Oracle Database 11g Express Edition (11.2) Beta

In this article we will learn how to install 11g Express edition 11.2 Beta on linux x86_64 bit.

Limitations:

1.If Oracle Database XE is installed on a computer with more than one CPU (including dual-core CPUs), then it will consume, at most, processing resources equivalent to one CPU

2.Only one installation of Oracle Database XE can be performed on a single computer

3.The maximum amount of user data in an Oracle Database XE database cannot exceed 11 gigabytes

4.The maximum amount of RAM that an Oracle Database XE database uses cannot exceed 1 gigabyte, even if more is available

Oracle Database XE is a great starter database for:
  • Developers working on PHP, Java, .NET, XML, and Open Source applications
  • DBAs who need a free, starter database for training and deployment
  • Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and hardware vendors who want a starter database to distribute free of charge
  • Educational institutions and students who need a free database for their curriculum

Installing Oracle Database XE:

Log on to your computer with root permissions.

[root@oraexpress u01]# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),1(bin),2(daemon),3(sys),4(adm)

Run the Oracle Database XE executable oracle-xe-11.2.0-0.5.x86_64.rpm to install Oracle Database XE.
