Oracle SQLDeveloper is designed primarily for Oracle databases. Why do you think it should work for a completely unrelated Sybase database which has completely different data dictionaries etc.?

Part of their mission is to help people migrate from other DBs:
"Oracle SQL Developer is Oracle's Migration tool to migrate non-Oracle databases to Oracle. Migrating with Oracle SQL Developer reduces the time, risks, and financial barriers involved in migrating to the Oracle platform."
I wish they were focused 100% on their existing customers, but you can't blame Oracle for trying to recruit more licences.
