From what I learned about
you can use any database that does the job. I am wondering what the advantages would be to use Oracle. Isn't it more expensive?

Oh yeah, it's a LOT more expensive. You should use it only if its a major project that is mission-critical for the business. Otherwise, consider using other DBMSes such as mySQL which is I think 3 times faster than Oracle.
Have you checked out

"oracle 9i Client" and "Oracle 9i personal edition"
No suitable driver using msql
SCWCD or OCP??
No proxy with session.load() instead it does a database hit - Why?
