"The additional value of having Java inside the Oracle database is all the security that is applied to an Oracle database will be enforced on Java's stored procedures as well."
"The most valuable feature is automation."
"Able to write queries more efficiently and the management of data has become better and easier."
"It's very clever."
"It has a programming language so anything that we require for Selenium is all available there."
"Very easy to use, and it's very democratic in the enterprise."
"The replication feature, user interface, reporting services, and notification services are really good. They are providing SQL profiler and SQLCMD as their integrated software, so we don't find it difficult to integrate any of our third-party applications with MS SQL because all of them support MS SQL very clearly."
"The initial setup is time-efficient and can be done independently."
"The SQL Server is low maintenance, it does not require advanced technical skills to maintain or use it as you might in other similar database solutions. You need some knowledge on how to access the solution and how to query it but it is fairly straightforward."
"Its speed and the ease of server management are valuable. If I compare Microsoft SQL Server to MySQL, what I like in Microsoft SQL Server is the speed. We are using Microsoft Management Studio for managing our Microsoft SQL Server, and the user interface that I get to work with is also better."
"The most valuable feature of the solution, compared to other RDBMS solutions, such as Oracle MySQL or IBM DB2, it is more user-friendly and has backward compatibility. For example, if you have an application that requires an old version of SQL Server and you have the latest version of the license, you are able to install and use it in backward compatibility mode. They keep supporting the existing legacy application."
"The backups are excellent."
"It's a flexible solution."
"The solution should continue to keep updating and improving the Java language."
"It'll be better if Oracle Java supports open source technologies, like Node.js."
"The biggest lesson that I have learned from using Oracle products is vendor lock-in."
"Needs improvement in consistency issues with respect to timeframes."
"In terms of improvement, I'd like an automation tool that is lower priced. The core prices are very high."
"The solution could be more secure."
"Its ability to handle certain kinds of large data could be improved."
"The performance is not always the best."
"Although I am satisfied with the solution, some clients have asked us to resolve technical issues, such as those involving silver solution and replication."
"In terms of exceptionally large databases, it doesn't scale as well as Oracle."
"In terms of what could be improved, everything on-premise is now moving to the cloud. Obviously SQL Server has also moved, because Microsoft Excel has its own cloud called Azure Finance. Every solution comes with its own advantages and disadvantages."
"With so much data, things can get slow, which is why I would like to be able to understand how to better optimize queries."
"The interface could be updated to make it slightly more user-friendly."
Java DB is a relational database management system (RDBMS). Data is stored and queried via SQL or JDBC. Like other RDBMSs, Java DB can also be accessed through a persistence layer such as JPA, Hibernate, or JDO. Java objects can be stored in the columns of Java DB tables.
SQL Server is the Microsoft-driven relational database management system. This system is used to store data as well as retrieve it when necessary; these functions can be supported by individual users or by multiple users within a larger network. The Microsoft SQL Server has warehousing options, quality and integration services, management tools that are simple to implement, as well as robust tools for development.
Looking at the more technical end of things, Microsoft SQL Server uses query languages such as T-SQL and ANSI SQL. Disaster recovery is one of the product's most prominent features, in addition to in-memory performance, scalability, and corporate business intelligence capabilities.
Oracle Java DB is ranked 10th in Relational Databases with 5 reviews while SQL Server is ranked 1st in Relational Databases with 143 reviews. Oracle Java DB is rated 8.4, while SQL Server is rated 8.2. The top reviewer of Oracle Java DB writes "A relational database management system that's very clever and object-oriented". On the other hand, the top reviewer of SQL Server writes "Veteran solution with critical log shipping feature". Oracle Java DB is most compared with MySQL, Apache Derby, Oracle Database, SingleStore DB and SAP HANA, whereas SQL Server is most compared with SAP HANA, Oracle Database, LocalDB, IBM Db2 Database and Teradata.
