Depends on what you want to know. If you want to use jdbc on Oracle, take a look at technet.oracle.com. They have a lot of sample code, which may not be pretty, but can be illustrative, nontheless.
If you want to be an Oracle DBA, this is the wrong forum, buy the O'Rielly book.
Cheers,
Robert

Start with database theory and then move into a particular DBMS.

I have the same problem. I want to learn to develop for oracle database and downloaded oracle 8i at home, installed it on my windows NT 4 workstation. However, I am stopped at here, do not know how to proceed. I thought it would have a default user, but do not know the user name and password, any pointer to the right direction is greatly appreciated.
My eventual goal is to develop for Database.
Thanks

I found the O'Reilly "Oracle Essentials" book to be a good starting point. It gets kind of nauseatingly pro-Oracle ("Oracle invented client-server programming"), but it does have the goods.
