As an SDO user, you have (at least) three ways of establishing a Tuscany SDO runtime environment on your machine. In decreasing order of likelihood, you can either
If you are going to take either of the latter two approaches you will need to establish a development environment.
For examples of how to use SDO, you can look at the documents or at the samples. If you have downloaded the source distribution, the sample code will be part of that distribution. If however you have downloaded a binary distribution, you'll need to go and download the sample source code as a separate archive.
Other sources of inspiration might come from the use of SDO within the Tuscany DAS and SCA code. When you come across issues, please look at and/or post to the Tuscany mailing lists.
The SDO Specification 2.1 for Java describes the data programming interface for Java language.
The following articles published by Tuscany committers, Kelvin Goodson and Geoffrey Winn, in Java Developer Journal provide a quick view of SDO concepts accompanied by a sample code for a real scenario.
