Using JDeveloper for PL/SQL Coding and Debugging

by Jeff Hunter, Sr. Database Administrator

If you thought JDeveloper was only for coding in Java, well, think again! JDeveloper allows you to work with Java, HTML, XML, SQL, and PL/SQL in a tightly integrated GUI environment. Another significant advantage with JDeveloper 9i is that it is written totally in Java, allowing it to be run on Linux, Windows, Solaris, and even a Macintosh.

One exciting feature that all Oracle developers will find useful in JDeveloper, is its integrated PL/SQL environment. Not only can you create, edit, and compile PL/SQL, so can debugging be accomplished through an integrated and interactive debugging environment. The debugging environment for PL/SQL works in much the same way in which you would use within the Java environment. The Oracle developer can Set Breakpoints, Watch Variables, Step Over, Step Into, Step Out, and so on. These features are available for any Oracle8i database or later.

I put together a few notes that may help assist while developing and debugging PL/SQL code using JDeveloper.
