I have read some reviews comparing SQL Navigator with TOAD for Oracle, but they are several years old. I currently program using PL/SQL via sqlplus and I use ToRa as well. However, I now need the ability to print out an ERD for a developer who will be writing a new web-based front end for an Oracle Database application I have written that currently uses a Microsoft Access front end. I also have never gotten the hang of using an Oracle debugger on this system and need something that allows one to set breakpoints and monitor program execution in sessions other than the one the debugger is running in.
A new analyst working for us has used SQL Navigator and we were thinking of purchasing it. But when I looked it up on Quest, I also saw the TOAD product. In looking at reviews from a 2005, people were speculating that Quest was going to be concentrating on TOAD and that was the route to go. But, 4 years later, I am trying to get a feel for where these two products are now and which way, if either, to go.
