Q

Oracle 11i vs. Oracle 11g

Expert Michael Hillenbrand explains the difference between Oracle 11i and Oracle 11g.

Is there an Oracle 11i and an 11g? If so, what is the difference? What are the other names for Oracle 11i and what is the suite made of?

Oracle 11i refers to the Oracle ERP Application Suite (often called Oracle E-Business Suite) and really has nothing to do with the database. The latest release (12) will be referred to as 12i. The confusing part is that Oracle used to call its database "i" for "internet" in releases 8 and 9, but now calls the database "g" for "grid". So, to summarize, Oracle 11i refers to the apps and Oracle 11g refers to the database.
