SQL Full Form in Computer-Structured Query Language


Structured Query Language (SQL) is a domain-specific language used for managing and manipulating relational databases. It is the standard language for interacting with relational database management systems (RDBMS). SQL provides a set of commands and syntax for performing tasks such as querying data, updating data, inserting data, and deleting data in a relational database.

Key components of SQL include:

  1. Data Definition Language (DDL):
    • CREATE: Used to create database objects like tables, indexes, or views.
    • ALTER: Modifies the structure of existing database objects.
    • DROP: Deletes database objects like tables, indexes, or views.
  2. Data Manipulation Language (DML):
    • SELECT: Retrieves data from one or more tables.
    • INSERT: Adds new rows of data to a table.
    • UPDATE: Modifies existing data in a table.
    • DELETE: Removes rows from a table.
  3. Data Control Language (DCL):
    • GRANT: Provides specific privileges to users or roles.
    • REVOKE: Removes specific privileges from users or roles.
  4. Transaction Control Language (TCL):
    • COMMIT: Saves all changes made during the current transaction.
    • ROLLBACK: Undoes changes made during the current transaction.
    • SAVEPOINT: Sets a point within a transaction to which you can later roll back.
  5. Query Language:
    • SQL is primarily a declarative language used for querying databases. The most common query is the SELECT statement, which retrieves data from one or more tables based on specified criteria.

SQL is not case-sensitive, meaning keywords like SELECT or FROM can be written in uppercase or lowercase. However, it is a common convention to write SQL keywords in uppercase to distinguish them from table and column names.
