The code editor is enhanced with context-sensitive syntax coloring, statement outlining, and region hiding. A large collection of code templates and optimized code completion and parameter information features work together to make working with source objectsand adding scripts easier. Scripting support now includes mouse-over information for source variables and schema objects. An extremely useful innovation is code navigation support.

Another goal of the new release is to make it easier to work with large databases and manage database developments. OraDeveloper Studio 2.00 allows developers to bookmark key schema objects and introduces an integrated project management framework for organizing related scripts and schema objects into easily accessible projects. Database projects with OraDeveloper Studio can be compiled, executed, deployed in any specified order, and exported to a single script.

To allow users to perform basic database administration tasks, the second version has added several nifty management wizards and monitors. New components include a built-in Security Manager for managing profiles, granting and revoking roles and privileges, and updating user accounts directly from the OraDeveloper Studio interface, a Session Manager for controlling and analyzing user sessions, and an Event Monitor for interchanging signals between database connections.

The new release also expands support for performing everyday object management tasks. It includes XML schema and Materialized View support and adds point-and-click object duplication, database backup, and full text, source, and object search.
