"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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:

sdstuberCommented:
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.
