Anyone using Oracle as DB?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello, I was just wondering if is there anyone using Oracle database(XE) for the server, and if so, any help on setting it up?

Edit: OracleXE just for learning purposes.

Thanks!

I think, Oracle DB cost so much that its bad idea. No one wants to pay a lot of money only for SLA on enterprice solution.

Maybe you should to look at PostgreSQL, that DB is similar on Oracle, its free and a lot of people use it. It's easy to find PostgreSQL setting up guide and you can learn basics, that will be relevant in Oracle DB.

OracleXE is free (even for commercial use) and it corresponds with a previous Oracle stable version, the drawback is that you don't get neither support nor frequent updates.

I agree with you that it is more interesting to go for MySQL or another free option, however Oracle is a subject in a course I'm doing :).

You should be able to use it just like you would use it without a server. Just add the dependency for it and use it, then make sure the db server is on.
