    Some differences are
    >DB2 is used generally at mainframe systems. Oracle is handy on distributed system.
    >Oracle directly supports a Java application server where you can deploy Java servlets while with DB2 you would need to employ a Java translator like Tomcat.
    >Oracle is Twice as Expensive as DB2
