Launch Dashboard and Connect to Oracle Database

In the previous post we saw an overview of what we are going to develop within the dashboard.

The next steps..

Launch InfoCaptor and create a database connection

Once you hit the connect button, it opens a connection dialog as shown below

For connecting to Oracle, you should select the Oracle driver and enter the Host, Port and DB name as shown below. Enter the username/password and connect. Once connected, the connection dialog closes, you may click on connect button again to verify if there is an entry in the live connection region as shown below
