Oracle Database 10g/11g
You need to have full administrative access to Oracle 10g or 11g. If you do not, you can use Oracle 11g Express Edition:
1. Download Oracle Database Express Edition for either 32 or 64 bit OS: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/database-technologies/express-edition/overview/index.html?ssSourceSiteId=ocomen. Note: you will need to register for a free account to gain access to the download.
2. Execute the file you downloaded by double-clicking on the folder and then double-clicking on Setup.exe.
3. Run through the Installer accepting all the defaults. Make your password system (all lowercase). Make sure to write down and keep your password.
Note: for any IT Department personnel who are setting up a work computer for a student: (1) This class requires the use of the Oracle supplied HR demo schema, with the permissions and objects in the state in which Oracle created them. The HR schema is created by default during an install but is not always unlocked. Please unlock the schema, assigning a password. Please make sure the student has the password. (2) If you will be using a work laptop at home, then install Oracle at home. If your IT department is installing it at work, make sure they disconnect from both the internet and the intranet before launching the install. The safest way to do this is to remove the ethernet connection from your laptop and turn off your wireless connection
