How do I automatically create a database in Oracle using a VB app?

I have an application in Visual Basic involving Oracle as the database. While setting up the application, I want the database to be created automatically. How do I do that?

There are two ways to handle this, depending on what you have installed on the machine. If you have the Oracle command line SQL processing tools, you can include a SQL script that you'll spawn off to do the creation. If the command line tools are not available, you'll probably need to write a custom DLL or EXE that will connect using the Oracle database driver DLLs and do the table creation in your own code.
