IBM, Oracle and Tandem are joining forces to produce Java SQL, a language extension which they claim will simplify Java access to relational databases.
When completed, the JSQL specificatiion will be submitted to the ISO standards committee for approval. The three partner companies have pledged too develop products that adhere to the standard.
JSQL is intended to enable developers to write applications that can run on any platform that supports Java and any relational database that supports JSQL. The proposed standard will run on top of the existing JDBC Java to database connectivity specification. JSQL applications will be able to translate SQL queries into JDBC compliant calls.
JSQL is targeted at enterprise developers who write applications with static SQL. The initial implementation wiill be based on a precompiler that generates standard Java code with JDBC calls.
