The 1st Tip is Free: Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler
This year’s ODTUG KScope conference is less than a month away and I am ready to get to New Orleans and meet up with all my friends and colleagues to talk shop and learn some new things.
So in hopes of getting you to attend, I will share with you one of my productivity tips for using SQL Developer Data Modeler (SDDM).
I love this tool. I use it every single day in my work building data warehouses for my clients.
It’s easy – just right click on the table (or view) you want to check and Voila!
Once you pick “DDL Preview”, then you get the DDL in another window.
With this you can:
1. Check the design to see if it is what you wanted/expected.
2. Copy and paste it to a worksheet in SQL Developer where you can then execute it (if you have the rights!).
One more cool thing is that if you leave the DDL window open, you can now click on any other object in the open diagram and instantly see the DDL for that object.
So there you go – really 3 tips for the price of one!
If you want more, I will be presenting my Top 10 SDDM Tips and Tricks at KScope13 in New Orleans in a few weeks. So go register now!
See you in NOLA!
