Is there an enterprise database edition of 10g version 2 that I may download and install as a full-time student for educational purposes only? That is the version (10.2.0.5 database) that goes with the exercises in the book. The assignment is to install it and then perform all the exercises associated with that database. Thank you very much for any assistance you can give me!
10gR2 is no longer available for public download. The 11gR2 (126.96.36.199) version available at Oracle Database Software Downloads | Oracle Technology Network | Oracle </title><meta name="Title" co… will also suffice for your purposes
It is not a question of a good or bad soul - pl review the answers already provided. If you have a paid support contract with Oracle Support, pl open an SR with them and they will provide you with the 10.2.0.5 media. If you do not have a paid support contract with Oracle Support, you will have to use 11gR2 available in the link provided above.
I do not need support (bug fixes) for the 10g product, just the product so I can learn appropriately with the proper tools. This is for educational purposes obviously for two courses. Thank you.
So use 11g.
And if your course is being taught explicitly on 10g, using 10g-specific features, then given the point at which 10g is in its life cycle, I'd seriously question the value of the course itself and the institution serving it up.
It is highly unlikely that any requirement of your course is going to be dependent on something that was removed from Oracle in moving from 10g to 11g. Off-hand, I can't even think of any such functions/features.
Does your company use oracle 10g, Ed?
What bearing does that have on your question, e1c40e72-6a2f-4751-a148-69735e2c9206?
If you are trying to asses my qualifications to comment on 10g, just rest assured that I have worked with every version of Oracle from 7.3 through 11.2, inclusive, on both Windows and several flavors of *nix.
BTW, it would be really helpful if you would go to your profile and give yourself a recognizable name. It doesn't have to be your real name, just something that looks like a real name. Who says my name is really Ed Stevens? But at least when people see that on a message they have a recognizable identity. Unlike the system generated name of 'e1c40e72-6a2f-4751-a148-69735e2c9206', which is like going to the pub with a bag over your head.
