Database Wisdom: Oracle

Chapter 1: Introduction, Acquisition and Installation

This chapter will provide some minimal background between the different versions of the databases that are covered. It explains where to get the software and documentation and provides and example of getting the software installed. Because many beginner programmers will not have access to official support methods (such as metalink for Oracle), I will also cover alternative sources for support.
