Part No. B15920-01
This preface introduces you to the Oracle Database Lite Developer’s Guide, discussing the intended audience, documentation accessibility, and structure of this document.
This manual is intended for application developers as the primary audience and for database administrators who are interested in application development as the secondary audience.
Our goal is to make Oracle products, services, and supporting documentation accessible, with good usability, to the disabled community. To that end, our documentation includes features that make information available to users of assistive technology. This documentation is available in HTML format, and contains markup to facilitate access by the disabled community. Accessibility standards will continue to evolve over time, and Oracle is actively engaged with other market-leading technology vendors to address technical obstacles so that our documentation can be accessible to all of our customers.
