Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T). This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 9075-10-05 (adoption of ISO/IEC 9075-10:2003). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 9075-10:2008 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
ISO/IEC 9075-2 specifies embedded SQL for the programming languages: Ada, C, COBOL, Fortran, MUMPS, Pascal, and PL/I. This part of ISO/IEC 9075 defines similar features of Database language SQL that support embedding of SQL-statements into programs written in the Java(TM)programming language (Java is a registered trademark of Sun Microsystems, Inc.). The embedding of SQL into Java is commonly known as SQLJ. This part of ISO/IEC 9075 specifies the syntax and semantics of SQLJ, as well as mechanisms to ensure binary portability of resulting SQLJ applications. In addition, it specifies a number of Java packages and their contained classes (including methods).
Throughout this part of ISO/IEC 9075, the terms SQLJ and SQL/OLB are used synonymously.
