Hi All,

First of all let me tell you that I am really new to Unix and Uwin, I need to connect to Oracle database using Uwin.

Oracle Database is in : E:\DevSuiteHome_1\BIN\sqlplusw.exe

Uwin Installed at : "E:\Program Files\Uwin2.9.1\usr\bin\login.exe"

When I run the Uwin and execute SQLPlus command..It says "sqlplus : not found"

Do i need to install Uwin in Oracle Bin folder.

Regards,
Ashoka BL

Wrong. That is NOT the "Oracle Database" that is just one of the windows client to connect to Oracle databases.

And since UWIn seems to be a Unix simulator, there is generally no way to "connect the UNIX OS" to Oracle. You can only run programs under Unix that connect to Oracle, like SQL*Plus for Unix for example.

You will have to install an Unix Oracle client under UWin I suppose. But since "UWin" is probably not a supported OS by Oracle, there is no way of knowing if it will work or not.

But since you have your terminology all jumbled up, I think you are trying to do something this complicated way which has a much simpler solution. What is your actual goal?

@ThomasG,

Thanks for the information, I am learning Unix Shell scripting, I haven't installed UNIX in my Home PC, I thought i can learn Unix Commands with "Uwin".

I thought of learning Unix shell scripting to connect oracle database, retrieve data from EMP table and store it in a flat file.


I have installed Oracle Server in my home PC only.

That might be more complicated than being worth it.

If UWin is anything like Cygwin, then it basically works if you want to get a job done and know what you are doing.

But it is different from a "real" Linux/Unix in so many ways that it is not really a good way to LEARN stuff.

A better option would be to get a Linux machine and install Oracle on that.

Or you can get VMWare and run it under there.

There is even a ready-made VMWare application with Oracle Enterprise Linux 4.6 and Oracle Express Database 10g here that you can download and just run in the VMWare player.

@ThomasG,

Thanks for the valuable information, Yes UWin is just like Cygwin.

I am trying to download Unix/Linux in http://www.tech-faq.com/download-unix.shtml.

Please let me know If I can download Unix/Linux online ?

Yes, you can.

You already found dozens of links to dozens of versions.
