Pre-Workshop Setup Instructions: Hands-on Database Application Development

Welcome to the Oracle Technology Network Developer Day - Hands-on Database Application Development lab installation instructions. This is a bring-your-own-laptop workshop; this document describes how to install a virtual guest appliance that provides pre-configured Oracle software for your use while working on the labs. (Note: this appliance is not needed for the .NET track.)

Please note that this appliance is for testing purposes only, as such it is unsupported and should not to be used in production environment. This virtual machine contains:

  • Oracle Linux 6.5
  • Oracle Database 12c Release 1 Enterprise Edition
  • Oracle XML DB
  • Oracle SQL Developer
  • Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler
  • Oracle Application Express
  • Hands-On-Labs (accessed via the Toolbar Menu in Firefox)

 

Requirements

 
  • At least 2GB RAM. Default VM is 1G RAM, for better performance increase.
  • At least 15GB of free space (Note: virtualization works best with contiguous space so it is a good idea if on Windows to run a defrag program, and make sure you are using NTFS for your file system to handle large files on Windows. )
  • 2GHz Processor (a lesser processor will be acceptable but slower)
  • Mozilla Firefox 2.0 or higher, Internet Explorer 7 or higher, Safari 3.0 and higher or Google Chrome 1.0 or higher
  • Adobe Acrobat reader
  • Admin privileges on your box

Setup


You must accept the OTN VM Agreement to download this software.
Accept License Agreement | Decline License Agreement

Step 1. Download and install Oracle VM VirtualBox on your host system.

Step 2. Download the files (the use of a download manager is highly recommended):

DownloadOTN_Developer_Day_VM.ova (5,215,947,264 bytes, md5sum: 4e8ef75cdbd0fbe3d3beee8f873b2d4a)

Step 3. Import your VM: File > Import Appliance to launch Appliance Import Wizard. Click Choose... to browse to the directory you re-assembled all the files in and select the OTN_Developer_Day_VM.ova then click Next> to begin importing the virtual machine. It will prompt you to agree to the appropriate developer licenses while importing. You will see 'Oracle Developer Days (Powered Off)' when it is finished importing.

Step 4. Test your VM: Once the import has completed, double-click the OTN Developer Days VM. Click OK to close the Virtualbox Information dialogs. When you get to the Enterprise Linux 6 screen you can now login. (Username and password is oracle.) Allow the process to complete; it is ready when you see a terminal window, which you can close. Once you are finished working in the guest VM you can shut it down via System > Shut Down; this will return the guest VM to the Powered Off state.

If you have any questions about this process, post a message to our Virtualization Discussion Forum (use hashtag "developerday"). Otherwise, you are now ready to complete the Hands-on Database Application Development HOLs at the workshop. See you there!
