What is Oracle XE

  • Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Oracle Database XE) is an entry-level, small-footprint 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

    • GIS users and administrators needing to move their data outside of the standard GeoMedia Access warehouse


Why We Like It

  • Completely free

  • Comes with Oracle Locator

  • Supported by Oracle via the Oracle Express forum

    • Make sure to sign-up after installing the software

  • FAST and EASY to install

    • Took about three minutes to install on my desktop with one gigabyte of RAM

  • Relatively small footprint

    • Used a little over 100mb of RAM when initially started

  • Supports Oracle Workspace Manager*

    • Rumored that it can be installed but have not personally tested

  • Great way to get an introduction to Oracle

It’s A Beautiful Thing

One can load a table with geometry information and GeoMedia or GeoMedia Professional can natively read the information without ANY database setup!


Additional Resources - Books

  • Make sure to look at the Working with GeoMedia Professional documentation

  • Read the document that comes with the “GOOM_PKG and Oracle Scripts for Oracle 9i/10g” download from the Intergraph web site

  • Pro Oracle Spatial by Kothuri et al.
