The PersonPB application that accompanies Silk Performer is required to perform all steps described in the Oracle tutorials of the Silk Performer Tutorials book. The application provides a simple user interface to search an Oracle database for customers, to update customer records, to insert new customer records, and to remove obsolete customer data.

Keep in mind that the application was developed chiefly for demonstration purposes. Database traffic generated by the application can easily be recorded with the Silk Performer Recorder and BDL scripts based on the captured database traffic are easy to understand since they contain mostly simple Oracle API function calls.

To work with the PersonPB application, you need one of the following:
  • Oracle 9.x database or later
  • SQLNet client (with compatible database version)
