I'm a student busy with a project. Please tell me the difference between Oracle and SQL and which one is better than the other?

Also,if I have a problem with slow internet access which one would you recommend between:
1. Setup a PC for emailing and accessing internet via ISDN. Please include costs related on setting up a PC with ISDN, applications to be used and security (firewalls).
2. Creating a new bandwidth.

Your assistance will be highly appreciated.

Thank you.

The difference is...

by jbeaule In reply to SQL vs ORACLE

Sql is well, its SQL, simple as that. You enter a query then type enter and there goes the result. All in text of course.

Oracle is the more advanced form of SQL (or should I say different). With a GUI and new additions to syntax and code, called PLSQL. I have worked on both, Oracle is like building a software with Visual Basic(put any other language you like here) with a SQL database. The UI looks ogrish and I have had a lot of reliability problems under win nt4.0, but that was a whileago. But if you want my advice, use SQL alone, much better.

Oracle vs SQL response

by pcvignal In reply to SQL vs ORACLE


I am not sure whether your question is complete since Oracle uses SQL as a programming language to query data stored into the Oracle database.

To clarify, comparing Oracle to SQL is like comparing a car, like a Peugeot 205 and its engine!

Oracle is the Peugeot and SQL is the engine. Oracle is database brand like Mercedes is a car brand and SQL is the language used in most databases.

However there different tastes of SQL according to the database brands such as:
- Oracle, Sybase, SQL server ...
