Outdated: Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (XE) Installation

This section describes how to download, install, and start Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (XE).

Oracle is now offering a free release called Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (XE), which is a great starter database for any Java JDBC developers who wants to try it on their own system.

Here is what I did to download and install Oracle Database 10g Express Edition on my Windows XP system:

1. Go to the Oracle Express Edition page.

2. Download the Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Universal) - Multi-byte Unicode database for all language deployment, with the Database Homepage user interface available in the following languages: Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.

3. Save the download file, OracleXEUniv.exe (216,933,372 bytes), to a temporary directory.

4. Double click on OracleXEUniv.exe. Follow the installation wizard to finish the installation. Remember to change the destination directory, set the SYTEM password and take some notes like:

SYSTEM password: Yang
Destination Folder: C:\local\oraclexe\
Port for 'Oracle Database Listener': 1521
Port for 'Oracle Services for Microsoft Transaction Server': 2030
Port for HTTP Listener: 8080

To start Oracle XE server, Click on Start > All Programs > Oracle Database 10g Express Edition > Start Database.

To stop Oracle XE server, Click on Start > All Programs > Oracle Database 10g Express Edition > Stop Database.
