Originally, I used to call it “Natural Language to SQL Translator”, but I guess what I intend to do at this point of time is not Natural Language, it is rather a specialized syntax, which I guess can be further extended to natural language. Let me make a thing clear, about the system :
- It is something which the user sees, and types a query in, it has nothing to do with the data-related operations in a database.
- The only time it deals with data, is when the result-set is generated and given back to the system, so that it can be post-processed into a better manner.
Hence, its sole purpose is, to help user (end-user/client/power user/reporters) query the database and to give the user a better presentation of the result-set.
