Hello,

I'm downloading SQL Developer form this site;
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/sql-developer/downloads/index.html
I have downloaded the 64 bit version, sqldeveloper-4.0.3.16.84-x64, 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?

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)

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'.
