First Look at 11g

We finally got around to installing the Oracle 11g client for our new development. This is an upgrade from Oracle 10g. Our first test was to try to log into the 10g database uses the 11g client. But we could not find the Windows SQL*Plus client (sqlplusw.exe).

Doh. Oracle is no longer shipping this product. They want you to use SQL Developer. Weak. I am contemplating bringing the one from the 10g client. Come on Oracle. We like sqlplusw. Yeah they ship the normal SQL*Plus. The DBAs use it. But us developers want our Windows version.
