Oracle's SQLDeveloper broken script execution



  • Right now I'm sitting here in my work computer without being able to do any copy/pasting because of this:

    When running a long script in SQLDeveloper, on each step a selection is made, thus not allowing me to select anything anywhere else.

    Stupid!



  •  Ah, from the UI Automation school of thought.



  • First time hering about this.

    FTFY.



  • Copy pasta



  • Ah, it probably selects the next SQL command, copies it to the clipboard, (prints it, places it on a wooden table, ???, profit), pastes it into a (hidden) command window and executes it there. At least that's how I would have written it, it's the only sane way to ensure only one statement runs at a time, so they don't get into each other's way.

    TRWTF is that Oracle is such shit that it may very well puke if you hand it a wad of statements in one command.

    I'm more of a POSIX guy, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that Windows probably has something that's enough like a pipe that you don't need to pretend the clipboard is one.

    It's a java program, and it behaves the same way on Linux. I doubt it's doing anything clipboard related, though they may not be storing the buffer elsewhere for evaluation purposes. It's really an interactive environment for running stuff. I wonder what the OP is really up to.
