Connect Oracle 10g Developer with Oracle 8i database

Is it possible to connect Oracle 10g Developer with Oracle 8i database. If possible then plz guide how i can.

with Oracle Developer 10g 9.0.4 is no problem to connect to Oracle 8i.
with Oracle Developer 10g 10.1.2. you need the Patch for 8i, i think.

  • How to get all tables in oracle sql developer with MS SQLServer

    Hi All,
    I am using microsoft SQL server 2000. For displaying the tables and other stuff i am using oracle SQL developer tool. The problem is when i connect to sql developer with oracle database i can see all the tables in that database. But when i connect to MS SQL server database it is not showing all the tables in that database. I don't know why?.
    i tried doing the samething using another tool called Aqua Data Studio , there i can able to see all the tables in microsoft SQL server 2000.
    do you have any knowledge regarding this, why i am not getting all the tables in oracle sql developer when i connect to microsoft SQL server 2000.

    Same issue here. Haven't found the answer yet..

  • Does Oracle OLAP comes with Oracle Database 10g ?

    1.Does Oracle OLAP comes with Oracle Database 10g or do we need seperate software to have this ?.
    2.If I create a Cube with Analytic work space manager the cube is going to be stored in the Database ( meaning the in the table space where OLAP is Stored).
    3. What is the difference between Analtyic work space manager and discoverer For Olap.
    Help is higly appreciated ..
    Thanks, Prasad

    One thing to point out : The OLAP option is a costed database option, so while this is automatically installed and part of your database you do have to purchase additional licenses to use this feature. You will need to check with your Oracle account manager to see if you are actually licensed to use this feature.
    If you have existing 9i OLAP cubes these can be quickly and easily migrated to 10g OLAP and the documentation explains how to do this. However, there are many new features that are part of 10g OLAP that will improve the performance of your data model that will not be enabled as part of a migration process. Based on my experiences it would be quicker and easier (depending on the size of your existing 9i OLAP cubes) to consider rebuilding your data model using these new 10g features. You should be able to export all the dimensions to XML templates from 9i OLAP and import the templates into the 10g schema and reload your dimensions.
    For the cubes you will probably want to consider using partitioning, composites and compression to provide maximum flexibility and performance for your new data model. There is more information on these features within the OLAP documentation and in the many whitepapers and presentations on the OLAP home page on OTN.
    For moving data from SQL Server to 10g OLAP much depends on the nature of the data transfer. If it is a one-off bulk data load then you could consider using the normal MS command line tools to dump the data out and transfer it to Oracle. Alternatively, you could consider using Oracle Data Integrator to manage the extraction of the SQL Server data and the data load process into Oracle 10g relational tables. If you decide to use Data Integrator this will require additional licenses.
    If you can extract the data from SQL Server to flat files you can use Oracle Warehouse Builder (basic ETL is free as part of the 10g database license) to load that flat file data via external tables. Warehouse Builder can also be used to define your OLAP data model (think of Warehouse Builder as a more powerful version of Analytic Workspace Manager) and provides tools to load the data directly into your OLAP dimensions and cubes. You can get more information on managing OLAP data models with Warehouse Builder the Warehouse Builder home page on OTN.
    There are no facilities to modify Discoverer Viewer to add customisations. You can add company logos, modify certain colors and/or hide certain features but it is not possible to add additional features. You may want to consider using BI Beans to provide this type of environment. BI Beans is the development framework used to create Discoverer Viewer. You can create customised JSP pages that look identical to Discoverer Viewer pages with the added benefit of providing your own specific features. You can get more information on the BI Beans home page on OTN.

    Installing Oracle and Building the Database
    If you are going to be a professional DBA, you need to learn to
    1) read the documentation
    2) wean yourself from dependence on pictures and GUIs.
    3) read the documentation
    Learning how to look things up in the documentation is time well spent investing in your career.  To that end, you should drop everything else you are doing and do the following:
    Go to
    Locate the link for your Oracle product and version, and click on it.
    You are now at the entire documentation set for your selected Oracle product and version.
    Spend a few minutes just getting familiar with what is available here. Take special note of the "books" and "search" tabs. Under the "books" tab (for 10.x) or the "Master Book List" link (for 11.x) you will find the complete documentation library.
    Spend a few minutes just getting familiar with what kind of documentation is available there by simply browsing the titles under the "Books" tab.
    Open the Reference Manual and spend a few minutes looking through the table of contents to get familiar with what kind of information is available there.
    Do the same with the SQL Reference Manual.
    Do the same with the Utilities manual.
    You don't have to read the above in depth.  They are reference manuals.  Just get familiar with what is there to be referenced. Ninety percent of the questions asked on this forum can be answered in less than 5 minutes by simply searching one of the above manuals.
    Then set yourself a plan to dig deeper.
    - *Read a chapter a day from the Concepts Manual*.
    - Take a look in your alert log.  One of the first things listed at startup is the initialization parms with non-default values. Read up on each one of them (listed in your alert log) in the Reference Manual.
    - Take a look at your listener.ora, tnsnames.ora, and sqlnet.ora files. Go to the Network Administrators manual and read up on everything you see in those files.
    - *When you have finished reading the Concepts Manual, do it again*.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.

  • Does ORACLE functions work with Oracle Database 10G

    I am wondering if ORACLE functions work with Oracle Database 10G or is it mandatory to use OCI functions?
    Thanks in advance!

    I was able to run a simple query with ora_* functions using 10g on Windows.
    The Oracle OCI calls used by PHP's ora extension still exist in the Oracle 10g libraries
    But I cannot recommend this obsolete extension.

  • Oracle 11g compatibility with oracle 10g and 9i?

    Hi All
    I have some queries on 11g compatibility.
    Is oracle 11g client compatible with oracle 10g client which is already installed on desktop?
    If yes any changes to be done and where?
    Is oracle 11g compatible with oracle 10g/9i on the same server where 10g/9i are installed?

    Thanks Justin Thats right ...
    Problem elaboration is as follows
    We currently have an application which requires oracle 10g( client to connect to database from user desktops. As
    part of new application development the oracle 11g clients need to be installed on all the user deskotps.
    The complete application software along with oracle client 11g has to be roled out on these desktop as part of
    implementaion of new application besides the existing application(The application software is packaged along with oracle
    10g client).
    We would like to understand if there is any software provided by oracle using which we can switch between different oracle
    versions while accessing the respective applications simultaneously. Also are there any known bugs/issues in running
    oracle 10g client and oracle 11g client together on the same user desktops with different oracle homes?

  • Oracle 10g Lite with ADF/BC4J Application(Offline access in Mobile )

    Hi All,
    We have the following requirement from one of our client.
    Customer Company has R12 Apps instance(which is having 10g Database APPSDB). The users will come in the morning
    and connect to the System(NEWSYSTEM) to download their daily worksheet(resides in APPSDB) to their Mobile Devices
    (Windows XP - and then disconnect from the system. The download of data
    should start after login into their Mobile Device Custom Application So that only their worksheet will be downloaded
    to their Mobile Device DB.
    Then they will goto their fields and review their daily worksheet in the Mobile Device application(NEW APPLICATION)
    in offline mode. And update in the application with their findings, which should be stored in the Mobile Device database(MOBILEDB).
    In the evening the uses will come and connect to the system(NEWSYSTEM) and login into their Mobile Application and
    start the upload process, then the updated data from their Mobile Database will be uploaded into APPSDB via the NEWSYSTEM.
    I checked the links, and and I have
    got some understanding about Oracle 10g Lite. For the above requirement we are proposing the NEWSYSTEM as Oracle 10g Lite Server
    and the NEW APPLICATION as ADF/BC4J which can run in their Mobile Devices(work offline and then sync with DB).
    I have the following questions.
    1) The above proposing system is feasible?
    2) Can we develop the Mobile Application using ADF/BC4J and using that we would like to
    control the sync process from our custom application.(so that only their worksheet will come to their Mobile Device DB)
    3) If I want to have the above system,
    a) I should have Oracle 10g Lite server installed(im Unix or Windows)
    b) I should have Oracle 10g Lite client installed in a Windows PC/Laptop
    c) To get my custom application in My Mobile Device, first I have to deploy the application
    in Oracle 10g server using Oracle Mobile Server. Then I have to connect my Mobile Device to the Oracle 10g Lite server,
    and deploy the application in my Mobile Device using Oracle Mobile Manager.
    4) I would like to do a POC before start the project.
    What are all the installations I have to do in my Laptop.(Consider I am installing Oracle 10g Lite server/client, Mobile Manager in my Laptop)
    I am new to Oracle 10g Lite, correct me if any of my understanding is wrong.
    If you have any comments in the approach please add it.
    Thanks in advance.
    With Regards,

    1) The above proposing system is feasible?
    perfecly feasible, and actually a reasonably standard use of oracle lite
    2) Can we develop the Mobile Application using ADF/BC4J and using that we would like to
    control the sync process from our custom application.(so that only their worksheet will come to their Mobile Device DB)
    Actually two different questions here. The application code that runs on the client device can be written in any thing that will run on that type of device, and is capable of using the APIs to connect to the local database, and the other functionality like synchronisation. From the forum there look to be VB, C, java users out there (an i even believe if you wanted to, you could use forms). Main decision regarding the Platform for the application code development tends to be whatever you have the skills in.
    In terms of the sync process only downloading a particular users worksheet, this would be defined when you define the snapshots of the database tables you want to download, rather than the sync login process itself.
    For example - you have a table WORKSHEETS on the server that you want to download, it has a column EMP_NO which is the employee identifier. You would define the selection for the snapshot as
    select * from WORKSHEETS where EMP_NO=:emp_no (note the bind variable)
    when you then add users to the oracle lite application (actually the database), then you will have a parameter called EMP_NO to define with the employee number for that particular user, and this will be used automatically as the bind variable in the download.
    NOTE subsetting in this way does not need to be direct, for example things like
    select * from TASKS where id in (select task_id from user_tasks where emp_no=:emp_no) is perfectly valid
    NOTE when reading the forum and documentation, be careful of the word application. There are actually two different things to be developed, both normally called 'application'
    Within oracle lite you create an application with publication items, scripts, sequences etc. and then subscribe your users to this application. The application in this context is actually the database and synchronisation management ONLY (you can include files and code for download)
    The second application is your runtime code that has a user interface, functionality, processing and validation. This is written in some development platform, and accesses the database created above for select, insert, update etc.
    3) If I want to have the above system,
    a) I should have Oracle 10g Lite server installed(im Unix or Windows)
    YES this goes on the app server and installs a repository schema MOBILEADMIN within your database
    b) I should have Oracle 10g Lite client installed in a Windows PC/Laptop
    YES - once the server is set up, this is downloaded and set up by accessing the <server url>/webtogo/setup
    c) To get my custom application in My Mobile Device, first I have to deploy the application in Oracle 10g server using Oracle Mobile Server. Then I have to connect my Mobile Device to the Oracle 10g Lite server,
    and deploy the application in my Mobile Device using Oracle Mobile Manager.
    steps in outline are
    1) install server
    2) develop the oracle lite application (ie: database) and publish this to the mobile server (can use the development kit or java APIs for these two steps
    3) add a user with the relevant subsetting parameters
    4) set up oracle lite win32 client on the laptop from the server download
    5) synchronise using the msync utility on the client to create the databases and odbc entries
    6) develop your application code using the client database
    7) during development, then changes to database structure would be via changes and re-publish of the oracle lite application, followed by a sync to update the client database
    8) once all development is complete, the runtime application code can be bundled up into the oracle lite application if you want, and then the initial sync for live users will download the database and application code.
    4) I would like to do a POC before start the project.
    What are all the installations I have to do in my Laptop.(Consider I am installing Oracle 10g Lite server/client, Mobile Manager in my Laptop)
    You can set up a standalone server on the laptop, but better to do this on a development app server so you can use the main server development database as the data souce for the snapshot definitions (pretty easy install). there are conflicts if you try and put the oracle lite client and the mobile development kit on the same machine, but if you are familiar with java, the API development is fairly straightforward to use (i have developed applications in this, and i know only the basics of java) you do not need the MDK
    Basic for a POC i would say is to
    1) set up mobile server on development
    2) define a simple oracle ite application on two server tables. one has select * from table, and the other has select * from table where .... including bind variable. at this stage use complete refresh as the mode for simplicity
    3) publish the application, create user and define the subsetting variable
    4) set up mobile client and synchronise user. use the msql utility to interrogate the database and check the content, and do some updates 9standards SQL syntax)
    5) create simple appliaction code to conect to and read the database on the client
    6) do a sync after the updates above and check they appear in the server
    The above should be reasonably quick and proves
    a) ability to define the data you want to be sent to the users
    b) ability to create an app to manage the database running on the client device in you preferred software platform
    c) data download and upload
    after this basic POC, you can extend into defining fast refreshes to improve the efficiency of the sync process, managing the MGP process, developing a more comprehensive database and application etc. If you have complex joins between server table, you may also want to look at creating views to denormalise data and use these as the basis for the snapshots

  • Regarding Oracle 10G Developer Suite On Oracle 9i R2

    Actually i am new to oracle *9i R2* because i worked on Oracle 7 in that i was getting by default forms and reports will be installed. after inquiring with my friends they said that in oracle *9i R2* there wont be forms and reports installed for that you have to install Oracle 10G Developer Suite. but i am having a doubt that weather both can be installed on the same machine in the same operating system.

    Yes we can use 2 databases on same machine on same operating system but u need to use different Oracle Homes for each version. But u can't ran Form 10g wid Oracle 9i database. You need to use only 10G forms Reports wid 10G Database.

  • Compliance of Oracle 10g R2 with Windows XP SP2

    Hello everybody
    I am representing my company for making a decision of deploying appropriate versions for Oracle and Windows.
    The vendor suggested Oracle 9 on Windows Server 2003, whereas we opted for deploying Oracle 10g R2 with Windows XP SP2.
    According to the vendor
    XP is not a true 'server' product and therefore does not provide many server functions and may have restrictions on numbers of users that can connect.
    If the vendor's notion is correct, would anyone explain the limitations/restrictions of our solution.

    One of the first problems that you will encounter, inbound connections limit in Windows XP:
    Memory allocations are handled differently between Windows 2003 and XP (paged pool, non-paged pool, file system caching, etc.):
    In some cases the memory allocation differences can cause XP to display errors indicating "unable to allocate memory from the paged pool" or the non-paged pool, when Windows 2003 would otherwise continue functioning without problem. Windows 2003 offers a registry change to work around this problem:
    Microsoft will stop making Windows XP available for resale in June 2008, except on extremely light-weight computers, and update support will end before update support ends for Windows 2003.
    There are typically differences in the hardware that ships with a computer loaded with Windows XP and one that ships with Windows 2003. You will have a hard time finding a computer with Windows XP that ships with redundant power supplies, dual backplanes, SCSI RAID 10 support, dual network interfaces, built-in system/diagnostics, etc.
    While Windows 2003 is the server equivalent of Windows XP, there are many features in Windows 2003 that are not available in Windows XP. XP is designed to be rebooted frequently (shut down every night, or reboot once a week or once a month) and is geared toward foreground application performance. Windows Server 2003 is designed to be rebooted infrequently (apply security updates, recover from rare system fatal bugs) and is geared toward providing good background application performance (the Oracle database instance would be a background application).
    If you are unfamilar with Windows Server 2003, take a look at the books "Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Administrator's Companion" by Microsoft Press and "Mastering Windows Server 2003" by Sybex. Compare what you find in those books with what you might find in Microsoft's Windows XP Resource Kit book.

  • Oracle Discoverer 9i with 11g R2 Database

    Hi everyone,
    Currently our company is still using Oracle Discoverer 9i with Oracle 10g. It is working very fine without any problem. My question is, if we were to upgrade the Database from 10g to 11g R2, is it "technically" possible to continue using Oracle Discoverer 9i? We understands that Oracle Discoverer 9i is de-supported product but actually it is working fine with our current Database 10g.
    If Oracle 11g R2 can be connected to Oracle Discoverer 9i, we would very much prefer to continue using Oracle Discoverer 9i even though it is de-supported.
    Appreciate if someone can enlighten us.
    Thanks and rgds,

    Dear Srini,
    Thank you very much for the advise. However, the problem here is my company will not upgrade to 11g if Discoverer 9i is not working. This is because they find so troublesome to re-create all the existing reports which is more than thousands of report...;-(.
    Really appreciate the feedback from someone who has experience using oracle Discoverer 9i with 11gR2.
    Thanks and rgds,

  • Unable to run oracle 10g developer suite

    I have installed both on oracle 10g express and oracle 10g developer suite on my laptop running XP home edition. The database is running , but I can not get form developer to run. The error message as "ORA-12154-TNS:could not resolve service name"
    My questions are: 1) does 10g developer suite have to run as client-server platform? Can it be stand-alone? 2) or, it is because XP Home edition? 3) Can 10g developer run on Express edition?

    but I can
    not get form developer to run. The error message as
    "ORA-12154-TNS:could not resolve service name"Is the form builder software opening (appearing).
    Are you able to connect through XE's SQL Command?
    The error you are getting is because forms cannot connect to the database, and not because it is not running.
    You need to configure the tnsnames.ora file found unde
    you can either configure it manually or by using the Net Configuration Assistant found under Start -> My programs ->%oracle_home% -> Oracle configuration and migration Assist.
    Manual:<Service_name> =
        (ADDRESS_LIST =
          (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = <hostname> or localhost)(PORT = 1521))
        (CONNECT_DATA =
          (SERVICE_NAME = <sid_name>)
      )If You have XE installed your connection identifier would probably must look like something like this. you can just copy paste it.
    XE =
        (ADDRESS_LIST =
          (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = localhost)(PORT = 1521))
        (CONNECT_DATA =
          (SERVICE_NAME = XE)
      )The port number 1521 is the default, if you changed it during installation then use the port number you have specified during installation.
    1) Orcale Developer suite 9i and above are for web deployment and not client server.
    2) what you mean by standalone? do the configuratin above and it should work.
    3) Oracle products are not certified for windows home edition (but I have seen them working) but keep in minde that you will face many problems since the OS is not supported one.
