    You can directly connect using jdbc thin method without install the oracle client in your local.

    SQL Developer's default connection to the database is using the thin JDBC driver.
    Defaulting to using the JDBC thin driver means there is no requirement for an Oracle
    client install minimizing the configuration and footprint.

    Youdon't need to use the Advanced connection, Basic connection is sufficient.

    You just need to provide a host, port number (probably 1521), and a SID or SERVICE. You can get these from the tnsnames file if you have one or from your DBA.
