    Hi Harsha, Welcome to the Forums...

    TOAD is merely a tool that Oracle developers use to write PL/SQL code. What someone probably told you is that Oracle is a good career option, which undoubtedly it is. Like any other field, this requires education, experience and expertise.

    HI Harsha, my friend, like I told you TOAD is not a technology or domain. It's ORACLE that you are looking at. TOAD is just one of several dozens of tools.

    And a job in Oracle requires you to have knowledge of PL/SQL, or any of the several oracle applications, and expereince in them.

    Amy,

    Toad is no longer an Acronym. It was at the outset. It is now a patent and you have different versions of Toad.
    thx

    It is still an acronym for Tool for Oracle Application Developers even though the scope of the tool has expanded far beyond its origins. It has no patent but it is a registered trademark of Quest Software.

    David,

    Patent was a typo. I meant trademark thanks for correcting me. Here is the link to the history of toad.
