RDBMS is Relational Database management system. OODBMS is Object Oriented database. OODBMS was something which was hyped sometime after OO programming started, but never really took off. Oracle is an Object-Relational database because it includes some OO features in the RDBMS.

SQL is not an object-orientated language, and I'm not sure what an OO query language would look like. So far as I can tell, ObjectStore (for example) doesn't have one.
