Oracle Flashback

Hello Experts:

This might be the easiest question place out here, but I need to ask to make sure I am telling my manager the what is certain.  I am in charge of three Oracle servers, I am learning as I go, and I just found out about the flashback feature.  He thinks we need to pay extra for it in Oracle 11gR2.  I told him that it is included in Oracle 11gR2.  

I hope I did not speak too fast.  Is flashback included, free of extra charge, in Oracle 11gR2?

Thanks.

Flashback is included in oracle 11GR2 Enterprise Edition. Other versions do not have it

You will notice that extra cost options are marked as such, but Flashback is not, so if you have 11GR2 EE, you are good to go

Thanks for you response.  Unfortunately, we have Oracle 11gR2 Standard Edition.  

Based on what I found in the information provided in your link, I will try to use Oracle Database Personal Edition to play with flashback.  At least to learn it for future reference.

Thanks a lot.

I believe the options referenced in the above link are the Database Administration Features.

I think the Application Development Features like Flashback Query are available in all versions and included.
