New Look and Feel of Compare Bundle for Oracle

We are glad to announce the release of the updated dbForge Compare Bundle for Oracle. The tools of the Bundle, dbForge Schema Compare for Oracle and dbForge Data Compare for Oracle,  have been improved in-and-out. Besides the great new visual style, the tools include a bunch of new features and options that will definitely make your data and schema diffs management more smooth and convenient.

Trial product activation

We’ve introduced a new mechanism that activates the dbForge comparison tools for Oracle. So, as for now, the tools work on the trial basis for 30 days. When this time period expires, dbForge tools for Oracle must be activated with a purchased activation key. The new activation process protects you against potential piracy and provides you with the reassurance that you are using an authentic product that can be trusted with your business data.

New visual style

We have dramatically improved the visual style of our Oracle comparison tools. Now they look as classy as never before. We try to follow and embrace the latest design trends and implemented a flat design concept for all the tools. Oh, and all of the tools look just fabulous on high-DPI screens!

Improved comparison report

The Generate Comparison Report dialog box now allows creating reports in the XML and XML for Excel file formats along with the HTML and Excel file formats.

Support for PowerShell
