Project Information

RAQUEL is the name of a relational database programming language
          and also
RAQUEL is the name of the database management system that executes that language.

Open Source Project
The RAQUEL Database System is being developed as an Open Source Project.
A prototype of the system is available from SourceForge,
                      together with a simple GUI frontend to illustrate the RAQUEL notation.
Contributors to the project are welcome,
                      be they potential users or potential developers.
Planned Benefits of the RAQUEL Database System
A more powerful, flexible and easier-to-use database language than SQL. It is extendable so that it can manipulate a variety of different kinds of data stored in relations (i.e. is automatically object-relational).
A modular construction that can be tailored to different kinds of circumstances. It also accommodates plug-ins to support different kinds of data, and (to maximise performance) different kinds of physical storage.
