Oracle 9i and the recently launched Oracle 10g. First you must know how relational database works before you are ready to think downloading it. Also you should learn SQL, the language of RDBMS, before you can use Oracle. You can browse http://otn.oracle.com for some info how to download binaries.
Any ideas about 11i install on Redhat 9? I am running into a small problem. I fixed it before but can't remember how I did it... (dumb me!)
Anyway, rapidwiz fails at "File System Check" . I created oracle, applmgr accts, dba group and even created entire dir struture and assigned full permissions... 777... still no luck.... Running the install as root.....
BiTurboMan: My experience in Oracle is in M$ platform, specifically Oracle8i and quite new in Oracle9i. Oracle11i?? got no idea man, sorry.
doublefailure: Oracle's stock price not going up since dot.com meltdown, probably because the whole industry is not yet that vibrant as before the crash occurs. For me Oracle is good, specially in the security aspect of the database.
Yes i heard of that. Oracle is having a shift from Unix to Linux based servers. Thats why im trying to learn Linux now to know/experience first hand the advantages in running Oracle in Linux based servers compared to M$ servers.
I am exactly doing the same thing. I have been working on Ms platform for over 7 years. For backend, there is really no comparison (if you really look at stability issue) between MS and Unix. As far as I know, most big businesses run their e-commerce / databases on a flavor of unix. Solaris made by Sun Microsystems is another flavor of unix. So is Linux. But Linux is taking off slowly. The stability is there now. Security is still an issue due to the open source nature. But vendors such as Redhat and others are packaging linux with their own versions so that's not that big of an issue any more either. Plus, you can change anything with this OS which gives a proficient person a huge advantage in the future. Linux / Unix is definitely something that people notice on a resume. So, learn it while you can! As far as Oracle 11i, it's their E-Business suite. For Financials, HRMS, CRM, SCM etc. They are what we call ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning software. They allow businesses to make deciscions and basically run their business.
