Purpose

On 12c, Oracle XML DB is now a mandatory component of Oracle Database.

You cannot uninstall it, and if Oracle XML DB is not already installed in your database prior to an upgrade to Oracle Database 12c or later, then it is automatically installed in tablespace SYSAUX during the upgrade.

If Oracle XML DB has been automatically installed, and if you want to use Oracle XML DB, then after the upgrade operation, you must set the database compatibility to at least 12.1.0.1. If the compatibility is less than 12.1.0.1 then an error is raised when you try to use Oracle XML DB.
