I am working on Oracle spatial 11g and I am referring to Oracle docs as a learning resource.

Does anyone know any more Oracle Spatial tutorials ?

We want to integrate Oracle Spatial data with ArcGIS & QGIS.

Any help will be great!! Thanks in advance : )

Your need to learn ArcSDE too if using ArcGIS and Oracle Spatial... 10.1 can support no SDE connections - see… – Mapperz Feb 13 '13 at 14:35

I realize this is an old thread, but I would start with this excellent pdf for the conceptual aspects:

Getting Started with Oracle Spatial by Tim Armitage

Then move onto the dev guide (11gR2 here, about 900 pages worth):

Oracle® Spatial Developer's Guide 11g Release 2 (11.2)

At that point you'll be informed enough to integrate Oracle Spatial professionally into any Desktop GIS application. Specifically for ArcGIS, here's the ground rules and documentation for using SDO_Geometry within ArcSDE geodatabases:

How do geodatabases use Oracle Spatial?

Thank you! Navigating Oracle docs, when one is an oracle noob is painful and frustrating. Your direct links are quite welcome. – Devdatta Tengshe Sep 18 '14 at 2:37
