What Is SQL Developer?

A free integrated development environment called Oracle SQL Developer makes it easier to create and administer Oracle Databases for both on-premises and cloud deployments. As well as offering a worksheet for running queries and scripts, a DBA console for managing the database, a reports interface, a complete data modeling solution, and a migration platform for transferring your third-party databases to Oracle, SQL Developer also offers end-to-end development of your PL/SQL applications.

Running queries against your Oracle Database might be all that it is, or it could be a full-fledged modeling, development, and management solution. You are given a tour of the full product during this session.

The important is that this tool is fully free and you can use to play with Oracle Database. If you will spend more time you can also use this Oracle tool to connect to other databases – all you need is just add required JDBC library.
