Course Requirements


This program can be taken only on a PC. It is compatible with the Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and later operating systems and with the latest versions of any of the following browsers: Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome.

NOTE: Dual monitors are helpful but NOT required.

I. Oracle Database 10g/11g
You need to have full administrative access to Oracle 10g or 11g.
If you do not, you can use Oracle 11g Express Edition:

  1. Download Oracle Database Express Edition for either 32 or 64 bit OS:
    Note: You will need to register for a free account to gain access to the download.
  2. Execute the file you downloaded by double-clicking on the folder and then double-clicking on Setup.exe.
  3. Run through the Installer accepting all the defaults. Make your password system (all lowercase). Make sure to write down and keep your password.

Note: For any IT Department personnel who are setting up a work computer for a student:

This class requires the use of the Oracle supplied HR demo schema, with the permissions and objects in the state in which Oracle created them. The HR schema is created by default during an install but is not always unlocked. Please unlock the schema, assigning a password. Please make sure the student has the password.

If you will be using a work laptop at home, then install Oracle at home. If your IT department is installing it at work, make sure they disconnect from both the internet and the intranet before launching the install. The safest way to do this is to remove the ethernet connection from your laptop and turn off your wireless connection

II. Oracle Client Options

  1. Install Oracle SQL Developer
  • f you are on a Windows 32 bit platform click here. Download "Windows 32-bit - zip file includes the JDK1.6.0_35".
  • For Windows 64 bit and other platforms, click here. Note: For Windows 64 bit platforms download "Windows 64-bit - zip file includes the JDK 7".

      2. Create a folder called sqldeveloper in the Oracle folder located on c: and then extract the to that sqldeveloper folder you just created.

* If you are using XAMPP (e.g, for PHP classes), you must place the Webucator folder on the C:\xampp\htdocs folder.

IV. Unlocking the HR Account

  1. In SQL Developer, log in using this connection
  • Connection name: system
  • Username: system
  • Password: system (This should be the password you created when you installed Oracle)

      3. Click on the second green play button(F5) to execute the sql query.
      4. To continue setup, click on the green + under the Connections tab, and add the criteria below:

Option 2: Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

Note: Use of the Eclipse integrated development environment is optional for this class at the discretion of the instructor.

  1. Go to
  2. Choose the option Eclipse IDE for Java Developers. This downloads a zip file.
  • For basic Java classes, we use Eclipse IDE for Java Developers, which does not include Java EE capabilities such as Servlets and JSPs.
  • For Java EE classes, download Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers.

      3. Unzip/Extract the downloaded file to C:\. The installation is a simple unzip to C:\ (Eclipse does not "install" - you run it directly from eclipse.exe, which will be in C:\eclipse after the unzip).


None, though some prior programming language knowledge is helpful.
