This is a guide to SQL (Structure Query Language), the relational database industry's standard high-level programming language. Popular application languages, such as Visual Basic, Visual C++, PowerBuilder and Delphi, rely on SQL statements to access data from relational databases. The book covers SQL commands specific to the three most common databases worldwide - Oracle, Informix and Sybase. It includes coverage of PL/SQL (Oracle's procedural extension of SQL and Informix object extensions, as well as coverage of J/SQL (a version of SQL that is embedded in Java), which is rapidly becoming a viable database application programming language. Standardized in 1989 by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), SQL is an industry-standard language used for data definition, data manipulation, data management, access protection and transition control. SQL uses tables, indexes, keys, rows and columns to identify storage locations. Commands are built using various components of SQL to query and return information, which is then stored on relational databases.
