Re: RHCE certification

Oracle is an application while RHEL is an operating system.

Certification in Oracle is an application certification.
Certification in RHEL is an OS certification.

SQL* is NOT the CLI!

Oracle trains people how to use the database.
Why do you think that they are trained in a shell or the CLI?
