|Oracle RepositoryDesigner Installation Guide|
You should have a basic understanding of client/server networks and how they operate, and be familiar with the elements of an application window.
For the client-side part, you should be familiar with the workstation and its user interface. For example, you should know how to locate, delete and copy files and understand the concepts of the search path, subdirectories, and path names. Refer to your operating system documentation for more information.
You should know how to run programs from the desktop and how to use Windows Explorer.
You should already have the Windows software installed and operational.
For the server-side part, you will need to be familiar with SQL and the principles of Oracle database management. The Oracle8i or Oracle9i database software must already be installed on the database server. You will also need to know the appropriate commands for file management under the server operating system (for example, UNIX or Windows NT).
For full details of hardware and software requirements, see the section "System Requirements " in Chapter 1.

Term Meaning Application Programming Interface (API) packages PL/SQL packages which manage the storage of all repository data. These ensure that validation is performed in an entirely consistent way by all tools that store data in the repository. client workstation A machine connected to a local or remote database (see below). This is the machine on which you install the Oracle RepositoryDesigner client software. database administrator
The person responsible for performing tasks such as installing the database, enrolling users, and creating database objects. The DBA and the network administrator might be the same person. database server The computer where the database resides. A remote database (see below) may be located on a computer such as a minicomputer or mainframe, or on a dedicated PC, or your database may reside on a file server if your system supports that configuration. This is the machine on which you install the repository software. definition tables A subset of repository tables; they contain the lookup or driving data used by the API packages, the generators and the User Extensibility facilities. These are created during the installation or upgrade process, in the same Oracle schema as the other objects in a repository instance. file server A network PC or other computer where shared program and data files reside. instance tables A subset of the repository tables; used to record the data entered by repository users. local database A database located on a machine that is also used as a client workstation. network administrator The person responsible for maintaining the network operating system. remote database A database located on a network computer other than the client workstation. A remote database is usually on the same network as the client workstation, but it may be located on a different server from a machine acting as the file server. repository instance All the database objects (e.g., tables, views, packages) required by the Oracle RepositoryDesigner software. repository owner A repository user who owns the repository objects and who performs administrative tasks associated with the repository. Only the repository owner has access to all the functions of the Repository Administration Utility. The repository owner cannot be either of the Oracle users SYSTEM or SYS. repository user An Oracle database user who has been granted access to the repository. subordinate user Any repository user other than the repository owner. There can be many subordinate users of the repository, but only one repository owner. In particular, subordinate users do not have access to all the functions of the Repository Administration Utility.
