oracle Performance Analyzer to tune your .NET application's use of Oracle Database via a single click of a button. The database is then monitored under load and recommendations are made. You can also execute and tune ad-hoc SQL statements in Query Window with SQL Tuning Advisor.
Multitenant Container Database Features
Developers using Oracle Database can easily and quickly create, clone, plug or unplug pluggable databases for use during development and testing.
The Oracle SQL and PL/SQL User Guides, Oracle Data Provider for .NET Developer's Guide and Error Messages and Codes are available as online help and searchable. To install the online help, please view the instructions in the release notes.
Entity Designer and Table Adapter Configuration Wizard
These tools provide integration with built in Visual Studio data features and are required if you wish to use these designers and wizards.
