VirtualBox Users

Please note this appliance is for testing and learning purposes only, therefore it is unsupported and should not to be used in a production environment. With this appliance you will be able to do the Oracle ADF REA Lab.

The following software is installed in this VirtualBox image:

  • Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 Update 5
  • Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition (11.2.0.1)
  • JDeveloper (11.1.1.4)

All the content needed for the hands on labs is included on the image.

Please follow the instructions below for downloading and importing the JDeveloper / ADF VirtualBox image.
Requirements

  • At least 2GB of RAM (recommended 3GB)
  • At least 16GB of free disk space (Note: virtualization works best with contiguous space so if using Windows as the host operating system, it is a good idea to run a defragmenting program, and make sure you are using NTFS for your file system to handle large files). One of the main problems folks have with setting up the VM is lack of disk space. Make sure you point Virtual Box's default directory (where it imports VMs into) to a place with sufficient disk space.
  • 2GHz processor
    Setup Instructions - Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit, Mac OS, Linux

1. Download and install Oracle VM VirtualBox. It is also REQUIRED to install the VirtualBox Extension Pack to get this VM working.
2. Download the VM image files.

The VM image files need to be extracted and combined to create two files: OTN_VDD_ADF-disk1.vmdk (~2.7GB) & OTN_VDD_ADF-disk2.vmdk (~5GB). Use 7-Zip to extract OTN_VDD_ADF-disk1.vmdk.001 (it automatically uses the 002-004 files) - this creates OTN_VDD_ADF-disk1.vmdk. Use 7-Zip to extract OTN_VDD_ADF-disk2.vmdk.001 (it automatically uses files 002-008) - this creates OTN_VDD_ADF-disk2.vmdk. (Note: If 7-zip shows it will extract a zip file instead of a vmdk file, then one or more of your downloaded files are corrupted.) OTN_VDD_ADF.ovf does not need to be extracted.
Use the following commands to extract these files.

  • Windows: Use 7-zip to open OTN_VDD_ADF-disk1.vmdk.001. Do the same for the "disk2" file by opening OTN_VDD_ADF-disk2.vmdk.001 to re-create OTN_VDD_ADF-disk2.vmdk. 7-zip will use all the necessary files to re-create the vmdk's.
  • Linux: Use p7zip to open OTN_VDD_ADF-disk1.vmdk.001 (Example command: 7za x OTN_VDD_ADF-disk1.vmdk.001). Do the same for the "disk2" file by opening OTN_VDD_ADF-disk2.vmdk.001 to re-create OTN_VDD_ADF-disk2.vmdk. 7-zip will use all the necessary files to re-create the vmdk's.
  • Mac: Use 7zX to open OTN_VDD_ADF-disk1.vmdk.001. Do the same for the "disk2" file by opening OTN_VDD_ADF-disk2.vmdk.001 to re-create OTN_VDD_ADF-disk2.vmdk. 7-zip will use all the necessary files to re-create the vmdk's.

3. Start VirtualBox. Using the VirtualBox Manager, validate that the default machine folder under general preferences is set to the location you want to use for the VM.
4. From the VirtualBox Manager, import the VM (File-->Import Appliance).
5. Click Choose... to browse the file system and select the file OTN_VDD_ADF.ovf.
7. Click Next.
8. After viewing the Appliance Import Settings, click finish to begin the import. It will prompt you to agree to the appropriate developer licenses while importing. You will see 'XXXXX (Powered Off)' when it is finished importing.
9. The memory for the guest OS has been set to 2 GB, but this may be changed using the VirtualBox Manager if additional memory is available on the host OS. For example, if the host machine has 8GB of memory, the memory for the guest OS may be set to 5GB.
10. To use the VM, select the VM and click on Start. This will boot the VM at which time you should log in as the oracle user. Note: The password is oracle for the OS users oracle and root.

11. Double-Click the "Start Here" icon on the desktop and follow the directions from there...

Local installation

1. Have access to or have installed Oracle JDeveloper 11g Version 11.1.1.4.0 and Oracle XE 10g. You can download them from Oracle Technology Network.
2. This tutorial uses the sample HR schema that comes with the recent versions of the Oracle database.
For security reasons this schema is usually locked. We'll therefore unlock the user in the next steps. From a command line invoke sqlplus and login using the system user; provide the password for the account.
3. Type the following command in the SQL> prompt
alter user HR identified by HR account unlock;
Once the command got executed you can exit sqlplus and the command line window.
