The Devart team worked hard and now we are glad to introduce new features and improvements to one of our remarkable product lines – dbForge tools for Oracle, namely dbForge Data Compare, Documenter, Data Generator, and Schema Compare.
In these versions, we focused on the following improvements:
- Connectivity support
- Update of a comparison report in Data/Schema Compare
- Support for search index for JSON in Documenter
- Support for a CLUSTERING attribute in Documenter
- Support for command-line ignore options in Schema Compare
- Updated integration with version control systems in Schema Compare
Now, check out in detail what to expect from the update of the dbForge Oracle product line.
dbForge Oracle tools now provide connectivity support for Oracle 21c.
In dbForge Data Compare for Oracle, the Data Comparison Report has been drastically improved displaying actual differences in reports, such as what was added, removed, or modified.
For better performance, Documenter now supports a full-text search index for JSON data. You can generate a DDL script with a JSON search index using the CREATE SEARCH INDEX statement or the Generate Script As Create functionality.
You can specify a cluster model in the CREATE TABLE statement by adding a CLUSTERING attribute that filters values by linear order.
In dbForge Schema Compare for Oracle, we improved the behavior of the Ignore START WITH schema comparison option. In addition to sequences, it will also be ignored in identity columns during comparison and synchronization.
Also, the tool now provides new ignore comparison options. When enabled, they will be ignored in sequences and identity columns during comparison and synchronization. The options include:
- Ignore MAXVALUE
- Ignore INCREMENT BY
- Ignore CACHE
- Ignore CYCLE
The Schema Comparison Report has been dramatically improved. Now, it displays added, removed, or modified differences between objects as removed-added lines or crossed out words in a Schema Comparison report.
The HTML report can include filtered objects or objects selected for synchronization or only objects with differences, as well as display the synchronization script, warnings, comparison and synchronization options.
In dbForge Schema Compare for SQL Server, we have improved integration with version control systems. Now you can link to Azure DevOps Server (previously known as Team Foundation Server a.k.a. TFS), Git, Perforce, and SourceGear Vault version control systems.
The Devart team is constantly working on developing new features and improving the existing ones and will appreciate it if you share your feedback or ideas regarding the products included in this release: Schema Compare, Data Compare, and Documenter.
