DBM 405A Lab 2 SQL Review
1. Get access to a MySQL environment.
2. Familiarize yourself with the environment.
II. PARTS LIST
3. EDUPE Omnymbus Environment (https://devry.edupe.net:8300); and/or
4. MySQL (dev.mysql.com/downloads).
You may do the labs in this class on your own computer equipped with MySQL or you may use the MySQL environment hosted by the vendor Omnymbus. You may even use both.
Using MySQL on your own computer means downloading a version from dev.mysql.com/downloads and installing the database engine on your computer. This can be done easily and there are a number of resources on the web to help you with this process.
You may also use the MySQL environment hosted by Omnymbus by logging in with your credentials to https://devry.edupe.net:8300.
Using the first approach will give you experience writing programs on a desktop computer and accessing a database. Using the second approach will give you experience writing applications that access a database in a cloud environment.
You are encouraged to use both approaches.
In the previous lab (Week 1), you have established a database environment (either MySQL Community Server or the Omnymbus environment). You may continue to use that environment or you my return to Week 1 to set up the alternate environment.
