SQL stands for Structured Query Language and it is generally referred to as SEQUEL. SQL is simple language to learn. SQL is a Nonprocedural language, as compared to the procedural or third generation languages (3GLs) such as COBOL and C. SQL was developed by IBM in the 1970s.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) published its first SQL standard in 1986 and a second widely adopted standard in 1989. ANSI released updates in 1992, known as SQL92 and SQL2, and again in 1999, termed both SQL99 and SQL3. Each time, ANSI added new features and incorporated new commands and capabilities into the language.
SQL is a simple, yet powerful, language used to create, access, and manipulate data and structure in the database.
DDL is used to define, alter, or drop database objects and their privileges. DDL statements will implicitly perform a commit.
DML is used to access, create, modify or delete data in the structures of the database.
