TOra – Toad Opensource Alternative

I have not used Toad before but I have heard that it is a very excellent tool for Oracle DBAs for administrating databases. Previously, we were using Oracle 10g grid control. Ever since we have moved to Windows 7, I could no longer get it working on my laptop. I needed an Opensource tool that is similar to Toad or Grid Control.

From TOra Website
