New administrator

With the kind support of Steven Feuerstein (plsqlguy), I have recently been added to this project as a new administrator. I hope to dust off a few cobwebs and get the lights turned back on, as it were. utPLSQL is an excellent utility and it'd be nice to see it continue as an active project!

Updated ToadScript

It now allows direct running of test packages where there is no associated package. So you can test ut_foobar even if there is no package foobar.

1) Get the latest version from CVS. For details of how to do this, see:


2) Once you have made your changes, I would suggest doing a CVS update to see if anyone has changed anything in the meantime (unless you code very quickly!).... read more
