During maintenance, I had to disable all constraints of a table. I knew that Oracle SQL Developer (I really like it even though it is a developer tool and not aimed at Database Administrators) had built-in functions to do this, but since I could only access the database machine via SSH, I had to do it in SQL*Plus.
Because of its minimalistic interface and blazing speed, I am a big fan of Google Chrome. I am using the Developer channel version to get early access to the latest features such as the integrated PDF viewer or GPU acceleration. You can find more information on how to install this version here.
I keep this post mainly for my own reference, since I needed to do this multiple times already.
Edit the file sqldeveloper.conf in the
bin/ directory of your SQL Developer installation and add the following lines to change the language to English:
AddVMOption -Duser.language=en AddVMOption -Duser.country=US
