If you want to try JDBC only (not Oracle specific features), there are other options with lesser memory footprints like HSQLDB, Derby etc which are absolute free. Coming to Oracle, I think you can still download a trial version of it.

If memory serves Oracle Database Express Edition is available for free. And as long as you don't use it for commerical purposes, and training / learning is not a commerical purpose, it will stay free.

So, to answer the original question, yes.

Apparently this question isn't a joke. So let's move it from the forum where people are invited to treat it as a joke and put it into a more serious place.

I'd just add that this edition is free even for commercial use. See the licence agreement.

Thanks all. I have downloaded and have connected to the Derby DB via JDBC.

Thanks,
