Changing the GenePattern Database (HSQL to Oracle)  Print-icon

The GenePattern server runs against a database. By default, the GenePattern installation sets up an HSQL database. This section describes how to build and use an Oracle database in place of the HSQL database.

When using Oracle (or another database) you must initialize the database by running the scripts in the <GenePattern_HOME>/resources directory. You or your database administrator must ensure the database is available by JDBC URL from the GenePattern server.

Note: This procedure has been tested using the default Tomcat 5.5 server (Tomcat documentation), which comes with GenePattern.
