SQL Developer’s “SQL History”

I don’t know about you, but I now love the SQL History button (F8) in SQL Developer. So many times I have found that I have lost unsaved work, or overwritten existing. I have always wished that there was a way to recover past queries.

Well, as it turns out, SQL Developer has a SQL History button. Pressing the “F8” key, or from the “View” menu, select the menu option:

This will bring up a new tab, which shows all the queries that have been run in the last while:

Unfortunatly, the problem is that you can look, but you can’t really touch. There is no way to copy the entries to the clipboard or back into a worksheet. Luckily there is a solution/workaround. There are a number of files that are kept locally, which is a running history of everything you have done.

UPDATE: It appears that if you double click on the History item, it will be copied onto the currently active SQL Worksheet. This saves having to search through the history files.

These files can be found at C:\Documents and Settings\.sqldeveloper, or in my case, C:\Documents and Settings\<login profile name>\Application Data\SQL Developer\system1.\.history\.

In my case, the folder named “0” had a number of files for the last month, each of which contained revisions of previous days work. Sort by Date Modified and find what you need from there:
