Oracle SQL Developer Command Line (SQLcl) 22.2.1 Release Notes

July 2022

SQLcl on OTN | Getting Started Video | Downloads | FAQ | Forum

Bugs Fixed

Here is a limited list of some high priority bugs fixed for 22.2.1



Before You Start

JRE Support

  • SQLcl release 22.2.1 requires Oracle Java version 11 or 17.
  • 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\jdk-11.0.11

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 22.2.1 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
