Typhoon is a comprehensive and reliable application that was developed to assist you in managing the contents of your Oracle databases, enabling you to add, edit or remove tables without needing to resort to SQL statements to get the job done.
To gain access to the utility, you first need to create an account using a preferred set of credentials, which will then be required to enter every time you wish to work with Typhoon.
The program allows you to connect to a local or cloud server, by providing the necessary information, including name, version, driver and service ID. You can also input the network details, specifically the host and port number, along with the username and password, or even the database URL. Prior to saving the configuration, you can test the connection to make sure everything is in order.
Once you connect to the Oracle database, Typhoon allows you to view its contents, namely the tables that it comprises. You can browse through them, select a record and update it. Similarly, you can add a new one, as the tool enables you to ‘Insert Number Data’, ‘Insert Blob Data’, ‘Insert Clob Data’, ‘Insert String Data’ or ‘Insert Date Data’.
Moreover, you can create a new table by defining the number of columns that you need, assigning it a name, then filling out the columns and rows with the information you wish it to store. All of this can be done without having to resort to SQL statements or commands. Other options include the ability to drop tables from the database.
This Java-based utility also offers you a series of SQL 'Syntax References', (statements and functions) and which you can analyze in detail, to learn how to better work with them, then use them for your own purposes.
