PL-SQL Download Course Project

Download the Course Project file


Objective: Download the Course Project files for all exercises and the optional files for On-Your-Own exercises.
This exercise is not scored and is an optional exercise.
When you have completed the exercise, click the Submit button.
The following steps are not required. However, they will give you a better understanding of the material discussed during the remainder of the course.
  1. Download the sql to create the tables.
  2. PetStore Link
  3. Your browser will ask you what you want to do with the file. Choose to save it to disk.
  4. Specify that the file be saved on the C:\ drive.
    This is the default folder for Windows 7 or Windows 10.
  5. Right mouse click the file to edit the file with your editor.

If you do not have an Oracle database to use during the course, skip the rest of these steps. Otherwise, continue with these steps to install the Course Project on your database.
  1. Open the petstore.sql file in a text editor.
    A few lines into the script is the following line:
    CONNECT PETSTORE/GREATPETS;
    

    This line only works if you run Oracle on your own computer.
    If you are running on a networked database, modify the line to include your database server name. For example, if your database server was named FRANCE, modify the line to say:
    CONNECT PETSTORE/GREATPETS@FRANCE;
    

  2. Save the file with the change. Keep the same name for the file.
  3. Get to a command prompt and change directories to the directory where you stored your file.
    If you are running on Windows , select Start/Programs/Accessories/ Command Prompt.
    On Unix, start a terminal window if needed.
    The command for changing to a directory in Windows and Unix is:
    cd directoryname
    Be sure to type the full path of the directory.
  4. Type this command at the operating system prompt:
    Sqlplus username/password@server
    You must log in as a valid Oracle DBA.
    The default user name and password of the Oracle DBA is SYSTEM and MANAGER.
    If you are using a database on your local computer, you can leave out the "@server" portion.
    Otherwise, fill in the name of the database server on your network. This starts up SQL*Plus.
    You will see a prompt that looks like this: SQL>
  5. Execute the complete script by typing this line and pressing ENTER:
    start petstore.sql
  6. When the script is done, you will automatically return to your operating system prompt.
    Exit the operating system window (not always needed in Unix) by typing EXIT and pressing ENTER.
    You now have installed the PETSTORE user and its data in your Oracle database.
For the purposes of this course, we will assume that you have placed your course downloads in the My Documents folder.
If you have Windows, or choose to place it elsewhere, make a note of the folder name so you can find it later.
