The trusted Oracle client

DbVisualizer has everything you need to develop, connect and manage your Oracle database. It supports Oracle-specific object types and everything else that makes Oracle a great db.

Work with Oracle’s
specific object types

Object types

Oracle supports many different object types. Some are more common, like Schemas and Tables. Other object types are however unique to Oracle, such as TempTables, MaterializedViews, Packages and more. In DbVisualizer, you’ll easily find and manage the different objects in your database, just as intended by Oracle.

Object type actions

There is a purpose behind every object type and its intended use. As a powerful Oracle client, DbVisualizer supports the unique actions for the object types in Oracle. You can write SQL queries to perform the actions or simply right-click on the object and select the preferred action.

The best way to write
SQL for Oracle

Auto-complete

Writing SQL for Oracle isn’t exactly like writing SQL for other databases. DbVisualizer understands the subtle differences and provides relevant suggestions, letting you create better SQL queries more efficiently.

SQL formatting

Insert long, unformatted SQL queries into the Oracle client and automatically get it formatted for easy editing.

Variables

Some queries are built to be run repeatedly, perhaps only altering small details. Client-side variables for Oracle can be used to bring up a dialogue as a script is run, letting the user insert only these specific values (variables). This removes the need for any edits to the query itself.

Oracle autocomplete

Display relationships and dependencies automatically

Generate Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs)

The relationships between objects in Oracle are essential to understand. With automatically generated ERDs you’ll be able to visualize dependencies and opportunities directly in the Oracle client.

    Since I teach and use 3 database engines, it is the perfect tool to switch among them. I use it for SQL, PL-SQL and T-SQL development. I also use it in my common DBA tasks, either through graphical interface or by SQL script. It is reliable and I trust in its results. It has a nice and intuitive interface that allows me to work with different database servers using common commands. For example, if you need to export a table, you can use the same graphical interface or the same command line, (@export) whatever you are working with Oracle, MS SQL Server, MySQL or MariaDB.

    The ability to connect to a database-independent of platform from a single tool is the biggest reason for my use of DbVisualizer.
