Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Would like to know, if there is a possibility to use Linux without Java.
As I am trying to start to build the architecture of Linux being the operating system, with a database application that would host or control the flow of data for small size company to midsize company, at this stage.
Any suggestions at the architecture level would be appreciated.
Why do you think that linux or any other operating system needs Java? Only programs written in Java needs it, so Linux does not need it. About "architecture level", sorry, but I don't known what does it means, but it is suitable for "controling flow of data".
It's certainly possible to run Linux without java, by just not installing it. It's not necessary unless you need to run java applications. As for the rest of your post, I have no idea at all what you're planning. Buzzwords != communication.
2.database application = need suggestions, as Oracle for example is based on Java to my knowledge.
I'm hearing that you want a secure platform to host your Intranet applications, and that you don't want the applications to be built on a Java-based stack. Not a problem.
Oracle's database is not "based on Java." It's fine to use (and buy) Oracle if you want to, but it's more common to have MariaDB, PostgresSQL or MongoDB as the database, and then an applications layer based on Django, Rails, node.js or PHP.
