Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Oracle Database XE) is an entry-level, small-footprint (150MB) database based on the Oracle Database 10g Release 2 code base that�s free to develop, deploy, and distribute; fast to download; and simple to administer. Oracle Database XE is a great starter database for:

  • Developers working on PHP, Java, .NET, 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

With Oracle Database XE, currently available as a Beta release for Windows and Linux, you can now develop and deploy applications with a powerful, proven, industry-leading infrastructure, and then upgrade when necessary without costly and complex migrations. A production release is scheduled for late 2005.

Oracle Database XE can be installed on any size host machine with any number of CPUs, but this free version of the world�s leading database will store up to 4GB of user data, use up to 1GB of memory, and use one CPU on the host machine.
