Oracle Database 11g Express Edition Beta - Feedback Needed!
By oracletechnet on Apr 01, 2011
Generally speaking we do not post product-oriented news here, but this particular news is so closely tied to the OTN community that we can't resist.
Just as you expect, Oracle Database 11g XE brings you an entry-level, small-footprint RDBMS based on the Oracle Database 11g Release 2 code base that's free to develop on, deploy, and distribute. It's a great way to get started with 11g Release 2 features like Edition-Based Redefinition!
If you want to revisit what those features are, Arup Nanda's "Top Features" series is a great way to go!
