    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    An ext4 file system is journaled, so the journal should be created when the file system is initialized (formatted). As for a file system to store an Oracle database, just about any will do, although for performance you might want to use a raw partition without a file system. Oracle will happily use such and by avoiding file system overhead, it can improve I/O performance significantly.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Oracle is a program just like any other, and there isn't a filesystem that cares what those programs store on it. Just pick the one that's best for you and that's that.

    Yes, ext4 automatically manages journal entries from the moment it's created. This is the same with all journaled filesystems: just format and go.
