RE: Tool recommendation

I second Christoph-  I use this same version of PL/SQL Developer and have 
adopted it as my favorite.  It can be configured to leave a much lighter 
footprint on the data dictionary than some of the heavier featured tools, too, 
especially if you have numerous developers and DBA's all utilizing a GUI to 
work all day...
 
Less raved about, especially with Grid Control's OEM, is the stand alone OEM 
from Oracle that came with 10g.  I've got a few developers and DBA's that have 
this as a second GUI window into the database-  especially when I have someone 
come to me, frustrated that no one has installed an agent on a brand new 
development database, I can steer them towards this to give me some breathing 
space.  Just install it as part of the 10g client install and it will give them 
a quick window into sessions, long ops, configurations and a light weight 
tool.  Nicest part is that it's Java, so if you have a problem, just kill it 
from your task manager, it could care less!

My favorite is PL/SQL Developer by Allround Automations. It is light weight, 
intuitive and low priced.
It has a query builder, which is good for less savvy users. You can easily copy 
query results to Excel. It even has charting capabilities.
