Oracle Database Design Courses?

Hi,
I was searching around the Oracle website looking for
some Database Design courses, couldn't find anything.
Anyone know if this type of course is available, if not
through Oracle then with some other company?
TIA,
Rick.

Jens I found a few good links in there...I was trying to
find if there was a certification track offered in
DB Design? I see a lot of instructor led classes most
of them only 2-3 days long.

    If you Google "database design document" you'll see that there are many templates available. I've never used any such document, and I think you'll be hard pressed to find one that fits your business needs exactly (assuming there are business needs behind your request).
    1. Hardware & software specifications.
    2. Database Sizing/ estimate.I would suggest you analyze existing workloads and base your estimates on that. If there is no existing workload you'll have to estimate one based on how many users you estimate will use the solution, or some other clever estimation method.
    3. Schema Design This is a matter of translating business/application requirements to what needs to be stored in the relational database, and creating a data model based upon that. Every model will be different.
    4. Data transformations/ feedsYou could simply document each transformation/feed and purpose.

  • Oracle database design

    Hi,
    I am designing a database and want to design it based on 3NF. I have a table and few columns that are not a one to many relation ship. Can I design it in such a way those columns that are not a child to be in few seperate tables, with one to one relationship? Example: My main table is a program table, and I hvae few columns that are Analysis DEsc, Analysis Date and Analysis BY. I want to keep those columns in a seperate table. Please let me know how to design this?
    Thanks for your time and help.

    LOBs are always stored at separate locations outside the table structure. The table itself holds just a reference (filepointer?) to this location.
    >
    Always? No - that is not correct.
    The default storage for LOBs is inline. Only LOBs larger than ~4000 bytes are stored out-of-line unless you specify a storage clause.
    Each lob locator is about 80+ bytes and 80 bytes can be a substantial percentage of the average row length. For rows of length 400 with a lob locator you can only store fewer than 20 rows in an 8k block. Assuming you could actually store 20 rows per block then without the locator the length is 320 (20% less) so for every 5 rows you have room for a new row so could store 24 rows per block. That is 16% greater rows per block and fewer blocks that need to be manipulated to get the data you really want.
    For Data Warehouse applications in particular 16% is huge savings since LOB data access is only a small fraction of the data accessed. So for those applications it is common to separate the lobs completely, almost treating them as dimension columns, and tie them to the main (fact) table by the primary key.
    Even for OLTP applications LOB manipulation is often asychronous with the manipulation of the other data so it is relatively easy to create an extra table and not even have to deal with it for the main processing and queries.
    See the SecureFiles and Large Objects Developer's Guide
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/appdev.111/b28393/adlob_tables.htm
    >
    Inline and Out-of-Line LOB Storage
    LOB columns store locators that reference the location of the actual LOB value. Depending on the column properties you specify when you create the table, and depending the size of the LOB, actual LOB values are stored either in the table row (inline) or outside of the table row (out-of-line).
    LOB values are stored out-of-line when any of the following situations apply:
    If you explicitly specify DISABLE STORAGE IN ROW for the LOB storage clause when you create the table.
    If the size of the LOB is greater than approximately 4000 bytes (4000 minus system control information), regardless of the LOB storage properties for the column.
    If you update a LOB that is stored out-of-line and the resulting LOB is less than approximately 4000 bytes, it is still stored out-of-line.
    LOB values are stored inline when any of the following conditions apply:
    When the size of the LOB stored in the given row is small, approximately 4000 bytes or less, and you either explicitly specify ENABLE STORAGE IN ROW or the LOB storage clause when you create the table, or when you do not specify this parameter (which is the default).
    When the LOB value is NULL (regardless of the LOB storage properties for the column).
    Using the default LOB storage properties (inline storage) can allow for better database performance; it avoids the overhead of creating and managing out-of-line storage for smaller LOB values. If LOB values stored in your database are frequently small in size, then using inline storage is recommended.

  • Data Warehouse Oracle Database design approach

    Our Project has a huge Fact (F1) with 38 GB data (75 Millions records)
    associated with three other dimensions
    D1 (with 7 million records)
    D2 (with 0.5 million records)
    D3 (with o.3 M records
    On these dimensions, we have few discrete valued attributes on which analysis are done (like Status, Type, Type Group, Flags)
    We also have Complete refresh Materialized view on this fact table aggregate on this attributes.
    We have two design options... not able to determine which would be more sufficient. Due to huge volume, do not have space to simulate the same
    Option 1)
    Break these dimensions into mini- dimension (demographic dimension), which hold these discrete valued attributes
    number of records on these mini-dimension
    D1 -mini-dimension: approx 500 records
    D2 -mini-dimension: approx 3000 records
    D3 -mini-dimension: approx 3000 records
    Link these mini-dimension directly to the FACT tables with its integer surrogate key.
    Have bitmap index join between these mini-dimensions & fact
    Option 2)
    Migrate all these varchar fields (attributes) from dimensions and stamp them on all the fact records.
    Bitmap index on each fields on the fact tables
    Which of the two options is efficient on ETL and most importantly on reports?
    Some points
    Option 2 will increase the avg row length of the Fact table and hence the increase in the size of the fact
    Would impact ETL Upsert process (about 2 million recordS upsert DML) ... vARCHAR UPDATES SLOWER COMPARED TO INTEGER
    MV build using varchar fields will take longer compared to Integer (Surrogate key) Group by columns
    Debate is on the report performance
    Option 2 will avoid additional joins on the mini-dimension. So, someone of us think Option 2 will more efficient
    Few of us have an opinion that with higher avg row length and huge volume with these additional varchar fields, I/O cost would increase.
    But the same time, because we do not have chained rows on the fact table, they should not be much performance degradation (rather no degradation)
    could someone help solve the debate?

    Do you help solve the debate?What do the results of your actual benchmark test show?

  • Database design steps

    Hi all,
    I am new to learn the oracle database design. Please anyone can give me the steps/procedure that we can easily to design the new oracle database.?
    regards,
    samurai

    Are you referring to physical database design (disk layouts, file locations etc.) or logical database design (schema, table structures, indexes etc.)?
    Based on your requirement, the answer will change.
    But simply stated, it would be better if you could take a course from local universities or colleges which have database design as part of IT curriculum. It is not possible to summarize database design in a few lines.

  • Should I learn database design and development skills?

    Hi everyone,
    I am a junior Oracle with 3 years experience. I have got Oracle 10g and 11g OCP certifications.
    I know how to install, configure,monitor and maintain databases, but I don't know hot to design and develop databases.
    I know that employers demand of us more and more. Database design and development skills are the basic requirements.
    Should I start to learn database design courses?
    If yes, please recommend me the books(or Oracle Docs) of Getting Started.
    Thank you very much

    Google "data normalization" and study up on 1st, 2d, and 3d Normal Form.
    Go through the Oracle docs and get very familiar with the different data type (varchar, number, date, etc)
    Read the Tom Kyte Books.
    Programmers keep wanting to re-invent what the database already does, and treat the database as a data dump. As a result, I'd focus on analysis and design issues before approaching books on programming technology. (and I was an applications programmer/analyst for about 15 years before transitioning to DBA)

  • The course I did to gain OCP certification in Oracle Database 11g does not appear on the courses submission list on the website of pearson vue.

    The course I did to gain OCP certification in Oracle Database 11g does not appear on the courses submission list on the website of pearson vue, I sent an email to [email protected] from < email address deleted by moderator >, without an answer in 7 days since 01/28/2015, the email is below, the title of my course is in Portuguese.  What should I do in this case ?
    Dear Oracle.
    I am sending this email because recently I passed in the exam 1Z0-053 Oracle Database 11g: Administration II, which is the last examination necessary to acquire the OCP Certification. However, in the path to the certification I need to prove that I participated in an Oracle Official Training.
    Searching for the course on the pearson vue site, I have not found the course name on the list. So I am sending this email with the course information required for certification. I attended to the course in college FIAP (http://www.fiap.com.br/en/conheca-a-fiap/parcerias-estrategicas/), in the city of São Paulo, Brazil, from March/2010 to March/2011. Accessing the link above is possible to verify that the educational institution is an Oracle Partner. The title that I got was "Graduate in Oracle Database Management".
    In this email I attached a copy of the FIAP Certified Course (front.jpg certificate, certificate back.jpg). I’m also sending the data from my profile in the pearson vue site (Pearson VUE - My profile.pdf), and my scores in the exams for OCP certification (1Z0-051.pdf, 1Z0-052.pdf, 1Z0-053.pdf ).
    If you need any further information just let me know and I will provide.
    Please acknowledge this information and grant me the OCP certification (Oracle Database 11g Administrator Certified Professional).
    Regards.
    Italo Moisés dos Santos.
    Oracle Testing ID:  < deleted by moderator >

    Sorry, I expressed myself badly.
    When I access http://www.pearsonvue.com/oracle/course/ and start submission process  of the course, in the first step “Select the track for which you have completed a certification requirement” I selected the option “Oracle Database 11g Administrator OCP”, in the second step I selected “ILT = Instructor Led Training”,  but when I got on the third step “Which course or requirement did you complete?”  I have to choose the course name that I did, the course name that I did does not appears in that list, so I do not know which one to select, even having at the end of the form the option “Other ...(Course or requirement is not shown above. Please enter title below.)” the course name I did is in Portuguese/Brazil, the name is “MBA em gestão de banco de dados oracle” in Portuguese, which in English would look like "Graduate in Oracle Database Management".
    I sent an email to [email protected] containing the information that I found necessary to obtain certification.
    But if I have to do the process in the pearson vue site, should I put the course name in Portuguese or in English ?
    Only the email I sent is not enough ?
    Thanks for the help, and sorry for my english !

  • Oracle database normalisation and logical design documnetation

    Hi ,
    Am a begginer on DB design , can anyone help me find Oracle database normalisation and logical design documnetation for reference.
    Thanks,
    Swaroop

    Database logical design and normalization are typically DBMS (Database Management System) independent. Meaning that you could do a whole LOGICAL design without regards to the platform in which it will be based. There are many, many resources on the internet if you search for them. if you used terms like "logical database design", or "database normalization" on Google or your search engine of choice I imagine you'll come up with many results.
    When it comes to the actual physical design of the database (as in tablespaces, datafiles, indexes, etc) I would first consult the "Oracle Concepts Guide", and then something like the "Application Developer's Guide." This documentation is all available at:
    http://otn.oracle.com
    Hope this helps!

  • What are the BEST books for Oracle database architect/designer?

    What concrete books would you recommend for OLTP database developer (to start from the scratch, starting from data sources analysis, logical and physical data modeling, indexes, tuning, maintaining). It doesn't have to be a book particulary for Oracle but suitable for it..
    I don't mean books DBA's or overall Oracle handbooks, also not for OLAP.
    Thanks!

    For learning how to use Oracle database effectively, i would say
    Tom Kyte's both books:
    Effective Oracle by design
    & Expert Oracle Database Architecture
    Jonathan Lewis's
    Practical Oracle 8i
    They tell you all the stuff: what/how to do something? and most importantly what/how not to do ?
    And their writing style is just awesome :)

  • Workflow Design in Oracle Database

    Hi Pals,
    Problem : Designing a Vendor Management Application which will keep track of all the request created, approved, rejected or in between of any business process.
    Front end: Java
    Backend : Oracle
    I am new to Database Design so forgive my technical writing.
    Client want business logic on database end only.
    Here is an example :
    1. New Request for IT enabled services created in application.
    2. This Request should go to concerned department such as Finance, Sourcing, Legal etc.
    3. We have to keep track of every activity (Modify, Approved, Rejected or cancelled) done by each department.
    4. Each Request will go to different departmet for approval based on type such as Software Services, Hardware, Software & Maintenence.
    5. At each phase of request, We have to notify requestor + approver about the status of request by Email (Also from Backend).
    6. We also have to maintain audit trail for some attributes for each phase of request in database.
    Could you please suggest any idea how we can implement such workflow in database ?
    Any link or any suggestion is welcomed..
    Many Thanks in advance
    Kamal

    Hi Sybrand Bakker,
    First of all.. Thanks a lot for replying.
    It's perfectly make sense that answer to my question will take hours. I don't want anybody to do such large amount of work without being paid. That's the reason I clearly mentioned that any link or suggestion is welcomed...
    Here is what we are trying to implement just for information"
    1. Workflow Table : for Each Type of workflows such as Software Services, software & hardware etc.
    2. Workflow_Task Table : Each Workflow can have multiple tasks assigned and in particular order in this table.
    3. Request_Info Table : We will check the type of request, then according to workflow tables, we will assign a set of tasks to that request in say request_process_tasks table.
    4. Request_Contract : For keep a track of record of activites taking place on request, we can keep records in Request_Contracts table.
    Just want to know if this kind of table structure is somewhat okay to start with (Ready to face challanges later :) )
    Just looking for guidelines or any link which can help how to prioritize things and all that..
    One simple question : In Normal CRM or Ticketing system, do we keep such kind of business relations on database or application front end.
    Which one is better Database or Applicaiton front end to keep workflow ?
    Hope These are some questions which can be answered in less than 30 Mins...
    Thanks a lot Sir :)

  • Oracle Database Express Edition 10g; Designer, PL/SQL; Download

    Hi,
    I am new to this forum, I hope that I am posting in the right one :)
    I am refreshing my SQL knowledge an installed the "Oracle Database Express Edition 10g Release 2 (10.2)" which works fine. I now would like to learn PL/SQL and Oracle Designer.
    Are these 2 also offered as a free download for personal use? Since the Oracle website is pretty complex I am not sure what I should download.
    Can I run these programs on one WinXP Home machine?
    Thanks for your help!

    Designer is not free like Express Edition. You cannot use it for any commericial purpose without a licence.
    Designer is a big tool. I don't know why it shouldn't run against XE but it is a tough blighter to configure and install. It is also a moribund product, so the answer to this question:
    Is there a newer Designer version available?is likely to be "No" whenever you ask it.
    Cheers, APC

  • How to pass a date parameter from report builder query designer to oracle database

    i'm using report builder 3.0 connected to oracle database. i'm trying to pass a date parameter in the query with no success, i don't
    know the exact syntax. I've tried :
    SELECT * FROM igeneral.GCL_CLAIMS where CREATED_BY IN (:CREATED_BY) AND CLAIM_YEAR IN(:UW_YEAR) AND (LOSS_DATE) >To_Date('01/01/2014','mm/dd/yyyy')
    it worked perfectly.
    However if i try to put a date parameter "From" instead of 01/01/2014 it will not work, a Define Query Parameter popup window appear and error occurred after i fill
    the values (usually i shouldnt get this popup i should enter the value when i run the report)
    SELECT * FROM igeneral.GCL_CLAIMS where CREATED_BY IN (:CREATED_BY) AND CLAIM_YEAR IN(:UW_YEAR) AND (LOSS_DATE) >To_Date(:From,'mm/dd/yyyy')
    appreciate your assistance

    Hi Gorgo,
    According to your description, you have problem when in passing a parameter for running a Oracle Query. Right?
    Based on my knowledge, it use "&" as synax for parameter in Oracle, like we use "@" in SQL Server. In this scenario, maybe you can try '01/01/2014' when inputing in "From". We are not sure if there's any limitation for To_Date()
    function. For your self-testing, you can try the query in sqlplus/sql delveloper. Since your issue is related to Oracle query, we suggest you post this thread onto Oracle forum.
    Best Regards,
    Simon Hou
