If you want to delete a user account and its associated schema, you can log in as SYSTEM and use the DROP USER command as shown in the following example:

>.\bin\sqlplus /nolog

SQL> connect SYSTEM/fyicenter
Connected.

SQL> DROP USER DEV CASCADE;
User dropped.

SQL> CREATE USER DEV IDENTIFIED BY developer ACCOUNT UNLOCK;
User created.

Note that CASCADE tells the server drop the associated schema.
