I want to apologize because i believe that this question is already consumed, but please give it a chance. I've started practicing on a Oracle DB 11g XE.

I'm following the tutorial from Oracle Docs . And i see that the preferred way to manage the backup/recovery processes is by using RMAN . I've started practicing with it (i mean, by SQL*Plus CLI). But i really don't see how can i automatize the process. Then i saw that in SQL Developer DBA panel, there are some options for working with RMAN. I really don't understand how to use them (i didn't even create e backup) and i couldn't find any tutorial about that. So can somebody show me the way how to manage automatic backups through SQL Developer? Of course if there is a way how to achieve this. If not, what do you suggest me?
