    Oracle XE as virtual app (Docker/Vagrant)


      Oracle XE can freely be downloaded, but to avoid the hassle of installing the software it would be really nice if there was a simple way to get a working installation in no time.

      E.g. if you could do:

      vagrant init oracle/xe

      vagrant up

      and then have a running database version on with a few demo tables and a few demo users.

      As a developer it would be even better if you could have multiple versions running in parallel:

      vagrant init oracle/xe-18

      vagrant up

      vagrant init oracle/xe-11

      vagrant up

      maybe accessible as and respectively. This way it would be easy to test the software against different versions of Oracle.


      From a support perspective I think this may also be beneficial: No need to deal with installation issue.


      Is anyone working on this?
