11g Express Edition Wishlists @ XE forum

On Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (you will need an extra registration with your OTN account for this forum – please check http://otn.oracle.com/xe for details) forum I started some threads recently, each is related to an extension for the coming 11g XE.

So you may support the ones already opened or you may create new ones similar to these. Of course there is no guarantee that these will have an affect on Oracle’s decisions but why not trying :)

11g Express Edition Wishlist – Compression
11g Express Edition Wishlist – JVM as a separate download and install
11g Express Edition Wishlist – maximum storage to 20GB
11g Express Edition Wishlist – Point-in-time tablespace recovery
11g Express Edition Wishlist – More globalization support
11g Express Edition Wishlist – Maximum memory 2GB
11g Express Edition Wishlist – Database Control(Oracle Enterprise Manager)
11g Express Edition Wishlist – Flashback Table

  1. Interesting comment @ XE OTN forum –

    “Oracle 11g XE must compete directly against DB2 Express C9:

    *Unlimited Storage.
    *2 CPUS.
    *Memory 4GB.
    *Unlimited instances
    *32 and 64 bits.
    *Optional Replication.”

  2. John Hallas says:

    Any idea when 11g XE will be available?



  3. Since XE is not Oracle’s priority it is said to be available at least +6 months after 11g R2 is available for other editions, which I think will not be before 2010.

  4. Obviously you were not over optimistic by mentioning “not before 2010” :-)

    It is a shame to not provide anything newer than 10g…

  5. Hi Laurent, still 11g XE seems not to have a priority in Oracle’s To Do list unfortunately. At least there is still hope :)

  6. Hi Laurent, yes enjoying it, but all these wishlist thing was useless, as far as I see there no major change compared to 10g XE limitations?

  7. Indeed, cost of 1G ram was divided by 4 but they still sticked to 1G.

    It is a pain as the minimal memory to run a database increased
