      Oracle and Java are 2 different thgnis.Oracle is a type of RDBMS (relational database management system), simply put, it allows you to store data (possibly user information) to a certain file storage that can be retrieved anytime.Other types of RDBMS are MS SQL, MySQL, IBM DB2 etc.Java is an object oriented programming language. It allows you to create different applications. Considering your question, it allows you to create a program to access a certain Oracle DB file and retrieve/manipulate its data.Other types of programming language are C++, C, Cobol etc. -1
