Before You Start

JRE Support

  • SQLcl release 21.4 requires Java version 1.8 and above. Go here to download the latest version.
  • If SQLcl cannot find a local JRE, you will be prompted to enter the location path for the JRE. Note that the prompt wants only the folder, not the java.exe.  For example C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_262
  • Java versions 9 and 10 are not supported.

Known Issues

  • Invoking SQL Recall for a previous statement which has a line exceeding the width of your display, the in-line editor will be unable to access or edit the line with the overflow. Workaround this issue by resizing your terminal display wide enough to prevent line-wrapping.
 


Platform Support

  • SQLcl release 21.4 is available for Windows 10 and Windows Server 2008/2012, Linux or Mac OS X. (See full Certification)
  • If using a OCI “Thick” connection type, a 21c Oracle Client will be required


 
Installing or Upgrading

All new releases of SQLcl and SQL Developer require a full installation. Download and unzip the file into an empty folder. Ensure the "Use folder names" checkbox is checked when unzipping the file.
