Reports 6i free download? - Reports

Is Reports 6i free? I downloaded it from Oracle's site, but I am not sure if it's an evaluation version or a free software. If it's an evaluation version, how long is the evaluation period? Thanks! 

Sorry, but Oracle Reports 6i is not free. It is available for
a 30 day trial/evaluation from OTN or you can purchase the CD's
from the Oracle Store.
Click on the Store link at the top of this OTN page for details
on the purchase and licensing costs.
Thanks for your interest in Oracle Reports!

OTN Subscription

Hi all,
Our company used to have an Oracle subscription. We used to pay a annual fee and Oracle would send us the developer edition of the latest Oracle products on CD. However, we unsubsribed in year 2003 and now I could not seem to be able to find out where to subscribe again.
My questions are:
1. Is this subscription part of OTN subscription?
2. Where can I subscribe again? Who should I contact? BTW, we are located in Ontario, Canada.
3. I understand there are free downloads on OTN, but we still prefer CD. Is there any option to order the developer edition of the latest Oracle Products on CD?
Thanks a lot.

Sorry, this program ("TechTracks") is no longer available. CDs ("Media Packs") are available under a Trial License from the Oracle Store:
Cheers, OTN

Where can I download the Oracle 8.1.7

Where can I download the Oracle 8.1.7? I know it is not available in the Oracle official website. I try to find it in the OTN website also but I can't. If you know, please let me know the hyperlink of downloading the software. I am an OCP member and I am notified from other forums that I can download it from the Oracle Intrenet website. Can anyone give me the link? 
Hi, samouhk
Oracle 8i has been desupported for a long time and when Oracle desupports products it no longer makes them available for download. The earliest version you will be Oracle9i.

You can contact your Oracle Sales rep, and ask them to assist you in getting a copy.
You can open a Service Request with Oracle Support, to request a copy of the software.
You can contact your local Oracle user group to see whether one of the friendly locals has a copy you can borrow.
You can always monitor eBay for the occasional set of CDs. (For example, 8.0.5 for Solaris appeared today.)
However, as far as I know, once it has become obsolete you simply can not download it from an Oracle site.

Download or Buy OTN Tech Tracks

I am a newbie to oracle and wanna learn it.
My questions are:
If I'm gonna download from your website does it mean that I'm only allowed to use the software for 30 days? or simply the software will not work auto after the trial period?
If I'm going to buy the OTN tech tracks CD does it mean that I can use the software for a year or two?
Thanks for your questions...
Firstly, the software that you can get from OTN is not "time bombed" and is same whether you get a physical CD or download.
Secondly, the license covering software from OTN is the OTN "Developer" license. Please make sure you read all[] of the license before accepting. In summary the OTN developer license allows you to "...use the programs only for purposes of developing and prototyping your applications, and not for any other purpose...".
The OTN "Developer" license again covers both the OTN software downloads AND the software CD's that are part of the OTN tech tracks.
I hope this helps - OTN Team


I am trying to download Oracle 9i personal edition for Win 2000 for my home pc to allow me to practice/learn the software.
I have been told by one of your sales reps that the only way to get the software for educational purposes is to download it from
as this will provide me with a license that will not expire and allow me to use the software for education purposes for as long as I want. I was told there was no way to purchase the software on cd from the UK as that would mean having to purchase a cd pack from the online Oracle store United Kingdom (which I am happy to pay for) , BUT the license would only last 30 days, after which I would have to purchase a license. Unfortunately I am having serious problems downloading the software as I only have a dial up connection and on several occasions errors keeping occurring during downloads.
Considering these problems is there no way to buy the oracle 9i personal edition software with an educational license as offered on
Your help would be highly appreciated as until I get the software I can't really learn it.
Please advise.


As a developer, I want to learn Oracle database, JDeveloper and other Oracle products.
If I download these, are these Free Licenses?
What License agreement I have with Oracle for these downloads?
when you download a software from OTN, you must read and accept the OTN licensing terms. OTN licensing terms are displayed prior to downloading a software.
hope this proves useful
