Oracle Database

An Oracle Database is a relational database management system (RDBMS) produced and marketed by Oracle Corporation.



Oracle stores data logically in the form of tablespaces (containing tables, indexes, etc.) and physically in the form of data files. Stored procedures and functions can be stored and executed within the database. These can be developed in SQL (link to SQL template), PL/SQL (link template PL/SQL), or in the object-oriented language Java.


Versions in use on EUROPA

  • Oracle 10.2 and 9.2



Guidelines and references

Most databases are hosted at the DC and, therefore, the webmaster or IRM need not worry about their creation or administration. On the other hand, he/she must enter a creation request using the Mirella application and it may take several weeks for the database to be created and made available for use.
