It's raining Development VBOX images!

Finding the install for Database, SOA to be complicated? Sick of giving your credit card info to cloud vendors, only to be stuck in a sandbox where you can't connect to your own internal systems? Are you new to Java and just wanted something technical to sink your teeth into? Or maybe you just want to put some stuff on that new terabyte drive you got? ;)
Have no fear. VirtualBox is here. We've have several development (read: don't use in production) images that were designed for use for in-person events, but we're posting them for your enjoyment. Some of the images have step by step hands on labs baked into them too! So get a freeware download manager like BitComet, install VirtualBox, and get wet!
We currently have Oracle Enterprise Linux - based images for :
1.) Java = JDK, NetBeans, GlassFish, Java FX runtime
2.) Database = Database 11gR2, TimesTen, XML DB, SQL Dev and Data Modeler, APEX, and JDEV.
3.) SOA = Database XE, WebLogic, SOA Suite, BPM Suite, BAM, B2B and JDeveloper
