In programming world, database is an important factor in creating any kind of software or website. SQL (Structured Query Language) is a programming language that is used to query the stored information in database. When you type

Select * from table where name=’Harry’

The database will interpret this query and looks for the table that has the data named as “Harry”. To display it, you need to incorporate SQL code with another programming code such as PHP or Java. All the information that you have stored in the database will be simply managed using your system’s virtual memory.

If you want to know other database platform aside from MySQL, you might want to try MSSQL. This is the short version for Microsoft SQL server. Like MySQL, it can store any type of data but unlike it, MSSQL is not for free.

Hi there,

now a days relational databases are prevalent. By relational we mean, these databases keep their data in the forms of tables that have rows and columns of data and a key field which is used to identify the specific rows or columns. MySql is a relational database. In order to get data out from the database, we need to give specific instructions which comprise a specific language called SQL or structured query language. An example is “Select * from table_A where age > 25” this query will look in table table_A and bring out all the rows where age filed value is greater than 25. Similarly there is a whole plethora of statements that are used to manipulate data in a database. Some very common industry databases are Oracle, MS SQL Server, Sybase, DB2 etc.
