What is SQL

SQL is a standard language for accessing databases. It is used to perform operations on the records stored in database such as updating records, deleting records, creating and modifying tables, views etc. SQL is a server side scripting language .It is designed for managing data in a relational database management system (RDBMS). SQL is based on relational algebra and tuple relational calculus. SQL is just a query language, it is not a database. To perform SQL queries, you need to install any database for example Oracle, MySQL, MongoDB, PostGre SQL, SQL Server, DB2 etc.
