Verifications for NetBeans versions

Plugin is not subject to any verification


The aim of PL/SQL Editor is to provide a convenient way to work with the following Oracle objects inside IDE:
  • Functions
  • Procedures
  • Packages Specification
  • Packages Body
  • Types Specification
  • Types Body
  • Triggers

With each object you could perform the following operations:
  • Add - create a new object
  • Edit - edit the object source code
  • Compile - compile the server-side object
  • Compile Local File - compile the object from the local file
  • Delete - drop the object

It's also possible Refresh (reload) nodes and discovers Properties. The unique feature of PL/SQL Editor is the PL/SQL language syntax recognition. This means that PL/SQL code will be parsed during code typing or loading and syntactically checked. This gives possibility to correct code before compiling. The PL/SQL Editor also supports code folding, code navigation and other features.

For more details including installation and documentation please check the project home page.

Thank you!

Installing in NetBeans 6.5.x

Unlike "lriera" I was able to install the PL/SQL plugin into Netbeans 6.5. First I got error messages, too. After setting "-J-Xmx"-Parameter in "netbeans.conf" no more problems occured.

Please make this plugin support other DBs too

I'd like to see this plugin turned into something that also supports Postgres, MySQL, MSSQL, etc.
