If you don't have DBA privileges, ask your DBA to create a
DBDEMO database user with the Roles and System privileges as specified in this card, and give you the password and connection details. Then you can proceed with the steps near the end of this card to create a DBDEMO connection.
To begin creating a database connection, you will open the Create Database Connection dialog. To open the dialog, choose File New . In the New Gallery, select Connections in the Categories tree and Database Connection in the Items list. Then click OK.
When you create a database connection, you specify a username and password to authenticate the connection. You may use any valid username and password and connect to any schema. If you are connecting to the database to create other users, you must enter a username that has been granted DBA privileges.
After the new
DBDEMO user has been created, create a DBDEMO connection using
DBDEMO as the username to log in. The DBDEMO connection will be created in your application resources.
