  21. Banner Basics - Example • Database objects (Tables and views) • Example: G L R V R B L 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 - Primary Module (S- Student, G- General, F- Finance) 2 - Sub-module (L- Letter generation, G- General Person) 3 - Type of object (R- Report, A- Form, R- Repeating table) 4-7 - Meaningful name IF Pos 2 is a T and Pos 3 is a V, then the object is a validation table

  22. Banner Basics - Triggers • Triggers • aT_abcdddd_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Total no more than 29) • a = Product identifier (S) Student, (P)ayroll • T = Trigger • abcddd = Table name • xxxxx = Meaningful trigger name

  23. Banner Basics - Procedures • Database • Procedures and Functions • P_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Total no more than 29) • F_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Total no more than 29) • xxxxx = Meaningful name (Up to 27 characters) • Cursors • xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx_C

  24. Banner Basics – Referential Integrity • Referential integrity • Parent/Child relationships are enforced at the database level • No child data without a referenced parent key • No deletion of parent key while child records exist

  25. Banner Basics – RI example Permanent Primary Key PR Address PK_STVATYP STVATYP on Parent Table STVATYP_CODE Foreign Key 101 PR FK1_SPRADDR_INV_STVATYP_CODE on SPRADDR SPRADDR_ATYP_CODE Child Table

  26. Exercise 2 • What can you tell me about the column SPRADDR_ATYP_CODE? • The package for Admissions Checklist Processing was accidentally dropped. How would you restore it? • Which product does HWSKANAM belong to?

  27. Banner Basics - Installer • There is an installer (baninst) for the SCT Banner product on the RDBMS machine • Different on each platform • Modeled off of the old Oracle character mode installer • Menu interface for a bunch of shell scripts

  28. Banner Basics – Unloading Banner • There is an unload and decrypt program that will unload the SCT Banner forms executable files onto a Windows machine • Requires a decryption password • After unloading forms executables, they must be copied to the final forms/file server location(s)

  29. Banner Basics - BANNER_HOME • BANNER_HOME is a variable used to define the location of an SCT Banner software tree • Used by SCT Banner software as a base alias to find other SCT Banner software

  30. Banner Basics - BANENV (Unix) • BANENV is a shell script that is used to manage setting of the SCT Banner variables • Modeled on the oraenv file • Usually invoked from oraenv once the desired SID is known • Other systems follow this same premise banlogic.com (VMS) registry (NT)

  31. Banner Basics - Important Users • BANINST1 • Owns all the functions, packages, procedures, and views • BANSECR • Owns the SCT Banner security tables and objects

  32. Exercise 3 • What schema owner should own your views? • Do you still have your original install directory?

  33. Banner Installation - Software • Two CD-ROMs of SCT Banner software • Database contents and supporting code • Client forms • All software on the CD-ROMs is encrypted • Encryption Keys are on a sheet of paper shipped with the order. DO NOT LOSE! • Software is decrypted and downloaded onto RDBMS server

  34. Banner Installation - Process • The SCT Banner database software is installed on the RDBMS server in several steps: • Download Software • Create SCT Banner Environment • Create SCT Banner Instance • Create SCT Banner Database Objects • Compile Pro*C and Pro*Cobol

  35. Banner New Installation – Step 1 • The first step is to download the software • There are four basic steps in downloading: • Identify Products to download • Define Global Variables • Download the software • Build the environment control scripts

  36. Banner New Installation – Identify products • Identify Products to download (banpswd.shl) • First, two C programs (crypfile.c and inipassr.c) must be compiled to use in decrypting the SCT Banner products • Once these are done, the install script will ask for a decrypt password • This will then build a menu with the appropriate products marked for downloading

  37. Banner New Installation – Global definitions • Define Global Variables (banprmp.shl) • BANNER_HOME • EXE_HOME • ORACLE_HOME • ORACLE_SID • C • COBOL

  38. Banner New Installation – Software download • Download the software (bansrce.shl) • This process will download the software from the CD • Decrypt • Decompress • Populates the following directory structure:

  39. SCT Banner Software Directory Root Directory BANNER_ROOT FOCEXP_ROOT BANNER FOCEXP (BANNER_HOME) (FOCEXP_HOME) alumni alumni arsys arsys common common finaid finaid finance finance general general install install payroll payroll posnctl posnctl student student upgrades upgrades links The Banner Software Default Directory Structure

  40. Banner Software Directories • BANNER_HOME • Defines the home directory of the SCT Banner products • Each product has its own directory • General is a special product • Contains executables and administrative objects • Common is used for cross-product objects • Upgrades are used to stage SCT Banner upgrades • Links directory is used to centralize process access

  41. Banner General Directories general c cob dbprocs forms exe gif ico install misc plus verify views The Product Software Default Directory Structure

  42. Banner Product Directories • C directory contains the Pro*C source • COB directory contains the Pro*Cobol source and Cobol copybooks • DBPROCS contains the source for database procedures, functions, triggers, and O:A functions and procedures • FORMS contains the source for the forms, libraries, menus and reports

  43. Banner Product Directories • MISC directory contains the Perl scripts used on the NT platform and Shell scripts for UNIX. • On VMS the COM directory contains the DCL scripts • PLUS directory contains SQL*Plus scripts • VIEWS contains source for the database views and O:A views

  44. General Directories • General directory contains some special subdirectories: • EXE contains all the executables for all products • GIF contains the .gif files used in SCT Banner • ICO contains the icon files used in SCT Banner • ADMIN and PLUS directory under General also contains administration and upgrade scripts

  45. Banner New Installation – Step 2 • The install process then builds some environment manipulation scripts for managing SCT Banner variables (bansubs.shl): • banenv - for the Bourne shell • cbanenv - for the C shell • kbanenv - for the Korn shell • *banali - for printer aliasing for the various shells • Banlogic - for VMS

  46. Banner New Installation – Environment creation • The next step of the install process will create an SCT Banner environment on the RDBMS server • Build the LINKS directory (banlnks.shl –UNIX only) • Update the environment (bansenv.shl) • Oraenv is then modified to point to the banenv and cbanenv files (UNIX) • Oratab is modified with the new database • Banlogic.com is modified with directory locations (VMS)

  47. Banner New Installation – Step 3 • The next set of steps creates the SCT Banner database • Uses a pre-created database (bancrdb.shl, bancrtb.shl are provided for reference) • Creates the SCT Banner accounts (bancrus.shl) • Modifies the SCT Banner database configuration (baninit.shl)

  48. Banner New Installation – Step 4 • The next set of steps in the NEW install will create the database objects • Import SCT Banner tables and sample data (banimp.shl) • Build SCT Banner procedures and functions (bandbpr.shl) • Import views and create synonyms (banvwsy.shl)

  49. Multiple Banner environments • Multiple SCT Banner software environments • Initial install only built one code tree • Need to copy this to another tree to use as an upgrade staging area • Must manage the access to these different sets of SCT Banner code by using: • Shell scripts • Icons • DOS .bat files

  50. Multiple Banner databases • Multiple SCT Banner instance databases • Initial install only built one database • Need to clone this to a training database and a production staging database • Must manage the access to these different SCT Banner databases by using: • Shell files/registry/DCL procedures • Icons • DOS .bat files
