I am a bit confused: I want to connect an Oracle DB with the application "MySQL Workbench". In order its from Oracle as well I throught that this is possible. But until now Im not able to do so.

With the "Oracle SQL Developer" is it working, so my credentials have to be correct.

Is it just impossible to connect an oracle db with mysql workbench?

kind regards mario

It was a similar question couple weeks ago, and I just wonder why do you think it's possible at all ? From what I know they are very different products, and the fact that Oracle acquired Mysql recently (ok, not so recently) doesn't mean that you can use Mysql tools for Oracle database... –  a1ex07 Oct 26 '13 at 22:54

Yes it's impossible. MySQL & Oracle Server have nothing in common. Don't expect any MySQL tool to work on Oracle (or vice-versa) unless it's clearly stated in it docs. –  Mat Oct 27 '13 at 6:47
    
Mat is wrong btw. OracleSQL Developer is native capable to connect to Oracle and MySQL. When you want to add a new connection you can choose either MySQL or Oracle. –  Munchi Oct 28 '13 at 7:57
    
Thanks for your answers. I thought not that oracle own this product they made it able to connect to a oracle database. Is there a semilar tool like workbench for oracle dbs? –  Mario Oct 29 '13 at 16:18
