A CRUD Matrix is tabular representation of the data access for a given piece of SQL or PL/SQL code.
C reate * R etrieve * U pdate * D elete
Note that CRUD Matrices can also be created at the columnar level. While the name remains CRUD, the options are actually Create (i.e. INSERT), Retrieve (i.e. SELECT), Update and Delete (i.e. NULLIFY – you cannot delete a column’s value, rather you set it to NULL).
Schedule any DDL task with Toad's new Task Scheduler Interface!
Have an index that needs altered? Go thru the Alter Index GUI and hit the 'Schedule' Button.'
Need to create a table but aren't able to run the command during Production hours? Schedule it to run after you leave work!
Just In Time Debugging Supports Oracle Developer, Visual Basic, Delphi, PowerBuilder, etc This feature is extremely useful when the client-server application calls a stored program with complex parameters, such as cursors, that are not easily simulated from Toad. Rather than trying to simulate the complex environment within Toad, you can simply connect to the external application and then debug the code in its native environment. External Application Oracle Database Debug PL/SQL
“ What you really need is for TOAD to support "remote" debugging sessions.
Oracle JDev has this. Since your web app is running as it's own user,
you cannot easily debug those sessions within TOAD. A remote debugger
will "listen" for a procedure invocation and then fire up the debugger
and interrupt the processing. This would allow TOAD to catch a
web-based execution session and then drop into debug mode. This would
cause the web app to "hang/freeze" while the debugger is running, with
return passed back to the web app when the debug session is over.
Without this type of set-up, it's very difficult to see the data move
between the front end and the stored proc.
I would love to see this as an enhancement. It would increase our
productivity ten fold.”
Operations Console QuickConnect (c) is simply a way to get a new connection fast, and to see them organized by server: Offered in the Project Manager, so you can execute Scripts across multiple databases at once. This shows us executing the profiler script on the LER10G and ORSO92 databases simultaneously:
The Export File Browser is a new window in 8.5 for users with the DBA or Professional modules. It can be found in the DBA menu, under the "Data Export and Import" submenu.
This window lets you browse Oracle Export files. You can see what objects are in them and get DDL for one or multiple objects (or for a whole schema). You can also look at the data of any table (or partition of a table) in a grid, and use Toad's grid...save as, or grid...print functions.
