Looking at Oracle Express after a long break

The version I am now looking at is Oracle 11G Express. It is also entry level like its predecessor 10G, free with a small foot print. If you are looking at getting acquainted with Oracle you may sample the express which is based on the Oracle 11g Release 2 code base. The download link is here:

The last express version of Oracle I looked at was 10G XE. Here are the links (earliest last) to my previous Oracle 10G XE articles. It is possible some links are broken.

In many cases, exporting a table to create an XML file is easy, but importing an XML file to create a table is much more difficult. This is true for Oracle 10G XE, as you will see in the following article:

Queries are quantitative questions you pose to a database. Questions such as "how many employees make more than $20,000.00 a year?" or "which employee has worked for more than two years?" are typical examples. In some cases, to answer questions like the ones above, you may go no further than looking it up in one table. However some questions may need more than one table, and it is not uncommon that several tables must be used to provide the answer. Here is how you query multiple tables in Oracle.

This tutorial describes a table to be created in the HR database with all the necessary ingredients for a typical database. This article shows you how.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
