18.2 Initialization

The initialization of Common SQL involves three stages. Firstly the SQL interface loaded. Next, the database type (actually class) to be used is initialized. Finally, Common SQL is used to connect to a database. These stages are explained in more detail in this section.

The rest of the definitions in this chapter are exported from the sql package. Application packages requiring convenient access to these facilities should therefore use the sql package.
