Hello my name is Anju Gandhi, product manager for Toad for Oracle. Today we'll discuss a new feature in Toad for Oracle 12-- the Jump Search feature.
The Jump Search feature has its usage around three main categories. The first category allows you easier navigation within Toad product-- helps you locate Windows' menu options, code snippets, coding rules, files. The second usage helps you find resolutions to Oracle error messages that occur while running scripts or while performing any Toad actions.
The third usage helps you key in any word, and perform searches all across the Toad world.com user community, which contains a vast amount of blogs, articles written by experts and users, and also performs search in the standard Toad Help-- perform searches in the support portal for Toad. And the knowledge expert is now included in Toad world search as well.
So in one single click, you can navigate to any Windows' menus items. You can have Jump Search feature locate any articles or blogs related to the Oracle error message that you are getting. Or it can take you outside in the web browser to locate for all the articles on the web for that error message.
And you can also perform your blog searches, your standard Toad Help searches, using this feature. The Jump Search feature is located on the upper right-hand side, in the same location where previously the search bar was located.
Now, I'm going to type in the keyboard "tablespace" here. And it comes back with the search results immediately. The categories are Windows, Menus and Tool Bars Options, Files, Coding Analysis Rules, and many more below.
So in the Windows, if I double click on Tablespaces, it opens a tablespaces window for me. Similarly if I type in the keyword "tablespace," again, and I double click on the Menus and Toolbar Tablespaces, it will highlight the menu for me.
Now if I want to perform the search in the Toad World User Forums Articles, I can read about that by just double clicking on it. And it will open the Article Blog User Forum for me. Similarly if I'm looking for some keyword, and I want to see if there is any Help documentation on it, I can take on Toad Help. And it can perform the search for me, and open the standard Toad Help for me.
Now let's come back to the part where let's say you are executing any script in Editor, and you encounter any Oracle error message. So you have the Jump button here. You click on it, and it automatically types in your Oracle error message, and then performs the Jump Search across all the places that a regular Jump Search will. You also have an ability to always go and search web, which will open an external web browser to perform that search for you.
So here you see how you can just go from an Oracle error message, to some user forum where people are having the similar issue and discussing that. So you can continue your workflow from the Oracle error message, read about the forum, and you get your information back. And you can continue working. And this is all happening all inside Toad.
