Oracle Warehouse Builder 10g Release 2: Oracle by Example Series

Oracle Warehouse Builder 10g Release 2 is an enterprise business intelligence integration design
tool that manages the full life cycle of data and metadata for Oracle Database 10g. It provides an
easy-to-use, graphical environment to rapidly design, deploy, and manage business intelligence
systems. Oracle Warehouse Builder 10g:

Enables the extraction, transformation, and loading of data to produce quality


information in the Oracle database

Protects and leverages customer investment in the Oracle technology stack through data
and metadata integration

Oracle Warehouse Builder is used to design, build, and manage your data
warehouse, data mart, or business intelligence system. The prototype throughout
the product is that you import definitions, define target structures, validate the
structures, generate the code to implement the structures, and deploy the
structures to the target environment. After it is deployed, Warehouse Builder assists
in the daily maintenance as well as monitoring of the deployed system

Logging In to the Design Center
To start the OWB Design Center, perform the following steps:
1. Select Start > Programs > [Oracle - OWBclientHome] > Warehouse Builder
> Design Center.
The Design Center Logon window appears. Enter rep_owner as username and
password. By default, Connection details option is selected.
If you cannot see Connection details option, click Show Details.
Enter host as localhost or <name of your computer>, port as 1521, and service
name as orcl or <your database service name>. Click OK.

2. The Design Center appears. The Design Center is divided into three panels: Project
Explorer, Connection Explorer, and Global Explorer.
The Project Explorer on the left side contains two projects: MY_PROJECT, an empty
project created when OWB is installed, and OWB_DEMO, a partially defined project
that you created with the setup scripts.

3. A project is a container to manage your design work. After you create a project, you
can create all the other Warehouse Builder objects.
Warehouse Builder contains wizards, object editors, property sheets, and object
finding tools that assist you in designing your business intelligence system.
In the Project Explorer panel's navigation tree, expand the OWB_DEMO project.
Various object types appear in the tree: Databases, Files, Applications, Data Profiles,
and so on.
Expand the Databases node, and you see various object types that can be included
in design of your warehouse: Oracle databases, non-Oracle databases, and
transportable modules.
Expand the Oracle node, and you see two modules predefined by the setup scripts:
SALES_WH and XSALES. Modules are logical groupings of source or target
definitions.

4. Expand the SALES_WH module. The various object types appear in the tree:
mappings, transformations, dimensions, cubes, tables, and so on. Expand some of
these nodes to see the objects that have been predefined by the setup scripts.
