I need to find definitions or explanations (DB2 and Oracle) for:

  • instance
  • database
  • connection
  • authority
  • authorization
  • transaction log
  • tablespace
  • application
  • agent
  • lock
  • lock timeout

Do someone know where can I find this?

This question is very vague; to answer any of it requires understanding most of the rest of it.I can only suggest reading Chapter 1 of Oracle Database Concepts, which covers all of it, and coming back with a more specific question once you've digested all of that.
