Pre-built Developer VMs

Just downloaded and setup the database development VM running on VirtualBox.

How easy is that?

I did have a couple of versions of Oracle running on VMWare Fusion on my MacBook Pro.

Then it crashed and I lost a bunch of stuff that I haven’t got reinstalled yet.

Yes I’m an IT professional. No it wasn’t backed up. What’s your point? 😉

Anyway, these Virtual Box VMs – nice, easy. Cool.

And in a flash I’m running an environment with:

  • Oracle Enterprise Linux 5
  • Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition
  • Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database Cache
  • Oracle XML DB
  • Oracle SQL Developer
  • Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler
  • Oracle Application Express 4.0
  • Oracle JDeveloper
