Toad DevOps Toolkit 2.0 - Installation Guide

Get started with Toad DevOps Toolkit

Toad DevOps Toolkit is not an interactive program like Toad for Oracle. Instead, it is built as a Windows Automation Server (COM) which provides a rich set of APIs that can be programmed and customized to suit your needs. It can also be integrated into any programming environment capable of creating and accessing COM objects.

Start and stop the toolkit

Since everything about using Toad DevOps Toolkit is up to you — which features you will use, how you want to integrate them into your processes, and so forth — what we can do is show you how to start and stop the toolkit itself. After you review the available features, have a look at the API documentation, and then start programming your database automation tasks to meet your needs.

Start a Toad DevOps Toolkit instance

Like all COM objects, you need to create an instance of Toad DevOps Toolkit for it to be usable. Each invokation of Toad.ToadAutoObject creates its own instance of Toad DevOps Toolkit (tdt.exe).


$TDT = New-Object -ComObject Toad.ToadAutoObject


Dim TDT as ToadAutoObject


l_tdt_object   varchar2(100) := 'Toad.ToadAutoObject';
l_result := 
   m.ordcom.createobject(l_tdt_object, 0, '', l_object_token);

Stop the Toad DevOps Toolkit instance

You will need to stop Toad DevOps Toolkit once it is finished running its tasks.






l_result := com.ordcom.destroyobject(l_object_token);   	
l_result := com.ordcom.destroyobject(l_com_token); 

Uninstall Toad DevOps Toolkit

  2. Select Toad DevOps Toolkit Installer.
  3. Select Uninstall/Change.
  4. Select the product in the Installer dialog.Important: The product will be removed without a prompt to confirm your intention.
