Abstract : File characteristics: computer data and program (70 files); ASCII character set. Physical description: 1 computer tape reel; 6250 bpi. System requirements: Digital Equipment TU81 Plus; VAX/VMS Version 4.7; TAR. A standard binding between Ada and SQL (Structured Query Language), the ANSI and DoD standard for accessing commercial relational data base management systems (DBMSs). SQL was not designed to be embedded within applications in general-purpose programming languages, such as Ada. Previously developed Ada-SQL bindings have had various technical drawbacks. A prototype Ada-SQL binding was built by automating the SQL Ada Module Extension methodology (SAME). SAME is method for building Ada applications that access DMBSs via SQL. SAME extends SQL by exploiting the features of Ada. The Ada code automatically generates the Ada package specifications and bodies to support the SAME methodology.
