Most popular distros have a live version that can run from a flash drive 
without installing. You can also do a persistent install to a thumb 
drive and then run virtualbox or the like from that distro for testing 
purposes. Debian with xfce or lxde makes a really good host system for 
VB in my opinion. VB is also available for Windows. Oracle does have 
some images prebuilt for developing Java and such that include Oracle 
Linux and any number of Java and DB tools. Any site other than the 
official OS project site for images would seem dubious to me.
