Oracle SQL Developer Command-Line Debian package builder

sqlcl-package for Debian and derivatives

sqlcl-package is a small script that will build a Debian package from Oracle‘s SQL Developer Command-Line (SQLcl).

This utility makes it possible to build a Debian package of Oracle SQL Developer Command-Line. The Oracle SQL Developer Command-Line program is governed by the copyright holder (Oracle USA, Inc.), so you may be limited as to what you can do with the resulting package (i.e. no redistribution, etc). This utility will simply help you create the Debian package, it is your responsibility to use the resulting package acordingly with the OTN license, a copy of which is included in the created package, that you must agree on when downloading the source.

This utility will require you to download the architecture independent archive from <>, identified as “Oracle SQL Developer Command-Line for All Platforms”, to create the Debian package from.

The Debian Package sqlcl-package

In order to run Oracle SQL Developer Command-Line you’ll need a working JRE. The minimum JRE you should use is 1.8 (JRE8.0).

There are several ways to obtain a compatible JRE:

After installing a compatible JRE simply launch SQL Developer Command-Line by invoking either sqlcl (the recommended way), sqlcl.standalone, sql.[upstream version] or sql.[upstream version].standalone. The JRE will be automatically detected and used as long as properly installed.
