Using Oracle SQL Developer with SQL Server

If you are looking for a SQL Client for both Oracle DB and Microsoft SQL Server you can use the Oracle SQL Developer with the jTDS plugin.

Get Oracle SQL Developer from the Oracle web site. Just use your favourite search engine to search for 'Oracle SQL Developer'. These instructions have been verified to work with SQL Developer 3.0.

Once you have installed Oracle SQL Developer, run it and go to the Help menu. There you should find the Check For Updates... option. There will be a dialog with Third Party SQL Developer Extensions as an option. Make sure this is selected.

On the next page there will be an option to select the jTDS extension. Select this for SQL Server and Sybase support.

Once you accept the license agreement and restart SQL Developer, you will now have a tab for SQL Server when creating a new connection.
