Download Oracle XE - it can hold up to 11G of data and is quite simple to install and use.

best of all - it's completely free (as in no cost - even for production use)

If you're not into installing a database yourself, you could get a pre-built appliance from Oracle for testing purposes, running in Oracle Virtual Box, includes database, sql developer etc:

A "B" is a penalty, an "A" is the expected grade unless you have asked for additional information and either didn't get a response or you received an incomplete or incorrect response.

And, if you award a penalty, you are also expected to explain what was missing and/or wrong.

this is still an inappropriate close.

If there are duplicate posts, you should pick the first one.
If multiple posts are close in time to be considered almost simultaneous then a split is ok.
