I'm a SQL Server developer trying to pratice SQL scriptinging in ORACLE environment. Can any subject matter expert let me know exactly which tool I need to download to experiment with SQL scripting? It's kind of confusing as ORACLE has so many components. If I'm correct, SQL Plus might be the tool and PL/SQL is the ORACLE version of SQL language/scripting. I know that i can download 180 days of evaluation version software. Can someone tell me the exact link of the oracle tool where I can execute my SQL scripts?
You can use SQL*Plus, but coming from Windows/SQL world, you'll definitely enjoy using SQL Developer as well. That's a separate download. You'll have a worksheet, visual query builder, object navigator/browser, etc - much like you see in SSMS.
