Web Development

Working With SQL Navigator > Web Development

The SQL Navigator Web Development module provides an integrated development environment with advanced coding, testing, and viewing of PL/SQL programs for the Oracle Web server. This allows users to develop the PL/SQL code independent of the web server and view the HTML in an integrated web browser, thereby eliminating the need to switch from their coding environment to an external browser. The stored procedure will output the HTML code via the Oracle Web Cartridge.
