      • 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).
    • 14. Lecco Integration
      • LECCO scanner integration with code xpert for SQL scripts
    • 15. New Rules for Code Xpert
      • Approx 48 new rules have been added focusing on "best practices" for SQL*Plus scripting commands.
      • These rules are categorized and can be found under the "SQLPLUS" Category in the RuleSet configuration window.

      • Need to create a table but aren't able to run the command during Production hours? Schedule it to run after you leave work!
    • 17. 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
    • 18. Words from a Beta User
      • “ 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.”
    • 19. 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:
    • 20. Export File Browser
      • 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 as, or grid...print functions.
    • 21. Export File Browser – Continued
      • All of the data in the file can be exported out to all the Grid Formats supported by Toad's grid. You can also compare the contents of your Export .DMP file to the contents of a live database.
      Note: Does not work with Oracle’s new Data Pump File Formats
    • 22. Threaded Query Manager
      • The Query Viewer displays currently running background queries, the database where they are running, their current execution time and the SQL.
      • From this window you can cancel them, or display the SQL Editor page where they are running and view them in detail.
      • This output panel tab will ONLY show the queries that have run for the active editor tab.
      • Toad has a main Query Viewer window (under the View menu) which will show you ALL the user queries ran by Toad.
    • 23. Query Viewer
    • 24. Master Detail Browser
      • Now you are able to define
      • master-detail relationships in
      • the master detail browser w/o
      • having a foreign key.  This
      • does not add a foreign key, it
      • just tells the screen what rows
      • to show in the detail table
      • depending on the focused
      • row in the master table.
    • 25. Procedure Execution Improvements
