    Cool

    Does anyone have information on comparisons for
    TOAD vs OEM or other tools .. We are looking at
    buying some 3rd party tools to help us.. but need
    good comparison information that would show each
    tool and its competitors options etc...

    HELP

    Check out EZSQL. http://www.ezsql.net. It is very powerful and comes at a fration of the price of TOAD. Also free upgrades, free support, and a 60 day trial period. Also it is faster than TOAD.

    At http://www.ezsql.net you will find a link to a review by a 3rd party, as well as a link to some of EZSQL's screen shots which should give you a good idea of what it can do...

    Each Tool is developed keeping specific professional in mind. Couple of tools for Application developers perspective and couple of 'em from DBA's perspective and few from both perspectives.

    You have to Justify your requirements...

    Application Developers:
    TOAD/SQL Navigator/EZ SQL/Precise SQL
    DBAs:
    OEM
    DBArtisian
    Precise Enterprize
    Other Platinum/BMC Products

    Sam,

    EZSQL is geared towards application developers AND DBAs.
    It is rich in both DBA and developer utilities, and I think this is one thing that makes it stand out from the others....

    To be frank, I have no knowlege of how TODE/EZSQL works. In the past, having some conversations with some of my frinds on the same field, I learnt that TODE is kind of hard to configure. But has some cool funck gui features. EZSQL NO Idea!!

    Now coming to talk about the OEM, got some idea .

    1. It is an oracle product.
    2. No need to caugh out extra money. Comes with the Oracle Packages.
    3. Being a product of oracle, intergration is smooth, but full of Larry's promises
    4. Does not support all features that are available on windows on its unix platform editions.
    5. You can create event triggers to monitor your instance and fire a message to your pager or to an email a/c
    6. Can do backup and recovery using RMAN.
    7. Can create batch jobs.
    8. Can graphically generate charts on the database performance (Only available on the oracle performance tuning pack, comes with OEM bundle, seperate CD. works only on Bill's product Windows)

    Since it is free with oracle, I would go for it. Remember, it is not worth the while to totally depend on these GUIs to run the database. It would be allways good if you know the command level approach. This was only a suggestion.

    Good luck,
    Sam
    Thanx

    One of the things that EZSQL users really like is that if they have a feature request, all they have to do is ask. 9 times out of 10 I'll have the enhancement available within a week. What are the odds of that happening with OEM or TOAD?

    Hi

    For development, try the pl\sql develper from http://www.allroundautomations.nl/plsqldev.html

    I have used this toll for the last year and a half and i think that for development it is better then ezsql, sql navigator and toad.
