The title has everything i'd like to know.
Might as well give an answer.
SQL is a language. It is not a database. It is the language a database uses to query the data in the tables.
Oracle is just a Database server. Not a very good one. It still gets it ass served on a plate bt DB2, Micosoft SQL Server and Sybase.
You can get Oracle and Sybase on OS X.
Or you can go the free route and get mysql, postgresql or sqlite. just to name a few. What are you going to be interfacing with? how big is your databases? Do you use lots of sp and views? Answers will help us get a version for you.
umm Oracle is pretty bad ass...which is why every fortune 50 company has it. DB2 is good from what I hear, the other's can't touch oracle though.
I'm talking here about databases for large corporations and in terms of standards.
Between, I tried to download Oracle from their website, but i couldn't find one for Mac OS X (Client Edition). I only found one version for Mac OS server!!
Thanks for your replies!
MySQL on a Mac?
MySQL runs on mac OS X have it running on a mac mini. Installs it self
from package installer and appears in the system preferences bonus.
for all the more details.
The FINK package list shows a few databases but most seem unsupported.
Are you joking or serious?
Take a look at this if you need more explicit instructions....
Actually, I was talking about this webpage http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/index.html
There i only found Oracle Database 10g Release 1 (10.1.0.3) for Mac OS X Server
Between, can MySQL work with Microsoft SQL Server? <-- Sorry if that was a stupid question!
Thanks again! I really appreciate it.
