I need to connect to a legacy Oracle 8 database.
Oracle SQL Developer would be my tool of choice, but the current version doesn't support Oracle 8 anymore.
I tried Squirrel too, but the connection is awfully slow (and I can verify via JDBC that identical queries can actually run very fast)
My platform is Ubuntu on x86, I would consider
- native solutions
- Java-based solutions
- Eclipse-based solutions (I previously used jOra, but it seems to be gone)
