i am having some confusing in the following:-
1.why oracle 11g installation process is not like 8i,9i,10g, that they ask about sid name, userid and password but not in oracle 11g.
2. AS we open sqlplus in 8i,9i,10g white colored window, and first of all i had to enter the userid and password as scott/tiger but not in oracle 11g.
1. Oracle XE, unlike other versions of the database, uses a fixed SID (XE) so the installer only lets you set your SYS/SYSTEM password at install.
2. the white colored version was actually a deprecated application SQLPLUSW.EXE. if you google for sqlplusw.exe you will find many links discussing how to get it to work in 11g (not supported) or a range of alternative tools. for example SQLPLUSW.exe Not supplied with 11g
