|Oracle® Database Lite SQL Reference
Part Number B28925-01
This preface introduces the Oracle Database Lite SQL Reference. This reference describes the Structured Query Language (SQL) used to manage information in an Oracle Database Lite database.
Oracle SQL is a superset of the SQL-92 standard defined by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Standards Organization (ISO).
Syntax descriptions are provided in this book for various SQL, PL/SQL, or other command-line constructs in graphic form or Backus Naur Form (BNF). See Oracle Database SQL Reference for information about how to interpret these descriptions.
Our goal is to make Oracle products, services, and supporting documentation accessible, with good usability, to the disabled community. To that end, our documentation includes features that make information available to users of assistive technology. This documentation is available in HTML format, and contains markup to facilitate access by the disabled community. Accessibility standards will continue to evolve over time, and Oracle is actively engaged with other market-leading technology vendors to address technical obstacles so that our documentation can be accessible to all of our customers.
