We no longer ship SQL Developer with the database media, because:
- it's big
- we update it every 3 months
- most people already have sql developer
So if you want to run it on the database server, you'll need to go to oracle.com/sqldeveloper, and download the right package
The SQL binary you see there is for SQLcl.
Thanks for your kind reply and for your help.
I just watched your excellent youtube video on Oracle SQLcl Demonstration. You provided great details; this is what I understood: we can download SQLCl and install on our pc/laptop and next we can connect to our oracle database without going through sqlplus or sql developer. So why do we have sql.exe for SQLcl binary provided in oracle bin directory? Are we able to use SQLcl while logged in to Oracle instead of using sqlplus? For example, if I am in my /u01 or in $ORACLE_HOME directory, can I use SQLcl ?
I want to use SQLcl, but I only have virtualbox for testing, and I have access to RAC but that is on 184.108.40.206.0 on RHEL.
