Oracle Database Express Edition SQL Developer

Hi all,
I did download the Oracle Database Express Edition from Oracle's website and am trying to create a new connection with the following info

Connection Name: myconnection
Username: ora21
Password: ora21
Hostname: localhost
Port: 1521
SID: orcl

Note: I even tried to use xe as the SID since it's a express edition but it keeps telling me test failed: ORA-01017: invalid/password; logon denied.

Could it be because it's an Express edition? Please advice as am a new DBA and am practising on my own
