Toad simplifies this with its design, building, editing, debugging and management projects. The database developments by the Oracle consultants are managed and controlled by the Toad Data Modeler and the SQL Editor, the Built-in Database Browser, the Project Manager, and the Debugger.

Automated code testing

For application quality and faster delivery of code, Toad automatically creates and executes functional code tests.

Automated code analysis

Code reviews are important and they must be run using the industry’s best practices. For accurate and trusted analysis, the code is run through customizable rulesets like readability, correctness, maintainability and the naming conventions.
