Oracle:

  • 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.
  • Oracle Client Options:
    • 1. Install Oracle SQL Developer. 1. If you are on a Windows 32 bit platform click here. Download "Windows 32-bit - zip file includes the JDK1.6.0_35".  2. For Windows 64 bit and other platforms, click here.
    • Note: For Windows 64 bit platforms download "Windows 64-bit - zip file includes the JDK 7".
    • 2. Create a folder called sqldeveloper in the Oracle folder located on c: and then extract the sqldeveloper.zip to that sqldeveloper folder you just created.
    • 3. Within that folder, open the sqldeveloper folder.
    • 4. Double-click sqldeveloper.exe to start SQL Developer.
  • Class Files:
    • 1. Download the class files.
    • 2. After downloading the class files, create a directory on your hard drive named "Webucator" that can be found easily.
    • 3. On Windows it is recommended the new folder have a path of C:\Webucator.*
    • 4. Extract the files to the folder you just created.
    • * If you are using XAMPP (e.g. for PHP classes), you must place the Webucator folder on the C:\xampp\htdocs folder.
  • Unlocking the HR Account:
    • 1. In SQL Developer, log in using this connection
      • Connection name: system
      • Username: system
      • Password: system (This should be the password you created when you installed Oracle)
    • 2. Open the HR_Unlock_Account.sql file from your class files.
    • 3. Click on the second green play button (F5) to execute the sql query.
    • 4. To continue setup, click on the green + under the Connections tab, and add the criteria below:
      • Connection Name: hr
      • Username: hr
      • Password: hr
      • Click on Connect. A worksheet should open up on a tab that's labeled "hr".
    • 5. Now that you're connected to HR, you're ready to test.
      • Enter the following in the worksheet: select * from regions;
      • Click on the "green arrow" to execute your code.
      • If you get back 2 columns and 4 rows then you are all set.

Java:

  • Download Java Development Tools:
    • 1. Download the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) 8. Note: You do not need to download the bundles that include JavaFC, Java EE, or Netbeans. You only need the JDK that includes the JRE and command-line development tools. After installation, the files will be located on the C drive, usually at C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1x
    • 2. Download Java SE 8.0 API Documentation.
    • 3. Download Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) 8 Update XX.

Download Java Editors / IDEs:

  • Option 1: Crimson Editor. Note: Crimson Editor is probably the best option unless you have a specific reason for using the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE) listed below.
    • 1. Go to http://www.crimsoneditor.com.
    • 2. Choose the option for Download from the left-hand navigation menu.
    • 3. Choose the most recent release from one of the download mirrors.
    • 4. Execute the file you just downloaded by double-clicking on it.
    • Read the License Agreement and click on the button labeled I Agree.
    • When asked what components to install, you can leave the default settings.
    • Install Location can be left as default.
    • When the install finishes, click the button labeled Close.
  • Option 2: Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Note: Use of the Eclipse integrated development environment is optional for this class at the discretion of the instructor.
    • 1. Go to http://www.eclipse.org/downloads.
    • 2. Choose the option Eclipse IDE for Java Developers. This downloads a zip file.
    • For basic Java classes, we use Eclipse IDE for Java Developers, which does not include Java EE capabilities such as Servlets and JSPs.
    • For Java EE classes, download Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers.
    • 3. Unzip/Extract the downloaded file to C:\. The installation is a simple unzip to C:\ (Eclipse does not "install" - you run it directly from eclipse.exe, which will be in C:\eclipse after the unzip).

Python:

  • Our Introduction to Python course uses IDLE, a simple Python IDE/editor that comes bundled with Python. All you need for class is to have Python 3.3 or later installed and to download the class files.
  • Install Python
    • 1. Check if you have Python 3 installed. To check if you have Python already installed:
    • Open a command prompt
    • Type "Python -V" (note there is a space before the capital V) and press the ENTER/RETURN key.
    • If Python is installed, you will get a response telling you what version you have. If you have version 3.3 or later, you are all set for class.
    • If you do not have Python or have an older version, follow the instructions below to install Python 3.4.
    • 2. Install Python 3.4
    • Option 1: Install Anaconda (recommended)
      • 1. Go to the Anaconda download page.
      • 2. Next to CHOOSE YOUR INSTALLER, click on your operating system.
      • 3. Click on the I WANT PYTHON 3.4 link.
      • 4. Click on the link button that ends with "Python 3.4 Graphical Installer". Be sure to get Python 3.4 and not Python 2.7 (unless your company is taking a private Python 2 class)!
      • 5. Follow the installation instructions.
    • Option 2: Install Python only
      • 1. Go to the Python download page.
      • 2. The web page should identify your operating system automatically. If it does not, select your operating system.
      • 3. Click the "Download Python 3.4.x" link to download the Python installer.
      • 4. Run the installer.
      • Test your installation by opening a command prompt and typing "python".
