Just a quick post on something I was working on, my father passed away suddenly yesterday so I don’t have as much time to put into this post as I had hoped. Anyways, over the holiday I put together a quick Ubuntu VMWare virtual machine with Oracle XE, the new 11g Technical Preview 3 jDeveloper release and the SOA suite. Over the last week I uploaded it to Amazon S3 and am now distributing it as a torrent. Here are the links to the four torrent files (Amazon doesn’t let you compress multiple files into a single torrent).
It is a VMWare virtual machine, personally I still like VMWare because I can run it on my laptop and take it with me anywhere. Oracle VM has its place in the server room, but not on the desktop, yet. It can be used by anyone with VMWare Player (www.vmware.com) for free.
The username and password for the machine is : oracle / oraclevms
These are torrents so please continue to seed them after your downloads are complete, this is the only way I’ll be able to afford to keep them online for people. If you are new to torrents check out http://support.bittorrent.com/ there you will find all the info you need, or just ask one of your pirate friends and I’m sure they can help you out. Admittedly the VM isn’t as nicely put together or as small as I normally do, but due to the circumstances I hope people can understand. I may be offline for a few days, but enjoy the download. This is my trial run for the bigger Oracle/VMware torrent site I hope to have together soon. Thanks to everyone helping with it, we’ll be launched shortly.
