After a bit of a long wait Oracle have finally release Oracle Data Visualization for the desktop. The desktop version of this tool is only available for Windows desktops at the moment. I’m sure Oracle will be bringing out versions of other OS soon (I hope).

After downloading has finished, you can run the installer.
When the Oracle Installer opens you will be prompted to enter the required details or to accept the defaults, as outlined below.
- Installation Location : Decide where you are going to have the Oracle Data Visualization tool installed on your desktop. The default location is
C:\Program Files\Oracle Data Visualization Desktop. Click Next
- Options : There are 2 check boxes for ‘Create desktop shortcut’ and ‘Deploy samples’. Leave both of these checked, as you will probably want these. Click Next.
- Summary : Lists a summary of the installation. There is nothing really for you to do here, so on the Install button.
- Progress : You can ten sit back and monitor the progress of the installation. The installation tool about 4 minutes on my small Windows VM
When the installation is complete you can now fire up Oracle Data Visualization and enjoy. If you have just installed the tool it will automatically be started for you.
When the tool has finished all the configurations that it needs to do, the tool will open with the following window and shows a sample projects for you to get an idea of some of the things that are possible.
