Instructions for Setting up an Oracle Database for Pathway Tools
The Pathway Tools have been tested with Oracle versions 7.3.2 through
8.1.5. This document does not cover details on how to install Oracle
or set up clients to access Oracle. Consult the Oracle Server
Administrator's Guide for such information.
In order to use the Pathway Tools with Oracle, the database
administrator will need to do the following:
- Create a database with ORACLE_SID = PERK, and create tablespaces,
datafiles, etc. Allocate roughly 500M for datafiles (at the present
time, this is an overestimate of how much space you will need).
- Create a user ECOCYC with password ECOCYC. Grant this user
connect and resource privileges.
- Connect to PERK using sqlplus and run the file aic-export/pathway-tools/ptools/[version]/sql/build-perk.sql. This will create the schema tables and indexes.
