Toad - Mac Edition progress

about Toad for Oracle · · Helpful Not helpful

Through the last couple of years Toad - Mac Edition has grown and added support also for MongoDB, which is quite an exceptional as it can view the data in the most comprehensive way you could find. Anyway, Toad - Mac Edition is not a Toad for Oracle OS X port or anything similar, it's a rich content app based on Toad Extension for Eclipse, an Eclipse plugin for development and management of Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL and MongoDB structures. It's quite a complex tool considering it's free and you get express support on toadworld.com community page, so if you need to sort out anything, you can just post your question or issues there and the stuff will get back in a matter of hours or a couple of days at worst or some more experienced user may give you some advice.

Mac Edition

about Toad for Oracle · · Helpful Not helpful

DBAs seem to have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Toad. Personally I always appreciated its strengths, but was always disappointed that it was only ever supported on Windows.

Some people have got Toad to work on Crossover, but it wasn't sufficiently stable for me, so I am quite excited that there is now a new version of Toad available for OS X. This is currently quite basic compared to the Windows version, but it is also currently free and hopefully a sign that Dell may put some resource into a proper Mac and maybe Linux port.
