Comments on: Oracle Raptor – Using Snippets (and adding User Defined Snippets) for quicker SQL and PL/SQL coding Friends of Oracle and Java Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:47:05 +0000 hourly 1 By: Patrick Sun, 22 Jan 2006 09:20:01 +0000 Alex (or anyone else),
Could you give any clues as to how you did that.
I tried, but got a bit stuck – I installed PackageManager, but didn’t get much further

1. Install java 1.5, you can find it here:
2. Append SetSkipJ2SDKCheck true to /path/to/raptor/jdev/bin/raptor.conf (please mind, no spaces in the path, this is a known bug)
3. Start the raptor file (sh raptor in /path/to/raptor ) Enter /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Home as J2SE home and you are set to go.

This early build is not supported on Mac, but it does work like a charm. You might need to switch to java 1.5 with the java preferences tool which can be found in /Applications/Utilities/Java/JS2E 5.0

Credit for this note goes to Thomas Barry, as posted on the otn forum. As Mac adept this seems to be the first serious Oracle database tool (next to sqlplus ;)), next to Aqua data studio (which has not so great pl/sql support).
