I am using Oracle 10g Express Edition. I want to enable the streams feature in my current edition. However, when I searched on the net I couldn't find any information regarding streams setup on Oracle XE

Can anyone tell me which version of Oracle supports streams? Is it only the Enterprise Edition that supports it? If yes how can I add streams support to my express or standard editions

XE does not support Streams, as officially documented. SE and SE1 support Streams but without redo capture. EE and PE (Personal Edition) fully support Streams, and also support Logical Standby.
