I would like to know the full form of SQL, since I found two answers to it: Sequential Query Language and Structured Query Language. If SQL does stand for Sequential Query Language, then I would like to know what the language is and where it is used.
SQL stands for Structured Query Language. It was originally developed by IBM in the 1970s. I've heard of people mistakenly calling SQL "simple" Query Language, and even "stored" Query Language, but using "sequential" is a new one on me. There is nothing sequential about SQL.
