Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the Oracle Tool for Application Developers (or TOAD, for short), code changes that once took hours can be done in minutes. This graphical user interface for the Oracle database saves you time by letting you build, test, debug, and format your code within an interactive development environment. Not surprisingly, it has an extremely dedicated core user group.

Like the first edition, this revised pocket reference provides you with quick reference to all of TOAD's crucial shortcut keys and productivity tips. After an introduction to TOAD and its main program features, the book details how to customize TOAD and change its options to suit your specific work environment. You'll learn just how easy it is to graphically browse and change database characteristics

Unlike the original book, however, this second edition also addresses Toad V8.0 and V8.5 and the cutting-edge changes introduced by these powerful current versions. Among the updates addressed:

The new SQL editor

Improvements in usability

CodeXpert, a robust code analysis and advisor

Script Debugger, the only tool available that provides real-time debugging of SQL*Plus scripts

Written by Patrick McGrath and Bert Scalzo, TOAD's lead architect, TOAD Pocket Reference for Oracle, 2nd Edition is designed specifically to make database and application development faster and easier. What's more, this handy guide is pocket-sized so you can carry it anywhere. So, if you're a database administrator or developer looking to simplify day-to-day administration tasks, this is the one book to have by your side.

Synopsis:

Updated for the latest versions of TOAD, V8.0 and V8.5

Synopsis:

Toad is an enormously popular interactive environment tool for Oracle development and administration. It allows developers to build, test, debug, and format their code via an easy-to-use graphical user interface, available in both freeware and commercial versions. Toad makes developers far more productive; using Toad, you'll find that program changes that once took hours can now be completed in minutes. Toad allows developers to browse their database tables, procedures, and object types; use code templates; and show errors. It also simplifies database administration by providing a way for DBAs to graphically browse and change database characteristics.

Updated for Toad Versions 8.0 and 8.5, this pocket book is packed with quick-reference material: Toad feature and menu summaries, shortcut keys, suggested changes to Toad defaults, productivity tips and tricks, and more. The book includes concise discussions of all the basic Toad components: the SQL Editor, Procedure Editor, SQL Modeler, Schema Browser, Project Manager, and Debugger. The second edition includes coverage of new SQL Editor features, improvements in usability, and new tools such as CodeXpert (a robust code analyzer and advisor) and Script Debugger (the only tool available that provides real-time debugging of SQL*Plus scripts). It also provides helpful hints on using Toad to perform database administration and SQL tuning and optimization.

Whether you're a new or experienced Toad user, you'll find this quick reference an indispensable companion to the product and its online help files.
