Oracle SQL Developer installation


I'm downloading SQL Developer form this site;
I have downloaded the 64 bit version, sqldeveloper-, because I want the jre within SQL Developer.
The problem i am having is that I can't extract the files within the zip.  It is telling me that the zip is empty.
And it is not empty.
What might be the problem?

Right click on a connection in the connections window (on the left) and choose 'Find DB Object'. This will open a new pane on the left where you can type something and then press 'Go'.

Sounds like the download is corrupt.

Delete the zip file you have and download it again.

s;ogjtwv, you are correct, actually, I am at work and there must be a cap set for downloads.  I'll have to get it some other method.  I got another question for you.  I had SQL Developer installed, then I had to swap computers, hence the re-installed, but when i did use it, here my question;

On the left side pane, is there a way to search for a table, given that I have the table name.  I do not want a "filter," but I would like a search/find function.

Sorry but I don't use any GUI for database things.

On the left hand side, SQL Developer has navigation to various objects where in you can do a right-click on any of the objects and select Filter, if you know the object name then select the Filter and use the criteria as =, there are options in the Filter Criteria(LIKE,NOTLIKE,=,<>),. you have to use either of them to get to a single object, there is no default search mechanism in SQL Developer, because the Search/Find is reserved for the use of Editor Pane(Which you would use to type queries)

slightwv, I understand.  I got the sqldeveloper- installed.  Points are coming shortly to both.

Thanks, I do not want to use the filter.  The other search is better.  slightwv I will be submitting another questions having to do with the installation.
