  Configuring Database Access in Eclipse 3.0 with SQLExplorer
Subject:   Use Free TOAD

Thanks for writing the article for us. It allowed me to set up this plug-in within no time. That's great.

I compared the performance of SQLExplorer plug-in within Eclipse with "Free TOAD" client (for simple SELECT sql queries).

My SQLExplorer plug-in uses Oracle OCI driver, and so does the "Free TOAD".

But, consistently, Eclipse needed 1079 msecs (or so) whereas Free TOAD needed only 1/10th of that time (say, 100 msec).

Wouldn't I prefer "Free TOAD" to this SQLExplorer plug-in? Plus, "Free TOAD" looks nicer with more features available.

    Although TOAD may be a better choise for Oracle, it is important to have such a utility in Eclipse, rather than being tied to vendor specific environment.

    1079 msec! That's well over a second! Well.. I use SQLExplorer too with the Oracle thin driver and I don't face this problem.

    I hadn't heard of Free Toad. Will check it out

    TOAD only supports the databases Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL. TOAD bieng faster is definitely an advantage.
