I've never used Oracle database , and I just tried installing (11g express edition) last weekend. I was expecting to see some kind of UI where I make tables and queries and views and all, like Microsoft Access, and well I don't see anything of the sort. Can someone help me get started? Maybe it just doesn't show a UI because I had an error during install (and a warning)?
-NETWORK CONFIG WARNING ( BECAUSE iIM NOT ON A NETWORK, JUST THE INTERNET)
-ORACLE HOME PATH FOR SPACES ERROR
All I want to do is see that I can make a table, or tablespace, or anything.
My items in the start menu are:
Configuration and Migration Tools
Integrated Management Tools
Oracle Installation Products
I don't see any main UI where I actually creat a table or tablespace or anything.
I have a book on 11g but it only shows how to upgrade, not how to install or get started.(has instead, Getting started with Oracle Architecture)
Hi, you need to also download SQL Developer at http://www.oracle.com/technology/pro...per/index.html
This is the UI for running SQL, creating tables and so on. It works with Oracle Express a treat.
Welcome to the real world.
