Download and install Oracle XE database on your PC

An excerpt from the book Create Rapid Web Applications Using Oracle Application Express - Second Edition
Assuming you are using Windows XP SP2 or later, follow the sequence mentioned below to download Oracle Express Edition Database 11g Release 2:

1. Click here to download Oracle XE Database

2. Accept the License Agreement.

3. Click on the link Oracle Database Express Edition 11g Release 2 for Windows x32.

4. Enter your Username and Password. If you don't have an account, sign up for a free Oracle Web account and repeat the download process.

5. Save File OracleXE112_Win32.zip on your computer.

6. Once downloaded, extract the .zip file, and launch the Setup file from the extracted Disk1 folder to start installation.

7. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

NOTE: During the installation you are required to enter and confirm SYSTEM user password. Provide a password that you can easily remember since you’ll need it in subsequent sections. I set it to manager. The Summary page provides the APEX port, 8080, as shown in the following figure. Your Installation might have configured a different port. This port is used in the URL to connect to the APEX environment like this: http://localhost:8080/apex
