Creating A New Oracle Database And Sql Developer

I'm a newbie to Oracle and and a not so newbie to Sql Server and Visual Studio.
I am trying to learn Oracle on my local machine. I want to create a new Oracle Database and start learning from there.
I have downloaded sql developer, the data modeler, and the Oracle Client. Could someone please provide some guidance on how to create a Oracle Database?
From the responses, it appears that none of the items I mentioned actually creates a database. Sql Server provides a free download, also a developer version for a minimal fee. What specific Oracle product would be best to provide this type of service?

Edited by: user8948230 on Jan 7, 2010 9:50 AMIn addition to downloading and installing the database software to create a database, might I also suggest you start getting familiar with the documentation.
Learning where 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 Drill down to your 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 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.
After you have familiarized yourself with what is available, read the "2-Day DBA" manual to help get you started.
Then set yourself a plan to dig deeper.
- Read a chapter a day from the Concepts Manual.
- Look in your alert log and find all the non-default initialization parms listed at instance startup. Then read up on each one of them 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.

  • Installing Oracle Database and SQL Developer

    Hi, I was looking for some help/advice in regards to installing an Oracle Database and SQL Developer onto a Windows 7 32bit machine. I have been asked to create a database to store data that I create through reports in Excel so I am required to create a local database but not sure how to go about doing this. Also not sure if I install the Express Edition or Oracle Database 11g R2. If somebody could please advise on how I can get this started or even any links/tutorials that would guide me in how to get this installed with a localhost.
    Thanks in advanc.

    Thanks guys, I have managed to install Oracle 11gR2 and I have setup a database using the dbca tool and I can connect to my new database. One thing that I have noticed is that when i look into my tables in sql developer i see loads of different tables i.e. def$_, logmnr_, etc and I am not sure why this is as I expected an empty tablespace.
    Thanks btw for all your help.
    One of the key principles of relational databases is that they use their own facilities to manage themselves.  That means the database management system uses the database to manage data about the database using exactly the same facilities (tablespaces, tables, user accounts, procedures, etc) that an application uses to keep data for the application. See "data dictionary"   So there is no such thing as a completely empty database.
    As said by others, you do NOT want to be creating your own tables under oracle's schemas (users) or in oracle's own tablespaces (esp. SYSTEM and SYSAUX).  Create your own user account/schema.  Create your own tablespace. Make that tablespace the default for that user.

  • Create a new oracle database from OCI or OCCI client

    How can we create a new oracle database from OCI or OCCI client?
    i am using the oracle 11gR2
    Thanks in Advance,
    Sreekanth Polaka

    Though I have not tried creating a database, try if its doable.
    You can use OCI to perform SYSDBA operations.
    So connect as OCI_SYSDBA and try executing the entire create database command.

    satish.pWith the caveat (as already pointed out by Srini in this thread) that no Oracle product has ever been certified on any "home" edition of any version of Oracle ...
    If I were looking to download any product, I'd start by going to that company's web site (like, and look for a tab or link called "download". I'll bet if you did that, you'd find all sorts of goodies.
    But, again, since you are dealing with a "home" edition of Windows, you'll need to start by installing a virtual machine product -- VM Ware's "VMworkstation" or "VMplayer", or Oracle's VirtualBox. Then you can create a virtual machine running a supported OS. Oracle's own Linux (derived from Red Hat Linux) is also free.

  • Creating a new Oracle Database using 10G Grid Control

    Is it possible to create a new database using the 10g Grid COntrol.

    The way to create a database with EM, is by using Provisioning procedures. For instance with the Oracle Clusterware / RAC Provisioning For UNIX, you can provisioning Clusterware, ASM + ASM instance creation and DB Software. Then by provisoning you would create a database. There are also procedures to extend a cluster.
    So, provisoning is the way to go!

  • Generating hourly report from oracle database using sql developer .Help

    I am working on SQL Developer 1.5.1, i need to prepare hourly record of the activity on the database, for that i have a sql query that gives me the report as per selected columns on hourly basis.I need to prepare 24 reports a day.
    Each time i have to go to the query , change the date as per hours like form 22:06:2011 10:00:00 to 22:06:2011 11:00:00 and get the report and export it in excel.
    I want to automate the script so that whenever i run the script , it just asks me the date and runs the script 24 times and fetch me the hourly report of whole day.
    the query syntax is something like this
    And req date between to-date( 22:06:2011 10:00:00) And to-date(22:06:2011 11:00:00)
    Order by 7,1,2,3,4,5
    Is there any possibility that i can automate the script to automatically change the hour itself and generate a report in excel 24 times?please share if you have any idea on this.
    Looking forward for a response.

    This gives you data for the whole day and the first column tells you which hour data it is,
    SELECT 'HOUR' || TO_CHAR ( req_date, 'HH24') AS hour_num,
      FROM table_name
    WHERE TRUNC (req_date) = TO_DATE ( '22/06/2011', 'DD/MM/YYYY')G.

  • Unable to establish connection to oracle database using sql developer

    hi guys,
    i tried to connect to the oracle database using the sql developer, but it fails. it replies the following message:
    Status: Failure -Test failed: Io exception: The Network Adapter could not establish the connection
    what should i do? any help

    Please provide a little more information:
    1) SQLDeveloper version.
    2) Database Version.
    3) Database location (same machine or on the network).
    4) Connection method (basic,TNS).
    5) Connection type (Thin,Thick/OCI).
    Usually the first thing to check is if you have correctly entered the right information for your database connection, then if everything seems to be OK the database itself should be checked for potential problems.

  • Create new oracle database with JAVA

    I would appreciated it if you could help me to solve a problem that i have.
    I am trying to create a new oracle database by a JAVA 1.4.2 application. I am using the scripts that Oracle 10.g supplies during the creation of a new database from the server (Generate Database Creation Scripts) with the appropriate changes, generated by a java application. Unfortunately, i am unable to connect with the database and the listener. Is there any other way to create a new database by java and how can i solve my current problem with the oracle scripts?
    Thank you.

    A) To create a new schema, you need to be connected as a user that has create schema privilege, or as tyhe user who is to own the schema (remembering that the user has appropriate create privs, as seen in the GRANT command in the SQL Reference manual). Not an issue at all, I think, if you coordinate this with your DBA. Discussed very well in the Administrator's manual.
    B) Alternately, you could create a complete copy of the schema, including all desired objects (tables, views, etc.) in a separate database and simply export the user and schema. Then simply invoke the OS-based import command (imp) to load that entire thing into the target database.
    C) To create a new database, there are 3 simple steps ...
    1) create the appropriate initialization parameter file
    the init{sid}.ora file should be placed in the $ORACLE_HOME/dbs or %ORACLE_HOME%\database directory. (I recommend you do not attempt to create the spfile.) Of critical interest will be setting the block size information, the control file parameters, and using the appropriate memory management parameters, based on the version of the software you will be using to create the database instance.
    2) start an empty instance, pointing to the parameter file
    This will be an OS specific call, and will require that you have the correct OS environment set up as well as access to the ORACLE_HOME which will provide the software that you will invoke. In *nix you will need to call the sqlplus command with sysdba provs and in Windows you will need to call oradim to initialize this as a service.
    3) run the SQL create database command
    You might want to use the dbca to create a template of the create database command, or look in the SQL Reference manual for the variations on the command. Of critical interest will be initializing the redo logs as well as the system, sysaux (if needed), temp and undo tablespaces after which you can set up the regular tablespaces, users and schemas. I highly recommend that you have redundant copies of the control files on separate drives.
    You may want to review the online Concepts manual and the Adminstration Guide for some of the specifics to your needs, but I think I've covered the basics.
    Remember that ideally you will only have one database instantiated on any given server as the memory and CPU overhead of each instance is significant.
    Good luck.

  • DB2 8.1 to Oracle 11g with SQL Developer 3.0

    I started migrating my DB2 8.1 to Oracle 11g, with SQL Developer 3.0
    Basically, I need to migrate TABLES.
    I followed these steps:
    1) I created a new Oracle database, tablespaces, users, etc.
    2) Then, I created both (DB2 and Oracle) connections into SQL Developer 3.0. All works fine.
    3) I start capturing one table with the "Copy to Oracle" feature. Done with no errors.
    But when I compare the table structure, I see the following problems in Oracle:
    a) All fields are NULLABLE = YES. SQL Developer show this field property correctly in DB2: NULLABLE = NO, but not migrated the same!
    SOLUTION: All I want is that SQL Developer simply migrating the same value who I have in the DB2. But how?
    b) In DB2 I have one field property called COLUM DEFAULT. In Oracle this property is called DATA_DEFAULT. The SQL Developer show this field property correctly for the DB2 tables (for example: 0.0, ' ', etc), but don't migrated the same value! All fields are configured to DATA_DEFAULT = NULL.
    SOLUTION: I think this occurs because NULLABLE is migrated with the value YES. Well, all I need is the same above...
    NOTE: I tested the SWISSQL DATA MIGRATION software, and it works fine. All tables, field properties and data are migrated sucessfull. But this program is trial version!
    Well, I think all of this are BUGS into SQL Developer.
    Please, anyone to help me?

    Welcome to the forum!
    I just did right click in the procedure body and found [Debug, Compile for Debug, Compile, Run].
    You listed a bunch of things but you didn't say what steps you actually performed and what the result was.
    Did you 'Compile'the procedure? until you compile the procedure you can't debug it.
    I just created a new procedure and when I select the body it displays in the 'Code' window on the right. But the 'Debug' icon is not enabled because the procedure was not compiled for debug.
    When I compile it for debug the 'Debug' icon is now enabled.

  • Exchange 2010 - Create a new Mailbox Database

    Hello all and thanks in advance for your time and expertise.
    Here's my scenario:
    In my ORG we have one exchange server.  The hard drive space on this server was quite low so we added two more drives which are independent and in their own Raid Configuration from the drives that were already installed.  In other words, the current
    mailbox database is housed on drives with a total storage capacity of 837GB. 
    We recently added two more drives, each 2TB, and configured them in a RAID1. 
    I'm going to create a new Mailbox Database on the 2TB drives and move over some mailboxes to balance out the storage. 
    Question one:  When we move some of the mailboxes over to the new database - will this free up space on the existing database or do we have to reclaim it such as with an offline degrag.
    Question two:  When I create the new mailbox database and I'm prompted to Enter the new file locations for the database (database path and log folder path) - do I just change the paths to the new drive letter path such as G:
    We're eventually going to Office365 (hopefully sooner rather than later) but I just want to make sure I handle this process correctly. Your input here is greatly appreciated.

    Your databse size is 650 GB.  As per my experience , it would not take more than 14 hours for total mailbox movement.
    You will be creating new database of 2 TB , you have already allocated 2 Tb drive to exchange server.
    If you are dividing drive into 2 or four part and creating that much databse, it will be helpful for maintence activity in future.
    It is recommended that you move mailbox during off bussiness hours, it will fasten the movment,as there will be no load on exchange server . You can do it on daily basis Or you can do it on weekend .
    You need to take care of logs generated during movment, are you going to  use seperate log drive for databse, or combine with database drive. If you are moving all mailbox to one database, It will genrate same size of logs file as of total mailboxes
    size (650 GB). You neeed to handle it properly. Enable circular logging on database, after movment ,you can disable it.
    Moreover, if you will create move request of all mailboxes, exchange will process nly 50 request, rest will be in queue state.
    Regarding public folders, I understand there is no seperate disk for public folders, if you planning to delete old dtabse and free up disk space, you will have to move this public folders database to new disk also.
    Would recommend that you take advice  from other expert in this forum, before implementation.

  • Where can I find more OBE like the one for Database xE and SQL Developer?

    I tried to post on the OBE forum but it is expired.
    I found the downloadable OBE, or tutorial, very good resources for me to learn Oracle, like the one for XE and SQL developer, which you can download, not just read online, and see as many times as you can, with flash stuffs inside,
    Will you make more this kind of OBE?
    Where can I find them?

    Hi Hans,
    I know the above address you offered but those are
    not downloadble.So do what I do .... CTRL-S (save page)
    As an Oracle trainer, I consider the OBEs to be very important. I doubt that Oracle will get rid of them.
    However, it takes time to make them. I suspect that they are created when a new feature needs to be demonstrated and the product management has the resources available.
    I just wish they would make the original set from Oracle8i available. They provided some very important basics which have long since hit the archive pile.
    I'm sure that some of the ACEs would be happy to upgrade them to Oracle10g/11g level. I know I would be willing to contribute to that effort.

  • Do i have to pay exam center fee to an authorized oracle exam center(new horizon) in Bangladesh rather than the exam fee of Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals I ?

    Do i have to pay exam center fee to an authorized oracle exam center(new horizon) in Bangladesh rather than the exam fee of Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals I ?

    I agree with Matthew that I cannot be sure exactly what you are asking.
    Generally i regard it as less risk to yourself to schedule and pay Pearson Vue directly.
    However if you contact the exam center and get them to schedule for you my understanding is you pay them. Unfortunately there is risk of the exam center overcharging you (99%++ of most most worldwide wont).
    The only reasons for doing this I can think of is (there may be more) :-
    - is if you do not have credit/debit cards that Pearson Vue would accept.
    - The center will accept turn up and schedule and your transport to the exam center might be unreliable and you are worried you might miss the appointment and you are hoping to pay on arrival (some will not accept this).

  • Using TOAD and SQL Developer to compare db objects in schemas in databases

    Hi All,
    My primary objective was to compare objects in schemas in two different databases and find out the differences,
    Execute DDL's in the database where objects are missing and syn schemas in two different databases.
    So I need to compare schemas in databases. Which tool would be helpful and will be user friendly to make a comparison of database objects existing in schemas in two different databases.
    I'd like to see if I can get a list of pro and cons between Toad and SQL Developer for comparing schemas pros and cons.
    Could you please also help me on navigation in SQL Developer to compare schemas.
    Connect to Source
    Connect to Target
    Compare schemas with different object types
    Find out differences
    Generate DDL's for the missing objects or for the objects in difference report
    Run them in missing instace(Source/Target)
    Make sure both are in sync.
    Thanks All

    Most dba type tools have this kind of functionality - personally i use plsqldeveloper but this is very similar to most other tools on the market. SQL Developer seems to rely on you needing the change management pack licence which you likely dont have and would be quite a large cost to roll out.
    I'd compare plsqldeveloper/toad/sqlnavigator etc and maybe the tools from redgate which look pretty good though i haven't used them.

  • Book on oracle and SQL development

    Can you give me a recommendation for a book to purchase that gives an overview of SQL and Oracle SQL.
    We are migrating from MS server 2000 to 10g. We will then be using the database for our PeopleSoft Enterprise applications, so we wont need PL/SQL, however in the future we might look at J2EE connectivity and the ADF as part of the Fusion project to merge all applications.
    I am looking at learning SQL, not DBA topics, and improving my general SQL skills and knowledge as we will be executing SQL statements direct to the database.
    One book that seems to match best so far is Mastering SQL 2nd edition by OReilly ISBN0596006322 but it has mixed reviews.
    Any suggestions?

    I like Oracle Database 10g SQL (Osborne ORACLE Press Series ISBN: 0072229810). Others seems to like it as well if you check out the user ratings on Amazon. Here is their brief description:
