Oracle XE is fairly simple to install. Setting up an entire instance, with an updated version of APEX, can be quite daunting for new users. The OXAR (pronounced "Oscar") project contains a build script to allow users to easily build a new VM with Oracle XE, APEX, ORDS, Node.js, and lots of other useful tools for developers who want to quickly get an instance up and running.
Software pre-installed includes:
- Oracle XE 11g R2
- Oracle APEX
- Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS)
- Oracle Node.js driver (node-oracledb)
This project also has it's own YouTube playlist with helpful videos on how to use and install this project.
