Getting Started with SQL Developer: Part 1

by Sue Harper | December 2009 | MySQL Oracle PHP

This article by Sue Harper is all about preparing your environment, installation, and getting started with SQL Developer.

SQL Developer is easy to set up and use. The best way to learn is by practice, and for that you'll need a computer with access to an Oracle database and SQL Developer. This article assumes you have a computer with Microsoft Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X installed, and that you have access to an Oracle database. It focuses on the alternative installations available for SQL Developer, where to find the product, and how to install it. Once your environment is set up, you can follow a quick product walk-through to familiarize yourself with the landscape. You'll create a few connections, touch on the various areas available (such as the SQL Worksheet and Reports navigator), and learn about the control of the windows and general product layout.
