Difference between Oracle and SQL :-

Usage of database depends on certain factors, No Of Users concurrently using it, Load of Database etc.

If it is a simple web application free database like MySQL is enough, but it is not advisable in mission critical applications. Obviously, Oracle is platform dependant but as it is a backend, it matters, only if you have not chosen an operating system .SQL Server can handle upto 1-1.5 TB AND THERE IS NO LIMIT FOR oRACLE

Dear Abhay, Hi !

Oracle is a relational database. Its a software package.

In Oracle we use SQL(Structured Query Language)...its a language made of english like words. With the help of SQL we retrive, update & modify records. eg. SELECT * FROM EMPLOYEE; is an SQL .

hi, if you are asking about difference between sql server and oracle then the main diference is that oracle is platform independent and it runs in unix also, but sql server being a microsoft product is not!!it only runs in window!
