Are you using Oracle VM or Oracle Virtualbox? Those are different products, Oracle VM is a type 1 hypervisor, based on XEN, that installs on a bare metal machine. Virtualbox is an application that provides a type 2 hypervisor using VT/x technology. I see from you other post that you seem to be using Virtualbox. You might want to clear this first.
I guess Oracle VM VirtualBox and Oracle VM can be misleading. Oracle should better call it Oracle Virtualbox, without VM in the name. Fyi: http://www.oracle.com/us/technologies/virtualization/oraclevm/index.html
Anyway, a default installation of Oracle Linux or RHEL 6 does not install the X Window system and a graphical user desktop. If you want to run X11 applications you have 2 options:
- Use remote access from a system that has X Window server installed
- Install X Window and a window manager on your virtual machine.
If this is a new installation and you use it locally then I suggest to re-install the system and customize the package selection. You should see a prompt "customize now" during the installation where you can select the Desktop packages.

Oracle VM for x86 (Xen-based TYPE 1 hypervisor)
Oracle VM for SPARC (previously LDoms)
Oracle VM VirtualBox (TYPE 2 host based hypervisor)
"Oracle VM" denotes the product family, not a specific product.
