We're looking to purchase Oracle Database - Standard Edition plus Oracle's Internet Application Server. Any advice on how to go about this? Do we go directly through Oracle, use one of Oracle's Partners, or some third-party reseller?

Just a guess, Oracle's the sole answer for licenses.  It's difficult for me to imagine the Big O (blessed be they) would stand for any competition from partners and such.

Like buying anything else:
Shop around.  Get quotes from several sources.

Just make sure the folks providing the quotes are licensed to sell Oracle products.  Many of their partners are 'Value Added'.  Not sure if they can resell base products if they add no value in the process.

For example, whenever I wish to attend classes from Oracle Education, I can typically find a better price through a reseller than directly from Oracle because of their volume pricing.
