Hi folks, if you use SQL Developer for your database tasks, you have probably experienced the annoying connection management issue where after the connection times out, the connection menu hangs when you try to disconnect or reconnect to the database. After scouring the web and forums for days, it seemed like no one had a solid solution. Therefore, I took some time to look into SQL Developer's connection mechanism and created the Keep-Alive extension. 

Below are the screenshots of what the extension would look like after being loaded into your SQL Developer instance.

Features

- Each connection could have its own keep alive interval.
- Keep alive intervals are saved and retained.
- On keep alive activation, interval is displayed on the message box.
