i would say pretty fast, if rdbms fundas r clear then move to any rdbms is very swift, i never worked with oracle but had 4 yrs of SqlSrv, i didn't had any problems what so ever understanding and working with it ( though it might be a problem being a DBA) but as long as work with oracle was not a problem, with net being the biggest help in nay transition ------------------ -AJ Sun Certified Java Programmer Microsoft Certified Software Developer
I would agree. It shouldn't be a problem. As long as you understand (and really understand) the basic database theories, then it shouldn't really be a problem. Concentrate on logical design and let the software worry about the rest. >though it might be a problem being a DBA Ashish Jaiman, What did you mean by this?
Hi Vishaka Well do you have internet connection at house. If yes then visit to Oracle site or IBM Redbooks and start reading the books. In case you know some specific areas that you need to know then you can visit google.com or ask.com. Best sites i have seen. As far as the RDBMS concepts goes u need to know them.. The basic things. Then since you could use Visual Basic or Java as the front end you need to basically learn the PL/SQL fundas which you can master by reading O Rielly's PL/SQL. As far as working on the database goes then SQL Server is real cool as it does everything for you .. but one minute that is not the way you need to learn.. Well when you are learning then start with Oracle becoz u learn when you are working on it. U wanna to get ur work done without learning then SQL Server is the best bet. Hope this answers all ur doubts.. Regards Askani
