- NetBeans installed. Get it here. I used 7.3.
- An Oracle database where to connect to. If you don't have it, you'll have to install Oracle and set a new database (get what you need here). I'll assume you have one, although I'll write a tutorial for that soon. Anyway, it's pretty easy. I used Oracle 11g.
- The Oracle JDBC driver: ojdbc6.jar. You can get it here (you'll need to register first).
2. Create a new project: Press Ctrl + Shift + N.
