Installing ProC demo on Oracle 10g

The default install of Oracle 10g Enterprise Edition includes OCI and Oracle Programmer which are needed if a developer wants to use ProC. You can confirm the install by checking the oraInventory or look for files in $ORACLE_HOME/precomp/public

Developers will often ask for the ProC demo to be installed so they can use the make files as a starting point. To install the demo, the DBA will need to install "Database Examples" from the Companion CD. (see attached)

After the install you should find the $ORACLE_HOME/precomp/demo directory.
