Installing Oracle Database 10g Express Edition and Changing the Default HTTP Port

Oracle logoIn this article I will write about installing the Oracle Database 10g XE on Windows and changing the default port number for HTTP and optionally for FTP. The installer does not provide any customization option and you end up with the DB server instantly up and running reserving the port 1521 (a default for Oracle database servers), including an embedded HTTP listener set to a default port of 8080 which might conflict with some existing Java application servers or servlet containers such as Tomcat, JBoss Application Server and Glassfish which use the same port by default. Although it’s easy to start and stop the Oracle database with the shortcuts pre-installed in the Start menu, its http listener remains “on” at all times with no shortcut to be turned on and off easily.

In my case I already have Tomcat and Glassfish which are set to use the 8080 port as well, so I will show you how to modify the port number of Oracle 10g XE as I go along.

About APEX or what I would normally call Oracle 10g XE

Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Oracle Database XE also goes by an abbreviated code name APEX) is an entry-level, small-footprint database based on the Oracle Database 10g Release 2 code base that’s free to develop, deploy, and distribute; fast to download; and simple to administer. Oracle Database XE is a great starter database for:

  • Developers working on PHP, Java, .NET, XML, and Open Source applications
  • DBAs who need a free, starter database for training and deployment
  • Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and hardware vendors who want a starter database to distribute free of charge
  • Educational institutions and students who need a free database for their curriculum.

With Oracle Database XE, you can now develop and deploy applications with a powerful, proven, industry-leading infrastructure, and then upgrade when necessary without costly and complex migrations.

Advanced Oracle PL/Sql: Programming With Packages

Product Description
Steven Feuerstein’s first book, Oracle PL/SQL Programming, has become the classic reference to PL/SQL, Oracle’s procedural extension to its SQL language. His new book looks thoroughly at one especially advanced and powerful part of the PL/SQL language — the package. The use of packages can dramatically improve your programming productivity and code quality, while preparing you for object-oriented development in Oracle technology. In this book, Feuerstein explains how to construct packages — and how to build them the right way. His “best practices” for building packages will transform the way you write packages and help you get the most out of the powerful, but often poorly understood, PL/SQL language. Much more than a book, Advanced Oracle PL/SQL Programming with Packages comes with a PC diskette containing a full-use software companion. Developed by Feuerstein, RevealNet’s PL/Vision Lite is the first of its kind for PL/SQL developers: . . . More >>

Modeling Business Objects with XML Schema

Product Description
XML Schema is the new language standard from the W3C and the new foundation for defining data in Web-based systems. There is a wealth of information available about Schemas but very little understanding of how to use this highly formal specification for creating documents. Grasping the power of Schemas means going back to the basics of documents themselves, and the semantic rules, or grammars, that define them. Written for schema designers, system architects, programmers, and document authors, Modeling Business Objects with XML Schema guides you through understanding Schemas from the basic concepts, type systems, type derivation, inheritance, namespace handling, through advanced concepts in schema design.

*Reviews basic XML syntax and the Schema recommendation in detail.
*Builds a knowledge base model step by step (about jazz music) that is used throughout the book.
*Discusses Schema design in larg. . . More >>
