Don't now if its a right place to ask, so if not please give me a hint. I need some software that do can emulate how Oracle works with disks (Notice: Not the Oracle workload tool). I've already took a look at solutions kinda Benchmark Factory (Quest Software), SwingBench, etc., but they do not emulate.

Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Oracle Database XE) is an entry-level, small-footprint database based on the Oracle Database 10g Release 2 code base that's free to develop, deploy, and distribute

I think you should learn English a little better - my question is not about DB, but about oracle emulator. Thank you for now. – jammy Oct 13 '10 at 16:29

but ... Why? When you can have Express Edition for 100% compatibility, why go for a emulator with quirks or just doesn't work? – J-16 SDiZ Nov 8 '10 at 3:27
