What is difference between language of (SQl ) oracle & MYSQL?

hi , folks
In my school they thought me SQL (oracle 9i/10g). which uses SQL plus if i am correct. Now this year they thougth just a brief introduction of MYSQL . just defination . In which they said MYSQL uses SQL .even oracle too. uses SQL so is their any difference between SQL(language.) of oracle and SQL of MYSQL .😕
Like in oracle if we want to create table we type.
SQl:create table Emp_south (
empno  number(3) ) ;
😉
so is their any difference of language like vb and c++.

hi safwan,

according to my knowledge

oracle and mysql are DBMS (i.e database management systems) and any dbms system

needs some mechanism to make a connection with the database and to retrive data

from the database and manage database so for the same both oracle and mysql use sql

(i.e structered query language) to retrive data from the database so sql is just a query

language to manage the database .

so there is no diffrence between sql of oracle and mysql

but there is a diffrence between oracle and mysql that is oracle is vendorbased that is

it product of microsoft and mysql is opensource.

SQL uses Windows Platform but we can use mySQL to rum on both Windows and Linux Servers the main advantage is it's open source and we use mySql with PHP to have a better web application mate...

@ faizan i think oracle itself is a company it may be third party partner of microsoft but its not microsofts company. any yes, your right about differences but i want actually language. which is used by both.

The difference is, how the data is organized in memory,And other difference is How they providing security,reliability,scalability etc..MySQL use its own methodolgy to organize the data.And oracle uses its own.

@safwan & @ms_cs - There are differences in syntax.

In fact each DBMS like (Oracle series, MySQL, SQL Server, et al) have their own minor differences with each other. So in order to have a common standard, you have ANSI SQL which is what safwan is asking about.

Read more about it here SQL - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hope this clarifies things.

SQL stands for "Structured Query Language", and is just a definition of a computer language that can be used to access data stored in relational databases. SQL is not itself a standalone computer application, but is rather part of many relational DB programs such as MySQL, Oracle, Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server, etc.

MySQL is an actual computer application you can download and install. It is the most popular open-source database management system. In addition to having an SQL interpreter, MySQL also has a database manager component, GUI database viewers, session monitoring tools, etc.

The difference between SQL and MySQL would be similar to the difference between C++ and the Visual C++ IDE; the first is just a language and the second is an actual tool that can be used to work in that language. Or similarly, the difference between HTML and Dreamweaver; HTML is just a web page standard, while Dreamweaver is a software that lets you create and edit and view web pages and web sites
