so decided to install sql developer.. i downloaded and installed it.
but the it doesnt start after double clicking it.. i also created a listener using netca..
please help ..
thanks in advance .....
Do you have a jdk installed on your machine? You need java 1.6 jdk at least to run SQL Developer.
Go down to the bin directory in your sql developer install dir, and run the sqldeveloper.exe from there.
This will give you a command window and you'll see any error messages that are being generated.
There are plenty of blog posts out there where people have documented the exact steps to get SQL Developer going on their specific Linux derivative. Try checking those for help as well.
thank you so much.. i dont think my system has jdk.. thank you so much for ur help
and i have another problem in another system i.e the sql developer rpm file wont install for some reason..
Please include more information in your posts. Saying 'it does not work' doesn't give us enough to go on.
What version of Linux are you running?
Let's get system 1 going before we worry about system 2, otherwise start a separate thread please.
thank you so much.. system 1 now works fine..
on system 2 i have fedora 18 and i have installed oracle db 11g and creeated a database, instance using dbca and listener using netca.
i also downloaded sql developer and when i double click the rpm file it says cannot install file. i also tried rpm -i <filename>..
still doesnt install.. please help..
Try using additional flags in your rpm command to get extra feedback:
*rpm -Uvh* (for an upgrade)
*rpm -ivh* (for a new installation)
Also, if your user does not have sufficient privileges, you would have to use sudo rpm .... For more information on rpm:
