HI, i started looking into hibernate and spring..so which DB knowledge is good regarding job point of view? either mysql or oracle?
i am a newbee to sql/mysql/oracle..
initially i wanted to learn mysql.But now i am confused of learning oracle or mysql?
i posted this doubt in jdbc /spring forum also... sorry ..
MySQL is real easy to play with, and easy to install. I don't even think it pings the registry or anything. Whenever I test a new technology, I like using MySQL - it tends to not get in the way too much.
Here's a little CBT tutorial I put together on setting up a Windows environment with MySQL. Enjoy:
Well, if you need to know PL/SQL, MySQL is no use.
Big databases like Oracle present quite a learning curve just to get going. With MySQL you can just get stuck in. On the flip side, MySQL is quite lax about some fairly key relational database concepts (for example, the MyISAM DB engine does not enforce constraints!) so if you are planning to do any database backed programming long term mix it up and use both.
It does not really matter much if you use mysql or Oracle if you want to focus on Spring and Hibernate. Would be better if you use Oracle if you have job focus because it has been used in many enterprise level applications. If you do not want to use PL/SQL, you can choose to not to use it.
