A complete sandbox installation for VirtualBox... Thanks to Developer Days!
Oracle is supplying some ready-to-run downloadable VMs including Operating Systems, OSes with Oracle already installed and ready-to-run RAC systems. I was hoping to leverage these to save some time for sandbox environments but from what I have seen so far they are only for the enterprise level Oracle VM product. I only have the horsepower to run Oracle VirtualBox which is their workstation level product. It seems they use different formats for each product and while it may be possible to convert VMs backs and forth, I'm just not up for it right now.
I did find an Oracle Developer Days VM for VirtualBox that includes a lot of great up to date products preinstalled including:
- 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 4.0
- Oracle JDeveloper
- Hands-On-Labs (accessed via the Toolbar Menu in Firefox)
I'm overjoyed and I am downloading it right now. This will save me a lot of time especially if I end up trashing the VM.
