SQL developer Oracle is a graphical tool for development of a database. Users can carry out different processes on their databases such as browsing the objects in the database, editing and debugging the PL/SQL statements. Once they have downloaded the developer, it is very easy for the uses to get started. Of importance is to ensure that have downloaded the latest version of the developer.
The users have a number of options to start install the developer into their systems. Users can log in as a database administrator, where they are required to open the database home page login window. Those using windows will get the page on the start menu while those using Linux will get it at the Application menu on Gnome and K menu on KDE. They are then required to include the username and password and then click login.
In order to create an application, the users need to log in as a database user. The SQL developer Oracle has a sample database user known as HR, with a number of database tables and sample schema that can be used in the creation of fictional HR department. However, this account has been locked for security reasons. Therefore, users need to unlock it so that they can create a sample application. To unlock it, the users must be logged in as a database admin and then on the Administration Icon, select Database Users. They then should click on the HR schema so that they can find the HR user information. The have to include their username and password and then unlock the account. They must make sure that they have enabled Resource and Connect.
Users can also log in as a sample user. In order to do this, they will have to log out of the administration account. The Logout button is situated at the top right corner of the database home page. On the Login window, they should enter the HR for both username and password before clicking login.
Creating a sample application is one of the best ways for the users to view and edit the data of the database. On the HR schema, there is the Employee table which users need to create their sample application. To do this, the users will need to click on the Application Builder Icon on the home page. They should click on the create button to create the application and click Next. They can then add the pages in their application, following the details offered in the tutorial of the SQL developer Oracle.
Once they have developed their application, the users can now run it. They should select the run Application icon and then log in the page using the user name and password used in the HR database. The application will then appear, and it will show the employees table that they created. They can then explore the application, query and manage the database as they want to. Other information on getting started with SQL developer Oracle will be found on the official website as well as other websites.
