Summary
  • Ashton-Tate Co's next-generation dBase IV may lack full SQL support, which may have serious ramifications, according to some sources. The next MSDOS version of dBase may be able to translate a subset of SQL statements into the dBase language, but will be unable to translate dBase commands into SQL: this would make dBASE IV unable to query host-based SQL-based databases. SQL is an emerging standard that has been endorsed by most major relational DBMS makers, and will be a vital part of IBM's Systems Applications Architecture. The analysis suggests the dBase architecture, defections of key developers, and the late start in serious SQL development may limit Ashton-Tate's SQL efforts. Sources claim SQL-support is considered critical to Ashton-Tate's long-term success and expect a more complete implementation of SQL in future company OS-2 products.
