    Tutorial Trouble - Oracle Developer Data Modeler

    1001127
      Hello,

      I am very new to Apex and I am completing prerequisite tasks so I can complete the, "Building an Application Using Oracle Application Express: Part 1” and I ran into a problem. While going through the, "Re-engineering Your Database Using Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler 3.1", tutorial I became stuck on step 6. Instead of my screen reading, "The status is Success. Click Connect" it reads, "Status: Failure - Test failed: IO Error: The Network Adapter could not establish the connection." Up to step 5 I have done everything as instructed in the tutorial, which I have placed a link to below on the bottom.

      I am confused about what my next course of action should be. I checked my Network Adapter and it seems to be working fine and it is not giving me any other trouble. I don't think the adapter has any physical problems either. I am new to Apex and not sure what to do. Does anyone out there have an idea of a direction I could take to solve the problem or an idea of why that particular error message came up? Thank you for your time and I would be very appreciative of any help.

          "Network Adapter" does not refer to the network hardware in your PC, but to a component of Oracle SQL Developer. This is a generic message meaning that SQL Developer has failed to connect to the database using the connection details provided.

          At that stage you're not anywhere near APEX yet.
          Does anyone out there have an idea of a direction I could take to solve the problem or an idea of why that particular error message came up?
          Double check the connection details and try it again.

          If there's still a problem, then as it's is not APEX-related, seek help on the {forum:id=1317} or {forum:id=260} forums.
