database, standard (SQL/CLI) A programming interface
designed to support SQL access to databases from
shrink-wrapped application programs.
CLI was originally created by a subcommittee of the SQLAccess Group (SAG). The SAG/CLI specification was published
specification in 1992. In 1993, SAG submitted the CLI to the
ANSI and ISO SQL committees.
SQL/CLI provides an international standard
implementation-independent CLI to access SQL databases.
Client-server tools can easily access databases through
dynamic link libraries. It supports and encourages a rich
set of client-server tools.
SQL/CLI is an addendum to 1992 SQL standard (SQL-92). It was
completed as ISO standard ISO/IEC 9075-3:1995 Information
technology -- Database languages -- SQL -- Part 3: Call-Level
Interface (SQL/CLI). The current SQL/CLI effort is adding
support for SQL3.
