In my last post, I explained how to download some tools to get started with oracle. But only downloading and installing the stuff won't work. You should be able to create database objects and after that only you will be able to practice.In this post, I will show you the two way to create a connection.

So, let's get started..

Using Command Line To Create Connection :

Open Command Prompt and type SqlPlus as shown in below mentioned screenshot.


It will ask for UserName and Password. Your password will be same as you typed at the time of installation of 11g Express edition and your username will be SYSTEM.


Using Oracle Sql Developer To Create Connection :

Open Oracle Sql Developer.

Click on the + icon to create new connection.


As soon as you click on this , it will open a window where you have to fill all your connection information as shown in below screenshot. Once done , click on the Test button to see whether your connection is successful or not. 


That's it !!!
