SQL Databases

shape Description

SQL Databases are huge gathering of logical related information which can be created, accessed, managed, and updated. The data may be in any form like text and numbers.

Many types of data stores are present, such as files on the file system, where data reading and writing will be very slow. So in the present generation, Relational Database Administration framework is being utilized to store and oversee colossal measure of information. All relational database management systems like MySQL, MS Access, Oracle, Sybase, Postgre and SQL Server use SQL as standard database language.

shape Conceptual

  • Queries – Is used to fetch the database from the database.
  • RDBMS – Stands for relational database management system.
  • Operating system – Which support basic computer functions.
  • Database – Is a logical related data which is stored in the database.

shape Examples

The below example describes the sample example of sql query.

sql> create table student(stu_id number(4),stu_name varchar(255),fee int);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.32 sec)

sql> insert into student values(1001,'rock',12000);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

sql> insert into student values(1002,'hairy',13000);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)

sql> insert into student values(1003,'scena',13000);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)

select * from student;
| stu_id | stu_name | fee   |
|   1001 | rock    | 12000  |
|   1002 | hairy   | 13100  |
|   1003 | scena   | 13000  | 
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)

It will display all the student table values that are stored in the database.
