I have about 1.5 years experience in java/jsp/servlets... When i go for recruitment people ask me do u know oracle and then starts asking questions regarding them..
can you people please help me what things do i need to know when the job profile asks for oracle Pl/sql??? dbms concepts??? or something else.... one persone asked me to write stored procedure in interview... do i need to konw complete oracle for a java job??? i m a programmer not a database administrator...i dont understand what do they want...
It's not so much whether you "need" to know "Oracle" for a Java job. It's whether you want to...
These days, a vague question like "Do you know Oracle?" is completely ridiculous considering the tech stack Oracle currently has. It goes from the database all the way through the middle-tier (Fusion) into the view layer (JSF components).
If you *want* to spend time at the database end of it, then you'll probably want to pick up PL/SQL. But if I were you (being a Java/JSP/Servlets programmer) I'd be content with knowing SQL and be wary of jobs wanting you to write a lot of PL/SQL.
