Data Sublanguages, Programming, and Data Integrity

My December 2016 post @All Analytics (that I did not link to from here).

Second, many years ago I wrote an article titled “Integrity is Not Only Referential” with a double-entendre: I was criticizing a DBMS vendor that was claiming, misleadingly, that its product’s application-enforced integrity was actually relational DBMS-enforced integrity and also deploring data professionals’ poor grasp of this important distinction that was letting vendors get away with it. Sadly, nothing much has changed since then.

Read it all.

Please comment there, not here.
