  1. Hello Douglas,

    Could you please let me know if in the exam one could use SQL Developer ( for command line solutions ) instead SQLPLUS ? ( sure when it is possible )

    If not , does SqlPlus have any wrapper installed ? ( I mean are you able to use arrows in SqlPlus to keep history ).

    Thank you kind.

    • I do not know if you can use SQL Developer.

      In the exam, I use either:

      • Grid Control Console, or
      • SQL*Plus

      This is what I use everyday as a DBA. I find the DBA functionality of SQL/Developer to be not very useful.


      • Douglas,

        I see you mentioned that you have attempted 11g OCM Upgrade second time.

        Were the scenarios in Attempt 2 different from Attempt 1 ? or both were same ?

        Sorry for asking you a similar question again.


      • Sandeep,

        I understand from my NDA that I cannot describe the actual questions on the OCM exam.
