A few days ago we got version 18.3 of a bunch of Oracle tools.
Over the weekend I updated some of my VirtualBox and Vagrant builds to include these versions. If you want to play around with them you can see them on GitHub here.
- Oracle Database 12.2, APEX 18.2, ORDS 18.3, SQLcl 18.3, Tomcat 9
- Oracle Database 18c, APEX 18.2, ORDS 18.3, SQLcl 18.3, Tomcat 9
I also updated my ORDS Docker container build, which uses both ORDS and SQLcl. You can find this on GitHub here.
I use this container for live demos of ORDS, as well as a demo for my “DBA Does Docker” talk, which I am doing at Oracle OpenWorld this year.
I put the latest versions of SQL Developer and SQLcl on my laptop. I’m doing an analytic functions talk at Oracle Code One this year. The demos use SQLcl on my laptop connecting to Autonomous Transaction Proccessing (ATP) on Oracle Cloud. I had a little bit of drama with SQLcl on Saturday, which turned out to be PEBCAK. I thought “SET ECHO ON” wasn’t working, but it turned out I had a “login.sql” file in the path that contained “SET TERMOUT OFF”. Once I removed that setting the demos ran fine. 🙂
I’m going to put a freeze on changing my stuff until after OpenWorld and Code One. Honest. 🙂
