Oracle SQL and PL/SQL + Python Developer + Java Programmer

This program teaches you how to use SQL to build applications and generate business reports, master SQL using an Oracle database, and learn PL/SQL extension language to write sophisticated queries against an Oracle database. You will also learn to write useful Java classes, applying Object-Oriented concepts such as inheritance, and create Java programs that work with these classes. You then start learning the basics of programming in Python. The introductory section teaches you how Python works and what it’s good for. You will also gain an understanding of Python’s place in the wider programming world.

The course gets you coding quickly after starting the course. You then move on to advanced methods in which you’ll learn how to work with iPhone Notebook, the Collections Module, regular expressions, databases, CSV files, JSON, and XML. Also in this section, you will learn advanced sorting, how to write object-oriented code in Python, and how to test and debug their Python code. In the last section, you get a rapid introduction to NumPy, pandas, and matplotlib, which are Python libraries. This course prepares you for entry into the job market as a Java or Python programmer or an entry-level Oracle SQL Developer or to take on more responsibility using new skills gained in a current job.

Oracle SQL and PL/SQL + Python Developer + Java Programmer Requirements / Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for this course; however, some prior programming language knowledge is helpful.

This program can be taken only on a PC. It is compatible with the Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and later operating systems and with the latest versions of any of the following browsers: Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome.

Note: Dual monitors are helpful but NOT required.

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.

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.

  • 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

This program can only be taken on a PC. It is compatible with the Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and later operating systems and with the latest versions of any of the following browsers: Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome.

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/RETURNkey.
  • 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.

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".
