Describe methods for displaying a table.

Definition

  • Use SQL Developer’s Object View to see table structure by connecting to a database and then selecting a table from the list.
  • Use Toad for Oracle to see an object’s structure by hovering your cursor over the object and pressing F4.
  • Use Application Express to display the definition of a table by selecting
    • object browser
    • browse table
    • table tab.
