======================================================== The Tool for Oracle Application Developers T.O.A.D. (r) Copyright (c) 1995-2000 Quest Software All Rights Reserved ======================================================== ------------------------------------LICENSING ISSUES FOR THE FREE VERSION ------------------------------------This is a free use version of TOAD. This version is the same as the 5.11.05 release of TOAD from ToadSoft with many additional fixes. No enhancements are planned for this free version. This version expires 60 days from the DATE OF RELEASE and is updated each month at the first of the month with any fixes and a new 60 day expiration date. This version may be used for a maximum of five (5) users within any one Organization, as defined in the attached End User Agreement. Organizations with more than five (5) users must purchase the registered version of TOAD. Quest Software reserves the right to change this limitation at any time. If you wish to obtain a registered version of TOAD with the new enhancements, visit www.quest.com or www.toadsoft.com ------------------------------------Why register TOAD? ------------------------------------Registered users will have web access to bug fixes and enhancements. Licensed TOAD users will get bug fixes, regular and frequent enhancements and new features, such as Oracle 8 and 8i object support, Debugger and Tuning Modules, and more. Access to Quest Software technical support staff. Technical support will be available to licensed users via email at [email protected]
Users will get 24-hour email response on all questions and issues submitted. Quest Software technical support is available 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. PST, Monday through Friday business days. Annual license - means current 60 day timeout is removed. Purchase of an annual license removes the 60-day timeout and entitles the purchaser to one full year of use. Y2K compliance. All features in the licensed version will be Y2K compliant and are backed by Quest Software�s statement of compliance. --------------LICENSE FILE(s) --------------TOAD will require a valid license file upon startup. This file must be named TOAD.LIC Toad is distributed with two license files named: FULLTOAD.LIC and READONLY.LIC. If you want to install a readonly version of TOAD for a user, copy READONLY.LIC as TOAD.LIC.
------------WHAT IS TOAD? ------------TOAD was begun in 1995 as a personal development aid and has grown to be used daily by many thousands of developers. There are similar tools on the market, but none can better TOAD's simple developer oriented interface, the author's attention to users, or the PRICE. So, what you must remember when evaluating TOAD or while using TOAD is that TOAD is first and foremost a developer's aid. The interface is simple by design. The features are either what the author personally want in an Oracle tool or what TOAD users have requested. TOAD wasn't built on features that were "cool" or fun to implement; nor with an interface that looked "slick" since, generally, the slicker it looks, the worse it is to operate. If there is a feature that is lacking, a report that is missing, an interface implementation that is nagging, send an email to [email protected]
If it isn't there, it probably hasn't been requested. ------------------------TOAD REQUIREMENTS/INSTALL ------------------------(1). This version of TOAD is distributed as a zip file only. To install, create the destination directory, run WinZip (or a similar compression application), extract all files from TOADFREE.ZIP with the option to use directory names (this installs some files into a sub-directory named <toad dir>\temps. That's all there is. (2). For the TOAD temp tables, run temps\toadprep.sql to create a separate TOAD schema. Or if you do not want a separate schema for the TOAD temp tables, run temps\notoad.sql. Note, this is an optional step; TOAD will run without the creation of any database objects. -------------------SQL*NET2 CONNECTIONS -------------------TOAD also requires that all Oracle connections utilize 32 bit SQL*NET2 via TNS. Therefore, any Oracle database accessed through TOAD must have appropriate entries in the SQLNET2.INI and the TNSNAMES.ORA files. If you are an Oracle developer, you already know this and are most likely already using TNS entries for server/protocol mapping. Optionally, you can connect to Personal Oracle databases using "2:" as the database name (other possible options for Personal Oracle are LOCAL and BEQ-LOCAL). --------------GETTING STARTED --------------When TOAD first loads, the main MDI screen appears and an initial TOAD Login Window is displayed. This window will prompt for a
Database, UserName, and Password (typical Oracle stuff). The database name should be one of the valid Oracle TNS entries. The user and password are the user/password for the schema to which you want to connect. For example, one of the sample schemas that is installed with Personal Oracle v7.3 has a user/password of DEMO/DEMO. The TNS entry may be (and this value will vary according to your installation) either LOCAL or BEQ-LOCAL. Previous connections will display in a list on the left of the Login window. TOAD does store passwords for previous logins if the appropriate option is enabled. On most TOAD screens, the Oracle connection active for that screen will display in the first or second panel of the status bar at the bottom of that particular screen. This is important to note because with several connections active, you will need to know which connection is currently active for the active window. Several TOAD functions also require the creation of Oracle tables; for example, Explain Plan. To create these tables, load the file \temps\TOADPREP.SQL into a SQL Edit Window; and then follow the on-screen instructions. TOADPREP will require creation of a new Oracle schema named TOAD. Alternatively, if you want to create the required Oracle tables but do not want to create a new schema, load and execute the script file \temps\NOTOAD.SQL. NOTOAD will create the objects in the current schema and grant public access to them for all other users. If you already have a PLAN_TABLE in your database, you do not HAVE to create any TOAD objects; however, the Schema Export and recursive Dependencies search will not work. -----------------TECHNICAL SUPPORT: -----------------No support is available for the free version. ---------------------------FREEWARE END-USER AGREEMENT: ---------------------------Quest Software, Inc. 8001 Irvine Center Drive, Irvine, California 92618 Phone: (949) 754-8000; Fax: (949) 754-8999; email: inf[email protected]
