We've updated some of our databases to 12c recently, at the same time I was working on an issue in some of the PL/SQL packages that I've built and running some tests on these. To my surprise when I tried to run my test PL/SQL procedure, SQL Developer was not showing in its run dialog.

I tried to see if the same procedure would execute by writing an anonymous PL/SQL block and it did.

This is what SQL Developer (4.0.2) was showing me...The package clearly defines a procedure, but it is not visible in the run dialog box, instead SQL Developer is reporting an empty package definition (no public members).

I checked the DB version and the results were 12.1.0.2.0.

Thinking this is a 12c related problem, I connected to a different database that has not been upgraded, still at 11gR2 level, lo and behold, my procedure was visible in the run dialogue again. Definitely a 12c related issue then.

The DBA suggested that I try SQL Developer 4.1 Early Adopter to see if that helps. It did! Looks like SQL Developer 4.0.x is not fully compatible with 12.1.0.2 version of the database.

The fixed bug list confirms this...

Looking deeper into the bug it only seems to affect 12.1.0.2.0 database version, if you are on 12.1.0.1.0, this problem does not show up.

So there you go, if you got the latest DB version, the latest SQL Developer fixes this little problem!
