From what I learned about JDBC you can use any database that does the job. I am wondering what the advantages would be to use Oracle. Isn't it more expensive?

Oh yeah, it's a LOT more expensive. You should use it only if its a major project that is mission-critical for the business. Otherwise, consider using other DBMSes such as mySQL which is I think 3 times faster than Oracle.
