Summary: this tutorial introduces you to an Oracle sample database and provides you with the links for you to download it.
Note that this tutorial explains you the Oracle Sample Database. It doesn’t show you how to create this sample database in Oracle. To create this database for practicing, you follow the creating the Oracle Sample Database tutorial.
Introduction to the OT Oracle sample database
We provide you with an Oracle sample database named OT which is based on a global fictitious company that sells computer hardware including storage, motherboard, RAM, video card, and CPU.
The company maintains the product information such as name, description standard cost, list price, and product line. It also tracks the inventory information for all products including warehouses where products are available. Because the company operates globally, it has warehouses in various locations around the world.
The company records all customer information including name, address, and website. Each customer has at least one contact person with detailed information including name, email, and phone. The company also places a credit limit on each customer to limit the amount that customer can owe.
Whenever a customer issues a purchase order, a sales order is created in the database with the pending status. When the company ships the order, the order status becomes shipped. In case the customer cancels an order, the order status becomes canceled.
In addition to the sales information, the employee data is recorded with some basic information such as name, email, phone, job title, manager, and hire date.

Download Oracle Sample database
Download the following sample database in zip file format:
After downloading the file, you should extract it. The zip file contains the following
ot_create_user.sqlis for creating OT user and grant privileges
ot_schema.sqlis for creating database objects such as tables, constraints, etc.
ot_data.sqlis for loading data into the tables.
ot_drop.sqlis for removing all objects in the sample database.
The following illustrates the statements for creating the database objects.
