    Default SQL applications

    Just wanting to get started on learning SQL, and wondering what people
    consider the best application to use to learn. I was thinking the Oracle
    SQL Developer.
    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/de...ads/index.html

    Anyone else ever use this, and if so, thoughts on how to install, ease
    of use, etc.?

    Thanks in advance

    If you want to learn sql/oralce then you should install oracle server
    and then use "developer"(client) to "work"/run sql scripts ect with the
    database

    A better alternative is to use sql-lite to learn basics and then proceed
    to mariadb/workbench which is available in the repos

    Oracle server is pretty heavy weight and will bog down your machine.

    The is https://kb.askmonty.org/en/a-mariadb-primer/ which will introduce you to the SQL program you are most likely to use with openSUSE (and a lot more documentation at https://kb.askmonty.org/en/mariadb-documentation/)
