I have forgotten and searched for this cool VirtualBox Appliance, now so often that I found it time to make a small notepad/placeholder for this.
For those who haven’t found it yet, there is a OTN Developer VirtualBox appliance out there that is a great start-up environment to use as a test, presentation, try-out or development environment. Probably officially used for Oracle demo’s and or Hands on Exercises (HOL) but also very usable on a laptop.
Its a VirtualBox environment with Hands on Lab (HOL) exercises and the following software environment/software:
- Oracle Enterprise Linux 5
- Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition
- Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database Cache
- Oracle XML DB
- Oracle SQL Developer
- Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler
- Oracle Application Express
- Oracle JDeveloper
- Hands-On-Labs (accessed via the Toolbar Menu in Firefox)
Be aware that, as it is described as well on the download instruction page, that this appliance is for testing purposes only, as such it is unsupported and should not to be used in production environment. I really hope they make more of those cool VirtualBox example appliances.
