That is a very bad idea(TM). The overhead to start an Oracle instance per unit test is much too high. Plus, you would want a private instance for each test to avoid interference with each other. So that would mean to not only _start_ an instance on the fly but also to configure it on the fly.

I think a more successful approach is to look into using different schemas for that. Even that is still a bit costly but more manageable than the original approach.

Kind regards
