After you have installed software as described in Installing Siebel Applications but before developers can do any configuration work, each developer must be set up with a local database. The process for setting up a local database includes tasks typically performed by an administrator and tasks performed by each developer. For example, an administrator creates database users and runs Siebel Remote server tasks to generate local databases, then each developer initializes their local database by downloading repository data from the server. For a list of tasks and where in the application they are performed, see Table 7.
NOTE: This chapter gives you an overview of the sequence of tasks that need to be performed to set up a developer's local database. It is not necessary to complete these tasks to be able to follow the configuration examples in Getting Started in the User Interface Layer through Modifying the Look and Feel of the Web Client. In those chapters you can log in to the SAMPLE database using the SADMIN user name and password.
