OracleXE 11g – finally
The wait for OracleXE 11g is closing to an end, Oracle announced OracleXE 11.2 Beta, available for Windows x32 and Linux x64. I can’t remember if Oracle published public beta for OracleXE 10g at all!? It certainly seems a right thing to do, to offer Oracle community a chance to put the new release through realistic tests. Enjoy downloading and installing!
[Update] The rumor was that Apex 4 will not ship together with the OracleXE 11g, at least in beta this is not true.
According to license agreement from documentation set, Oracle raised the database size limit from 4GB to 11GB, 1 instance per physical server, 1 CPU and 1GB RAM remains unchanged restrictions, which I found reasonable.
