The language SQL (Structured Query Language) is standardized by international standard bodies such as ISO and ANSI. By using standard SQL it should be easier to move applications between different database systems without the need to rewrite a substantial amount of code.
Mimer SQL has an extensive support for Unicode and SQL Collations, i.e. multilingual sorting, which makes Mimer SQL an excellent choice when developing applications that should handle texts according to local language rules or simultaneously handle texts in different languages.
This section presents various APIs that can be used to access a Mimer SQL database.
