What is SQL......

Often referred to as Structured Query Language, is a database designed for managing data in relational database management systems (RDBMS). Its scope includes data insert, query, update and delete, schema creation and modification, and data access control.


SQL was developed at IBM by Donald D. Chamberlin and Raymond F. Boyce in the early 1970s.
This version, initially called SEQUEL (Structured English Query Language)
The acronym SEQUEL was later changed to SQL because "SEQUEL" was a trademark of the UK-based Hawker Siddeley aircraft company.
