Toad (acronym for Tool for Oracle Application Developers) is arguably one of the most popular and best known tools used by most people dabbling in Oracle databases ( or for that matter, most relational databases anyway).

Toad’s got more features than your average SQL/ PL/SQL developer would use,and hence got a bit of a steep learning curve.
Well first it was Nine Inch Nails offering their single Discipline for free download and now Coldplay has taken the same route, offering their single “Violet Hill” from their New album “Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends” for free download. Enjoy the song, it’s awesome. Cant’ wait for their album.
