Oracle 18c Express offline client installer

User_Q96IM Member Posts: 1 Green Ribbon

Hi. We are evaluating a product that are using oracle as backend database. In the evaluation process we are planning to use (Linux) Oracle 18c Express as database. However we can't find any offline installation packages for oracle client. Our system is not connected to the internet so it seems like we cannot use oracle instant client

So my question is: do we have to have a full license to download the oracle 18c client for linux as an offline installer? Or can we use the available Oracle 19c (full) Client? My understanding is that the big difference between oracle instant client and oracle (full) client is that the instant client only contains the files necessary to download the rest?
