Using the Example Databases
DatabaseLink contains a number of example databases (many use HSQLDB). These allow you to try examples in the documentation and learn the details of working with databases in the Wolfram Language. The examples are configured to run in $UserBaseDirectory/DatabaseResources/Examples (they cannot reside inside the main Wolfram System installation directory). To run these examples you will need to install them. You can do this by copying the files or by running the command DatabaseExamplesBuild from the DatabaseLink`DatabaseExamples` package. This function will install the examples (if necessary) or restore them to their original state.
|<<DatabaseLink`DatabaseExamples`||load the database examples package|
|DatabaseExamplesBuild||install and restore the database examples|
If you want to install the examples by hand, copy the Examples directory from inside the DatabaseLink installation directory (typically this is $InstallationDirectory/SystemFiles/Links/DatabaseLink) to $UserBaseDirectory/DatabaseResources.
