I suspected already that JDeveloper and SQL Developer shared the same code. The GUI and LAF are too similar to be a coincendence also.

You were asking about having the same firewall issue as with JDeveloper. There is a good reason for that: my understanding is that Oracle stripped code right out of JDeveloper to create SQL Developer!

I am not trying to convince people to switch from TOAD or any other tool to SQL Developer. This tool is however an option for some people, and it does have potential in my opinion. So please do not disqualify it because it does not suit your needs.

SQL Developer is *bagger* from the upper shelf. It does a very poor job when working with xmltype data types and functions or working with AQ, to name a few. Even iSQLPlus does a better job at these points. At least in iSQLPlus (and the good old SQLPlus) shows the XML when queriing an xmltype column, in SQL Developer it shows (XMLTYPE).

In all cases it avoids port 80, and if 80 is the only choice it uses “0”. I’m not sure if this is done deliberately (security?) or if ithe protocol itself is not suitable to use port 80 for debugging.

I noticed most of the developers were pretty green about database technologies, so SQL Developer would be more than what they need.

The DBAs thought it was cool cause they all hate TOAD. They prefer DBartisain, and for DBA work I would have to say that is the tool to go with.

Have you tried using port 79-80? It might us 80 if it tends to choose the higher port #. Let us know.

By the way, I tried to force the debugger to communicate on port 80 in order to circumvene the FW bug. This is not possible though. When I select range 80 through 80 it uses port “0” (and throws an error!) and with the range 80 through 81 is uses port 81. Too bad, but it was worth a try.

Even if you stay with the Oracle LAF, you can swap between a lot of themes.
