Hi,

What is the difference in downloading Oracle software (not for commercial use) from
http://edelivery.oracle.com
or
http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/index.html



I can see a difference in format of files but is there any other differences?

For example for Oracle Database 10.2.0.1.0 :
http://edelivery.oracle.com/EPD/Download/get_form?egroup_aru_number=8944829

Vs
http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/index.html


Thanks and Regards,
Chetana

Many Thanks Michel

That was too quick!!

Just for clearing my understanding

It means downloading
Quote:
Oracle® Database 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.1.0) for Linux x86 DVD (Part 1 of 6)till (Part 6 of 6) (total 2587 MB) from edelivery.com

and
Quote:
10201_database_linux32.zip (668,734,007 bytes) (cksum - 2737423041) from http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/oracle10g/htdocs/10201linuxsoft.html

is the same.

In this case which is the preferred method or location from above for downloading and further installing Oracle Software?

I hope this question is not appearing sillier. I am just getting my doubt cleared

Thanks and Regards,
Chetana

The one you want or is used to use.
I used to download from OTN, so always get it from it.
I think if there is an update (in documentation for instance) in basic, it might be in OTN not the official eDelivery which as the commercial site, must guarantee to be stable.

Regards
Michel
