oracle is "free" so to speak. you only buy a license when you start selling/using your app you develop.

I am running 9i on my laptop. It takes about 2 GB of binaries. Add additional 500 MB for database files and you are up to 2.5 GB.

Notre that I installed a whole bunch of components, including java VM, GUI tools,... It is  safe bet that you can do it with less if you are careful with component selection. Probably the database data files can be reduced too... The largest file of my database belongs to system tablespace and has 200 MB.

If you are not an OTN member yet, you'll need to resister. If you are serious with Oracle, you'll need this anyway...

I would pick the 10g - it's the latest and the greatest. However it is probably more resource hungry than 9i.

To run J2EE you will also need Applicatin Server... I think - I am not really familiar with J2EE. But you'll find huge amount of J2EE resources, downloads and examples on:
