Standard Edition release 184.108.40.206 is now available. Download it from the usual locations. But along with the great news, comes some news that is not so great: the licensing model has changed.

It is free, no registration or email is required. I will just appreciate any kind of feedback to make it better.
The package comprises the following topics:

It gives me great pleasure and honour to announce my upcoming book Oracle Advanced PL/SQL Developer Professional Guide with Pact Publishers. The book 'Oracle Advanced PL/SQL Developer Professional Guide' is focussed on the preparation of OCP (1Z0-146) examination.

Information about Oracle licensing is not abundantly available. Most of us might not be familiar with Oracle licensing. This article provides information about Oracle Licensing Rules and Definitions.

Just testing things a bit. Sorry if you got spammed with this bog entry. I am posting at both OraFAQ and Oracle forums to try out the two interfaces for blog entries. Also trying blogspot.com and Google Sites.
If you have tried out the blogging and have a preference for one vs another, please let me know.

According to the Enterprise System Spectator's website Oracle is busy laying off a large number of employees. According to the article, 8000 people or 10-15% of the company's workforce will lose their jobs today. Apparently similar layoffs are happening at SAP, Infor and possibly several other companies.
