i'm a student, and i have a litle project to do, which require oracle based database. Application must be available on the web. Did you now any free or cheap hosting that offers it?
Have you had a look at apex.oracle.com ? It's a free development environment for Oracle's Application Express product. "Oracle provides apex.oracle.com as an evaluation service free of charge."
Going to another level, look at Amazon's free usage tier. It should be sufficient to host an Oracle Express Edition database. Personally, I would develop the application locally, deploy to the free usage tier to test functionality. Then maybe upgrade the instance to something with a little more grunt for any lecturer evaluation.
