I am sorry if this is OFF Topic. I am looking for help from more
experienced people in these areas.
I am looking for a job and one company is looking for people to
create a test team (part of the quality assurance team). Their
projects is based on SAP and Oracle Financials systems. I used SAP
and Oracle Financials some years ago and I do not have a chance to
create a lab for me to study them because of the nature of those products.
I thought that could help me a lot to try to emulate a lab installing
Oracle as a database under my Freebsd personal server . That way
maybe I can at least recreate the database schema (if I get it) and
try to understand how it works and maybe , as part of the study , try
to run reports and populate the database in some way (maybe PHP or Ruby?).
- IS there any version of Oracle that I could install under FreeBSD
(actually on 7.3)?
- Since I am in the process of learning to be more prepared for new
projects as an Independent IT consultant, I would like to be able to
learn tools that help me in the projects/job search. So IN this case,
assuming that I can recreate someway with Oracle or MySQl or
Postgresql the tables I need to study and assuming also previous
experience on programming
How would you see to use Ruby for a crash course on accessing and web
publishing the information on those tables? (actually I continue the
process of learning Python but I am not ready , yet, for the web
part). If You think Ruby could be faster , any resources you point me
to are really appreciated.
- Finally . If you know of places of where I can get information,
free if possible, about the actual version of Oracle Financials and
SAP. Technical manual and the operational , administrative ones. I
would love to hear where. I have tried of course the companies for
SAP and Oracle financials but at least from here I can not access
anything if I am not a consultant certified by them. Any suggestions?
I know this could sound as a waste of time project (trying to emulate
the operation of SAP and Oracle in some part) but for sure I can not
have access to a real application and besides with the Ruby learning
I guess I could be in better position for future projects.
As always thanks in advance for your help and comments.
