When I opened page 42 of the programmer’s paradise catalog, I noticed, and for the the first time, that Oracle has a Database 11g edition called Standard Edition One. By the way, I did not order the catalog and I do not know how it ended up in my mailbox.
While looking at the Standard Edition One, I saw that there was also a
fourth fifth edition, the Oracle Database Personal Edition. There is a chapter in the Oracle database 11g documentation that describes the four five editions and the features available with each. There is also this Editions page on the Oracle Wiki.
But what about Oracle Lite? Why is it not called a database edition as well?
