People often ask me about this. This is the technique of embedding SQL database commands into
a programming language such as C, Fortran, Cobol, Java.
It is different from embedded C which is about putting C programmes on to small machines such as mobile phones.
Embedded programming can be done for any SQL type database.
For Oracle the languages are C/C++ (Pro*C), Cobol (Pro*Cobol) etc.,
A special case is embedding in Ada which became PL/SQL. Another variation is JDBC for Java and similar connectivity to any database.
For Informix the equivalent is ESQL, For SQLServer T-SQL. All these are very similar and the SQL is virtually identical,
Useful Oracle Sites :
Oracles' main site.
OTN Technical Information
Metalink for faults.
Other sites about Oracle.
There are many relational and non-relational ones spread through time.
DB2, A very early one, still good.
SQL Server, A windows version of Sybase.
I find O'Reilly books are the best. I use them a lot and they are invariably helpful and comprehensive.
The Oracle Press books from Osbourne are also helpful. Osbourne publish other Computer books.
Other useful publishers are John Wiley & Wrox, AddisonWesley, Que. But I love O'Reilly Books
If you like Dummies books then enjoy them. (Call me when you run out of solutions).
I just recommend my fellow IPSE members, Find them here (In Progress).
There are other direct contractor sites.Top
