What’s New in dbForge Schema Compare for Oracle, v2.0

Schema snapshots and version control integration

The new version allows you to create schema snapshots, that are frequently used for audit and roll-back purposes, and automatically commit them to version control system, compare previous versions of schema with the current one (source control integration).

This functionality is extremely useful, as it provides a simple approach to significantly reduce time and effort needed for analyzing changes available in different database versions.

Command line support

Use command line to automate routine synchronizations. Now such tasks can be accomplished in the automatic unattended mode. This functionality allows one to use our tool for setting up continuous integration.

Comparison and synchronization of wrapped and unwrapped objects

With the help of this functionality, you can compare wrapped and unwrapped PL/SQL objects. This will allow you to detect changes in the production database, where objects are wrapped.

Extended support of schema objects

The new version supports clusters, object permissions, and java-source objects.

Compatibility

Support for Oracle 11 R2 Express Edition
