I am trying to connect to the database using pl/sql developer.
I have the following queries:
1. Like in Sql Developer and TOAD, i do not see a way in which i can connect to the database directly without using TNSNAMES.ORA. In Sql Developer and TOAD, I directly provide the connection settings like Hostname, Port, Service Name, Username etc. Is there any way I can provide connection details directly in Pl/Sql developer
2. I have multiple homes configured.
C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\client_1\NETWORK\ADMIN: TNSNAMES.ORA file present
C:\oracle\product\11.2.0\client_32\NETWORK\ADMIN: TNSNAMES.ORA file present
Against which in Pl/Sql Developer I see Oracle Homes as
Inspite of having the correct TNSNAMES.ORA file in the above Oracle Homes, I do not see correct entries in Database connection string. Why?
