Running oracle sql developer for first time

i downloaded the free edition of Oracle SQL Developer for 32-bit Windows (This zip file includes the JDK1.6.0_11) - though i run 64bit - windows 7

After extraction, i double click sqldeveloper.exe

under new connection window

what should be my inputs for connection name, username, password,hostname, port, sid

when i give sample inputs and test for connection it throws "Status : Failure -Test failed: IO Error: The Network Adapter could not establish the connection"

please tell me how to establish a successful connection

  1. SQL Developer is simply an IDE and management tool for Oracle SQL Databases. If you do not have an Oracle SQL Database then SQL Developer is of no real use to you.
  2. so before i install SQL developer, i should install oracle SQL database?

    if yes, where do i find oracle SQL database?
