What I’m Planning to Focus on in 2022 as a Developer
Obviously getting paid bro On a more serious note I’m working out how to fit Emacs into my workflow. Yup and then after that I’m working on a terminal application to mimic what the database explorer does in SQL Developer or DBeaver. Wait What? Is it 2003? Hear me out…
Connecting DBeaver to Oracle Free Cloud Tier Database (With Keyfiles)
It would be both wonderful but also terrible if everything were easy no? Someone would just have instructions for you to get chugging on. This is not the case especially with software. Documentation is not always present or easy to find. This is pretty true if you want to connect to oracle’s free cloud tier databases using DBeaver. There are plenty of guides on how to jump on an oracle server on your network but very little about the cloud instances. The first result (at least as of writing) on google to connecting DBeaver to Oracle Cloud is a github issue for dbeaver This is not very re-assuring and neither are any of the top 5 results. Further down the details do exist in oracle’s guidance but they are pretty generic and do not explain where a specific IDE like DBeaver stores this stuff. Don’t worry I wrote down what I did! Assuming you landed on this page I won’t bore you with the details of how to sign up for Oracle always free cloud. I’m going to assume like me you’re using oracle’s free cloud to do some learning or just to mess around and that you’re trying to use DBeaver rather than the web based copy of SQL developer.
