A Rexx interface to SQL databases

Version 2.5

26 September 2010

1. Introduction

This document defines an interface to provide access to SQL databases for Rexx programs. Rexx/SQL consists of a number of external Rexx functions which provide the necessary capabilities to connect to, query and manipulate data in any SQL database. This document is designed to assist in the implementation of this interface for any SQL-based database system that provides an appropriate 3GL API.

An appendix to this document is included for each implementation of this interface providing implementation-specific features. Where implementations may differ, this is highlighted in the function definitions to assist the user where source code compatibility between different database vendors is required.
