In my previous article, I discussed the goals I had set out for our programming group and how those goals helped determine the skills that I was looking for among the candidates for a job in our company. One of those goals was to encourage the use of SQL among our programmers for database I/O.
There are lots of reasons for this, including the facts that SQL is a standard database access language that can be used across many systems and programming languages and that the SQL query engine is the only one that IBM is enhancing on the IBM i to improve efficiency in data access.
