Dumb Question worth 500 points. I updated a PL/SQL Package and I noticed the package icon is green. I'm using ORACLE SQL DEVELOPER.

Is there a better tool than Oracel SQL Developer?

Thanks Green Icon

the only question I see here is:

>>Is there a better tool than Oracel SQL Developer?

Better for what?

Is there an implied question about why its green?

The green just means it hasn't been compiled.  once you compile the package, the green goes away.  (right click on the package and click compile)

SQL Developer has always been good for me and pretty easy to use.  Havn't really had the need to use anything other than it.

pl/sql developer and Toad are both very popular.  I use them both.

I prefer Toad but I've used it for well over a decade so I have a lot of familarity with it.

But,  SQL Developer is free and that's a fantastic selling point.  It's also available for all platforms Oracle runs on.

The other two are Windows only.

You could try Tora,  it's an opensource spin off of Toad. It's not as full featured but not a bad product at all
