Oracle 7.3 - Oracle 23c 20+ years of experience Version (Released: )
01 Feb 2018
In KeepTool 12.1.8, the connect dialog now always lists TNS aliases in the combo box. Above all, it works now if an Oracle Instant Client is used. Therefore, you have to provide the location of a tnsnames.ora file in the TNS_ADMIN Windows environment variable.
As you may remember, there is an expandable section in the lower part of the connect dialog. For instance, it shows the file path of the currently used Oracle Home. This information is now extended by a different [TNS_ADMIN] location, if defined using the TNS_ADMIN environment variable or the TNS_ADMIN registry entry. That path overrides the default location of the tnsnames.ora file in %oracle_home%\rdbms\admin.
Starting with Oracle 12c release 2, Oracle object names are no more restricted to a maximum of 30 characters. Therefore, the length check has been weakened to 128 characters for Oracle 12c release 2 databases.
In KeepTool 12.1.8 the order of Hora’s sidebar icons has been consolidated with the order of the corresponding main menu items.
