DBMS output is not only used for debugging, but for communication back to the user as well, providing error messages and such. Right now, when a PL/SQL procedure call generates DBMS output, you have to manually remember to check the DBMS Output window to see whether there is a message there or not. We have developers constantly forgetting to do that. As a result, procedures they are calling are failing and reporting errors and they don’t even know it.
Is there a way to have DBMS output show up automatically when it is picked up, instead of putting the burden on the user to remember to check the right window? In DBArtisan, DBMS output was included in the script output/errors tab to which you were always transferred upon query/script execution, so there was one place to see all results and you always saw it every time. Can anything similar be done in Toad?
