Abstract : The purpose of this IDA Memorandum Report is to present a binding specification between the programming language Ada and the database language SQL(Structured Query Language). This document will be used to provide a capability for accessing a relational database from the Ada language and will provide a cross reference between the Ada/SQL language and the SQL language. As a user's guide, M-360 addresses the functionality of the ANSI SQL standard and identifies a subset implementation of it as Level 1. A Level 1 implementation was delivered to the DLA for use with a database package that is intended for regional administrative systems. An Ada application prototype will be implemented to demonstrate software engineering using Ada in the environmental provided for these regional administrative systems. In addition, an IDA Memorandum Report M-361 has been published as a companion document which provides the source listings for the demonstration software that implements this Level 1 version of Ada/SQL.
