What research project require SQL?
SQL is just an interface, and generally thought of as a bad thing to
use at the Client due to the amount of bandwidth required for it.
It is better to put some middleware in there so one can also add some
integrity and input validation checks, and have the user application
talk to the middleware.
E.g. All web sites out there. Any XML web services.
