Outdated: Installing AdventureWorksLT Sample Database

This section describes how to install AdventureWorksLT as a sample database on SQL Server.

To practice JDBC interface with SQL Server, you need some tables and data on the database server. Microsoft has a nice sample database called AdventureWorksLT available free for you to use. This tutorial shows you how to download and install AdventureWorksLT on your local SQL Server.

1. Go to the SQL Server 2005 Samples and Sample Databases download page.

2. Go to the x86 section in the Instructions section, Click "AdventureWorksLT.msi -- 2,251 KB" to download the sample file. Save the download file to c:\temp.

3. Double click on the downloaded file: c:\temp\AdventureWorksLT.msi. The installation setup window shows up. Follow the instructions to finish the installation.

When the installation is done, two physical database files are installed in the data directory: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data:

AdventureWorksLT_Data.mdf   5,120 KB
AdventureWorksLT_Log.ldf    2,048 KB

To finish the installation, you need to attach the database physical files to your SQL server by running the following SQL statement with SQLCMD interface:

EXEC sp_attach_db @dbname=N'AdventureWorksLT', 
   @filename1=N'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server'
      +'\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data\AdventureWorks_Data.mdf',
   @filename2=N'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server'
      +'\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data\AdventureWorks_Log.ldf'
GO

The sample database AdventureWorksLT is ready for you to play now.
