Java codes and Oracle SID

Hi all,

Is it possible to create an Oracle SID using java codes. I was trying to install Oracle one time and saw that some of the scripts, i think, could be incorporated within java codes (like "create database ....") because they are just like normal sql lines (like "select * from ....").

The problem is that i must use the command prompt to create an sid (using "oradim -sid ..."). I wanted to know if it is possible to execute something like "oradim" from java codes. All i want to do is to create an automated installation of an application i made and an Oracle database having a specific SID.

Thanx very much.

Well, I've no idea (yet ;-)) what and SID is, but you can call your command line using:

Runtime.getRuntime().exec("oradim -sid ...");
