Visual Object Editors for Oracle

Visual Object Editors will help you modify database objects from the context menu as easily as possible.

dbForge Studio for Oracle provides an opportunity to create and edit objects using visual objects editors. So there is no need to type SQL code to create or edit database objects in Oracle as this can be done simply from the context menu of the corresponding object (node) in Database Explorer.

There are objects editors for the following object types: tables, views, packages, procedures, functions, triggers, user types (array types, object types, table types), sequences, materialized views, materialized view logs, synonyms, clusters, database links, XML schemas.

Designing tables

Table Designer is a universal tool for creating and editing tables visually. The tool's grid allows for effortless managing of columns, specifying major properties, adding and removing primary keys, adding comments, and defining collations.

The creation of columns within the application is convenient as well as time-saving: when you enter frequently-used column names, such as ID, Name, or Price, the application will automatically set the corresponding data type.

Besides, all changes you make in the visual grid are reflected in the table DDL located below. So, if you are editing an existing table, you can see all changes you make in the application SQL editor.

Views

A database view is a subset of the actual data sorted and displayed in a particular way. Views contain no data on their own, but retrieve it from the underlying tables when queried. They can join and simplify multiple tables or views into one virtual table. With Studio for Oracle, you can easily create a view, modify it, or drop as well as retrieve and alter data in the underlying tables. If any changes are necessary, go to the Editor and alter the text of a query.

Synonyms

A synonym is an alternative name for a schema object. The use of synonyms can greatly boost security by masking the name and owner of a database object as well as providing location transparency. In the visual editor, use one tab to define all synonym properties. You can switch to the Text tab to view object code.
