Oracle Database Essentials: Complete Guide & Insights

Share this page:
Oracle Database (commonly referred to as Oracle RDBMS or simply as Oracle) is an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS)[2] produced and marketed by Oracle Corporation.
Larry Ellison and his friends, former co-workers Bob Miner and Ed Oates, started the consultancy Software Development Laboratories (SDL) in 1977. SDL developed the original version of the Oracle software. The name Oracle comes from the code-name of a CIA-funded project Ellison had worked on while previously employed by Ampex.
Oracle introduced the first commercial Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) almost 30 years ago.
Oracle Database is Oracle’s revolutionary new grid offering for database administrators, which include breakthrough self-management, storage management, and clustering features. It is designed to relieve system administrators from repetitive, low-value administrative work and provide them with an opportunity to increase their value and expand their technical skills. The new Oracle University curriculum tracks for Oracle Database 10g are tailored to the scale and needs of customers’ data centers.
Oracle D2K, aka Oracle Developer/2000, is a developer tool for Oracle version 5 to 7.2. It allows you to design reports and data input forms for Oracle databases. It is a client/server application development system for Windows, Macintosh and Motif from Oracle.
It is an earlier client/server application development system for Windows, Macintosh and Motif from Oracle. Formerly the Cooperative Development Environment, the core programs were Oracle Forms, Oracle Reports and Oracle Graphics. Oracle Procedure Builder provided drag and drop application partitioning. It also included Discoverer/2000 for queries and reports.
In the early 1990s, Oracle had two complementary, but quite different tools - SQL*Forms and SQL*ReportWriter. Both were character-based and there was some integration between the two although they were sold as separate products. The developer interface became more similar over time and they were eventually grouped together as Oracle IDE (Integrated Development Environment).
The suite was renamed to Oracle Developer and then to Oracle Developer/2000.
As with most products that had 2000 in their name, this was dropped after 1999 and the suite was renamed Oracle Developer Suite. Tools such as JDeveloper and Oracle Designer were added over subsequent years.
Most of the component parts of Oracle Developer Suite are now part of what Oracle calls Oracle Fusion Middleware.
The latest release, Oracle Developer Suite 10g consists of the following components:
Oracle JDeveloper Oracle Forms
Oracle Reports Oracle Designer
Oracle Discoverer Oracle Software Configuration Manager
Oracle Business Intelligence Beans

My experience at Unisoft Technologies has been nothing short of amazing. The practical approach to learning here is truly commendable. If you’re looking to get trained in Oracle, Unisoft Technologies is the place to be. The faculty here is incredibly supportive, and their teaching methods are top-notch. The learning environment is excellent. For instance, Saurabh Sir taught us Oracle by comparing various versions of Oracle on different machines, providing clear and comprehensive knowledge. The faculty members are highly experienced and certified. They teach from their wealth of experience, which greatly enhances the learning process. The staff here, including Sushmita Ma’am and Nidhi Ma'am, are very supportive. Unisoft fosters a friendly environment where everyone strives to make you feel comfortable. The owner, Mrs. Pratigya Thakur, is an inspiring and helpful figure. She is a great personality in her own right, and there’s a lot to learn from her. She is always motivating others, which adds to the positive atmosphere. After completing my MCA, I was searching for Oracle certification and training. Unisoft proved to be the best place to get trained. I was under the guidance of Mr. Saurabh Joshi, who guided me exceptionally well and helped in solving my problems. Now, I am an OCA in Oracle 1Z0-071 with a score of 92%, all thanks to Saurabh Sir and my batch mates (Diksha, Deepraj, Swetank, Nidhi, Sayali, and Shiwani) who inspired me. It was an awesome experience learning by doing.

If you’re in a dilemma and asking any of the following questions: 1. “Is this course right for me?” 2. “I’m a recent graduate. What should I do next?” 3. “I’m a working professional and I want to change my domain. Which domain should I choose that would shape my professional career?” 4. “I’m a Non-IT graduate. I want to change my career track to IT. Which course is more beneficial?” Then, Unisoft Technologies is the place to visit for the right career guidance and to gain a deep insight into different IT technologies. Unisoft Technologies is a hub of professionally trained counselors and highly experienced faculty. I’ve been a part of Unisoft Technologies for over a year now. I started my journey with Unisoft as a C++ student and eventually learned Java and Oracle Database. Considering I’m from a Non-IT background, I was initially unsure which course to choose. I knew only about C, C++, and Java before I visited Unisoft. My counselor at the time, Sushmita Ma’am, introduced me to a whole new world that exists besides Java. Not only that, she also explained about different types of Certifications and their importance for students, especially freshers. I learned C++ under the guidance of Akshay Sir and Java under Raina Nair Ma’am. Both these faculties are the best in their respective fields. They make the subject look easy even for someone who is not from an IT background. I learned Oracle Database under the guidance of Saurabh Joshi Sir. He is the best faculty I have ever known. Highly experienced and with a vast ocean of knowledge, he is the best when it comes to teaching Oracle Database. He is my teacher, my guide, and my mentor till date. My other mentor in Unisoft is Pratigya Ma’am. She is always the one who will constantly motivate me and will keep on providing lots of knowledge about different technologies. At Unisoft, it’s not just about giving our best, it’s about bringing out the best in students. We are located in Nagpur. Our excellent counselors include Sushmita Ma’am, Nidhi Ma’am, Siddhi Ma’am, Bhagyashri Ma’am, Soniya Ma’am and Satish Sir. Each and every one of them will guide you correctly. I would recommend Unisoft to all the students, fresher graduates, job seekers as well as working professionals who are looking to change their domain or are looking to enhance their skillset.
