SQL Developer 3.0 Early Adopter Now Available

On Tuesday 19th January, the SQL Developer team released a third early adopter for general use. This SQL Developer 3.0 EA3 now includes the full Data Modeler 3.0, which is also running in an early adopter cycle. The significance of this is that you can open and edit data models from within SQL Developer.  If you are not a modeler, then this extension should not be in your way, but if you like to move between the Data Modeler and SQL Developer and prefer to work with one tool, you can.

The best way to start, once you have started SQL Developer is File > Data Modeler. If you are familiar with the Data Modeler, then you'll recognize all the menu options there.  Create a new model based on a DDL file or a schema in the database, then select > Import >...
The browser menu is available under View > Data Modeler > Browser and if you want to change any preference settings, just select Tools > Preferences > Data Modeler!

If you have any feedback on the integrated offering, then post a message on the forums: SQL Developer Forum or the Data Modeler Forum.

Do you have a link? The regular SQL Developer 2 page is still linking to EA2.

We'll get that link updated, in the meantime the main SQL Developer homepage: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/sql-developer/overview/index.html has the links to the downloads, release notes and the New Features docs.

Your blog is very useful, thank you!
Could you answer on one question about Developer v3? Will an export for query results be added in release? As it is presents in ver. 2
