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 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
