Best replacement for ISQLPLUS functionality
Posted on 2008-10-29
Our customer is currently using ISQLPLUS as a workaround in order to perform SQL functionality through a web interface. We've upgraded the majority of their databases to 10g and they've been using the 9i as a workaround due to the stability problems in the 10g version.
At the end of this year the support ends for 9i so the question is whether we need to extend support for that so they can continue to use the ISQLPLUS tool that came with 9i or if we should try to migrate them to something like APEX.
The question is what is more time/cost effective and whether APEX can duplcate the minimal interface that isqlplus provides, which is all the customer is looking for. In fact assuming it does that and a lot more is there a way to lock it down so that the access is more like what isqlplus provides.
