MySQL: non-SQL access, AS/400

Yesterday, a number of Sun Japan employees got educated on MySQL in 1 day training event and I was among them. The most interesting feature to me was "NDB API" which is, according to trainer, SQL free.

I vaguely remember that some standard body, either FIPS,ISO or ANSI, defines non-SQL access to RDBMS. To confirm my memory, I googled hard. But I couldn't turn up anything. So, my memory may be wrong.

But while googling, I stumbled upon a very interesting post. (And I love it when it happens!)

midrange.com -- MIDRANGE-L -- RE: Multi-member files - Big picture feedback

It says:

 

even Dr.Codd allowed non-SQL access to RDBMS data. True, until recently it was only DB2/400 that gave it to you

 

Coincidentally, AS/400 (aka iSeries) was also one of the interesting topic in yesterday's training.
