Oracle is a RDBMS software, means, Oracle holds the database (data created/updated using application). Visual basic is tool to develop applications & this is from Microsoft. You can write programs/application to access the data from the RDBMS like Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, etc. Since the functionality differs (i.e. Oracle = RDBMS & Visual basic =Application development Tool) for the two software applications, "which one is the best" can not be answered.

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".
