Recently our development efforts were focused on dbForge for SQL Server product line. We’ve made five major releases of SQL Server database tools in last 18 months. Besides, we’ve made two major releases of MySQL database tools in this period. Our Oracle database tools product line, once actively developed, was frozen for almost three years. Sure we made maintenance releases, but no new features and tools. Our Oracle tools even were not re-branded to dbForge for Oracle. But now we decided to breeze the new life into Oracle tools development.
The first tool in the dbForge for Oracle product line will be Data Compare. For the first release we decided to make a free tool with basic functionality:
- comparison and synchronization of tables only (views are not supported)
- table and column mapping (by name)
- type conversion is not supported (column types must match)
- only simple types will be supported
Tool intended to help accomplishing simple database synchronization tasks and we plan to keep it free while adding new features to the commercial version.
Release is scheduled at the first decade of August 2010.
After gaining some experience in SQL Server data compare tools development we decided to release.
