Question: What are the limitations of mysql in Comparison of Oracle?

Answer: Every column in a database table is assigned a data type. The data type maybe native to the database management system or may be a custom data type. Each Oracle9i Database native data type belongs to one of six categories: character number date large object (LOB) raw and row identifier. Oracle date data types only store valid dates support automatic time zone conversion and store sub-second precision. MySQL categorizes data types into string numeric and date and time types. Unlike Oracle MySQL date data types can store invalid dates do not support time zones and the precision of time values is limited to one second

User ROLES functionality not supported in MySQL:

Oracle supports ROLES functionality (grouping the privileges under one name as a ROLE) for assigning the privileges to the similar user accounts. In MySQL, this is not possible, and even if we have 1000 user accounts to granted a new privilege, or a new usre to be created, we have to do it manually for each user. Source: CoolInterview.com
