Abstract

These guidelines describe the Structured Query Language (SQL) ADA Module Extensions, or SAME, a method for the construction of ADA applications that access database management systems whose data manipulation language is SQL. As its name implies, the SAME extends the module language defined in the ANSI SQL standard to fit the needs of ADA. The defining characteristic of the use of the module language is that the SQL statements appear together, physically separated from the ADA application, in an object called the module. the ADA application accesses the module through procedure calls. 

The primary audience for this document consists of application developers and technicians creating ADA applications for SQL database management systems. The document contains a complete description of the SAME, including its motivation.
