Teaching a trick to easily import Excel Data into Oracle Autonomous Database (ADW and ATP)

The other day my boss shared with me a nice trick that I found it very useful and has simplified my life a lot, when creating demos or quick prototypes. For this reason and knowing how many people are quickly switching into using Oracle Autonomous Database (ADW or ATP), I thought it would be a good idea to be shared as a quick reference.

The trick consists in using SQL Developer to easily import Data from Excel spreadsheets, directly into Oracle Autonomous DB (ADW or ATP). This also opens up a nice wizard that helps create and configure new database tables to be created and then used to import the data. How cool is that?

This complements a previous article that explains how to provision and get started with Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Database. Also, we have published articles to get started with Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse.

Remember, the difference is simple:

Teaching How to get Microservices to Consume Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Database (ATP)

A few days ago, we published an article that shows how to provision and connect to Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Database (ATP). Based on this, we got multiple requests to also demonstrate how to extend the connection to the Autonomous DB, not only from SQL Developer, but also from polyglot microservices.

In this blog, we are going to take a step forward and create a simple “Hello World” NodeJS application that exposes some REST APIs that push and pull data using an Oracle Autonomous DB. The idea is to give you all knowledge required, to be start building your own microservices, consuming data from Autonomous DB.
