ABSTRACT

        The  HQ  USAF Assistant Chief of Staff for Information Systems
anticipates the adoption of SQL as the Air Force  standard  Relational
data  base  query  language.   The  Air  Force will probably adopt the
American  National  Standard  (ANS)  Database  Language  SQL  as   its
Relational   query  language.   A  draft  proposed  American  National
Standard (dpANS)/International Standard Database Language  SQL  is  in
the  public  review  process.  Given the above Air Force position, the
WIS JPMO began a project with the Institute for Defense  Analysis  and
RACOM  Computer Professionals to develop a standard Ada DBMS interface
(Ada/SQL) based on the dpANS Database Language SQL.

        A  "Proposed  Binding  Ada  to Database Language SQL" has been
presented to the responsible  American  National  Standards  Committee
(X3H2).   We  anticipate  its adoption as the DoD and ANS/ISO standard
Ada relational DBMS interface and it will be the WIS Standard Ada DBMS
interface.   As  such,  we recommend the Ada/SQL interface be used for
any development of an Ada DBMS interface.

        The  RAPPORT  and DAMES DBMS Ada interfaces were among the R&D
precursors developed to  define  an  Ada  DBMS  interface.   They  are
provided for information only and their syntax should not be used as a
basis to build an Ada interface for any other DBMS.
