I would like to install and setup the some database, application server like web sphere. I am learning java, so I thought if I have complete set up on my machine, I can clearly understand the end to end process. I previously installed Oracle 9i for practicing SQL/PL SQL. I also installed tomcat server. But if I need to link these to form a complete setup, I don't know how to do it. Can some one please help.

there are many freeware application servers are available like one from sun also.
database mysql is also open source.
eclipse IDE can also be downloaded.
You have to install these thing in the pieces only, you will not find all of them in the complete package.
I think a complete application server will comes with its own IDE and JDK also but then it will be paid one take the example
of weblogic ( this comes in its own complete package).
So try to collect things one by one and integrate them.

If you have a web container and a database you already have all you need--there is no "installing them all together" (or, rather, there doesn't *need* to be).

Are you having a specific issue?

Thanks for your responses. I know how to install Tomcat and Oracle database seperately.

But this time I installed websphere application server trail version, which doesn't have any IDE. I can install Eclipse.But what are the plug-ins do I need to use to link with the websphere? I will try to install some database say oracle , but I need some inputs on how to link websphere with the oracle?

I install RAD trail version, which has Eclipse IDE, as well as Websphere application server. I also installed Oracle 11g database. Now I need to configure the websphere application server with oracle database. When I googled it I got the following link,

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/sr/v6r1/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.sr.doc/twsr_installn15_oracle.html

But it is asking to run the deployment script. But I can't find it in my websphere installation folder. I am stuck here. Can some one please help me?

I don't understand why you want to use a Websphere App Server if you 'just' want to learn java...

To setup a datasource in WAS you need to do a lot of steps - in a number of of screens. The possibility of making errors when not that familiar with WAS - is very large.

I'll suggest that you start with a JBoss AS or Sun's glassfish server - they are easy to work with, and can both be integrated with the "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" version.
