(abbreviation of structured query language) High-level computer language designed for use with relational databases. Although it can be used by programmers in the same way as other languages, it is often used as a means for programs to communicate with each other. Typically, one program (called the “client”) uses SQL to request data from a database “server”.
Although originally developed by IBM, SQL is now widely used on many types of computer.(Structured Query Language)
A specialized language for sending queries to databases. Most industrial-strength and many smaller database applications can be addressed using SQL. Each specific application will have its own slightly different version of SQL implementing features unique to that application, but all SQL-capable databases support a common subset of SQL.
