Call-Level Interface

<database, standard> (SQL/CLI) A programming interface designed to support SQL access to databases from shrink-wrapped application programs.

CLI was originally created by a subcommittee of the SQL Access Group (SAG).

The SAG/CLI specification was published as the Microsoft Open DataBase Connectivity (ODBC) specification in 1992.

In 1993, SAG submitted the CLI to the ANSI and ISO SQL committees.

SQL/CLI provides an international standard implementation-independent CLI to access SQL databases. Client-server tools can easily access databases through dynamic link libraries.

It supports and encourages a rich set of client-server tools.

SQL/CLI is an addendum to 1992 SQL standard (SQL-92).

It was completed as ISO standard ISO/IEC 9075-3:1995 Information technology -- Database languages -- SQL -- Part 3: Call-Level Interface (SQL/CLI).

The current SQL/CLI effort is adding support for SQL3.
