Pre-built Oracle VirtualBox Images
By james.bayer on Dec 03, 2010
I’m thrilled to see that Justin Kestelyn has a post that pre-built Oracle VirtualBox images are now available on OTN. There are VMs for various Oracle software stacks including one for Database, one for Java with Glassfish, and one for SOA and BPM products that includes WebLogic Server.
This is just one example of the synergy of a combined Oracle and Sun delivering improvements for customers. These VMs make it even more straight-forward to get started with Oracle software in a development environment without having to worry about initial software installation and configuration.
I’ve been a bit quiet lately on the blogging front, but I’m currently working on another area leveraging the best of Oracle and Sun. Oracle is uniquely positioned to deliver engineered systems that optimize the entire stack of software and hardware. You’ve probably seen the announcements about Exalogic and I’m excited about the potential to deliver major advancements for middleware. More to come…
