How to Install and Configure an Oracle Mart

In the previous versions, erwin DM connected to the Mart database through the database client software. Now, the application connects to the Mart database through a web server. The database client software is no longer required.

The Mart comprises the following components:


Stores the user data for the Workgroup Edition. You can use an Oracle 11g, 12c, or the certified versions 12c R2, 18c, and 19c database for the Mart database. If you are using Oracle 12c, you can use a pluggable database. You must use a new database and not an existing database that was created for an older version of the data modeling tool.


Includes a web-based component named erwin Mart Administrator that helps you manage the Mart through a web console.

Web server

Hosts erwin Mart Administrator. You can use a web server of your choice. If you have not installed a web server, use the erwin Mart Server option and install Tomcat.
