I’m not familiar with SQL Navigator, all I known is that it’s a Quest Tool but that’s it. Why don’t you give SQLTools a try and let us know what you think of it and how it compares to SQL Navigator.

When you don’t have a Tool like Toad, but you want something similar, consider TOra.

The biggest difference between TOAD and SQLTools is the price ;-).
TOAD is a great product, but most of the extra’s you get for free (well, not really free), I never use. A lot of these extra’s are of interest when you’re a DBA, and I’m not. The only things I do use in TOAD are the Schema Browser (to look at the data and source code), the SQL Window (for ad hoc queries) and the Procedure Editor. I’m still amazed a debugger is optional….
SQL*Navigator I have never used.

I think SQLTools is like combining SQL*Plus and your favourite editor rolled into one. And if they would expand it with say a code assistant, source control plugin and a code formatter, it could be all you need as a SQL or PL/SQL developer. Oh… add a debugger to the wishlist :)

(my french is terrible :(, but if you’re looking for documentation, you can find it here
